Brumbies sneak through 15 - 13, with Riann Smit missing a sideline conversion in the 82nd minute to take the game into extra time. It was a ding-dong battle with both teams hammering in defence and very active in the breakdown. Cheetahs got two tries to none, with the Brumbies just lacking that polish to find the try line. For example, Mowen threw two bad passes to an unmarked player on the wing within 10 of the try line to butcher the tries. However, the Cheetahs defence also gave its all to make sure the Brumbies couldn't get easy or fast ball. Good, hard game.
Brumbies have a tough task with the Bulls in SA next week, don't expect them to win due to the travel, being a bit off and the quality of the Bulls, but I hope they give the Bulls a tough fight.
