Brumbies captain Stephen Moore says that he was happy with his team’s performance after they beat the Force 27-15 with a bonus point.

The result is the Brumbies third in four matches this year and their tenth in a row in Canberra.

The Brumbies led from start to finish as they put four tries past the struggling Force to gain an important bonus point win.

The win moves the Brumbies into top spot on the competition standings with 15 points, but the Stormers have the chance to overtake the Brumbies when they come up against the Sharks.

In his first game starting at home since returning from injury, Brumbies captain, Stephen Moore, got through 54 minutes before being replaced and was happy with the team’s winning performance, particularly the maul, which chewed up plenty of metres for the home side on their way to a bonus point.

“These Australian derbies are always very tight and toughly contested so I’m happy to get away with a five-point win. It’s good to win again at home and we’ve got two tough away games coming up,” Moore said.

“Yeah it (the maul) went okay tonight. We’ve worked hard on it, but we don’t want to overdo it.

“I thought we were a bit scratchy coming out of our half tonight so we’re going to have to work on that during the week. As we go forward we’re going to have to be a bit tidier than that.

“But I did think our defence was really good tonight, we fought hard for each other we stuck to our systems and we kept them to 15 points, which if you do that you’ll win most of your games.”

The Brumbies face the Reds in Brisbane next week at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Earlier this season the Brumbies beat the Reds 47-3 in Canberra.
