Love it when backs come in a try and push on a maul

It’s cute

Ponies return the favor, but why can these teams not exit from the kick-off?

Nice try by the Brumbies.

But I have ask, what on earth is Horan talking about, turning down 3-point in front of the posts because, "the fans want the win, the Brumbies want the win"?

That is a complete non-sequitur.

Since when does taking an easy 3 points to reduce the score line to under one score mean you "don't want the win"?

Glad they scored anyway.

He'd be good over at the Force. They need a good 10.

Not much in this you would think. Harrison is dead right, the Brumbies have been flying up on defence and the Highlanders look, maybe unsettled, but more than that need to play to their game plan... in the Brumbies half.

Good game, both sides need a little fine tuning. Who ever does it first could be flying.

Smart adjustment by the clan, turning the Brumbies defence with kicks in behind.

Sneaky is great to watch — you can see him checking the defense and firing the optimal pass to crack the defensive line open

Highlanders will want to pad out their bonus point advantage with a couple more unanswered tries to make the Crusaders job tomorrow as hard as possible.

The most satisfying part of that game was being able to turn off Sean Mahoney's yelling after the final whistle.

So assuming the Blues will beat the Force,the Crusaders need a bonus point win by 33 or more over the Rebels tomorrow to push the Highlanders out of the final.

Are you serious?

The Saders are about to seriously kick the Rebels in the nuts.

A 50 pt margin will be a moral victory to the men from Melbourne.

I am very proud of their efforts, this season whether they make the final or not. They have been far from perfect, but really, I see a lot more potential in the Highlanders for next year and beyond.

Some decent ish indivudual performances from the Brumbies, but they looked a bit rudderless without Loloseio.

Well played Landers, ill be supporting you in the final.

Pretty much...

A number of Brumbies players looked really good - Lonergan, Frost, Valetini, White, Simone, Ikitau, Wright and Banks all had pretty good games... but they played a little too loose in that middle period which played into the 'landers hands.

Did the Brumbies win a single lineout after Lonergan came off? :blush:

Brown continues this trajectory then surely he is a shot at the All Blacks.

He will have to first tread the path of such luminary assistant All Black coaches as...Brad Mooar and....John Plumtree first though.

As we know that is the only succession path to the top job.

To be fair, at least rad Mooar is really attractive. It's a long season and who can blame Ian Foster for wanting some eye-candy in the coaching box?

As a Crusaders fan I was disgusted with the Brumbies final two lineouts. Both were terribly executed with possession meekly handed back to the Highlanders. I can only imagine how Brumbies fans felt, although by that late stage of the match Crusaders fans had more interest in the match than they did.

The last one was 5m out, perfect for a line out mail and try to eliminate the bonus point

Can’t believe Smith kicking the ball away twice in the couple of minutes when they needed to hold onto the ball. Inviting the Brumbies to take away their bonus point.
Pretty dumb really. :yawn:

Eh, it worked.

Landers will pose a much bigger challenge to the Blues than the Force did tonight.
