Brumbies coach Jake White has enjoyed a dream start with his new Super Rugby side after they cruised to a 25-0 trial victory over the Western Force at Rugby Park in Darwin on Saturday night.
Brumbies 25 Force 0
In what was the first trial match of the year for both teams, the wet and windy conditions contributed to an error-riddled performance.
The Brumbies were first on the scoreboard when lock Ben Hand breached the Force’s defence to touch down late in the first quarter.
The Western Australian side showed more composure in the third quarter, however the Brumbies defence held firm despite being restricted to 14 men when flanker Peter Kimlin was sent to the sin bin for a late shoulder charge.
Workhorse Brumbies prop Jerry Yanuyanutawa was prominent for the Brumbies before taking a heavy knock and coming off the field after 30 minutes, while Nic White slotted two second-half penalties to complete the emphatic win.
