SR: Brumbies 24 Rebels 32



The Brumbies, who arrive in Melbourne having beaten Western Force and Hurricanes at home and Waratahs and Stormers in Canberra are on top the Australian conference after six rounds. They were particularly impressive in defeating the Waratahs and the only blot against their name so far is their 17-27 defeat to the Reds in their first match.
Since that win over the Cheetahs, the Rebels were poor and punished appropriately by Western Force in Perth but showed great improvement and impressive fight to go down against the star-studded Crusaders in Melbourne ten days ago. In Sydney they competed manfully for 40 minutes, before three moments of magic from former charge Kurtley Beale saw the ‘Waratahs run away with it.

    Brumbies shows some respect to Rebels defence and goes for poles now….

  3. So glad Peyper is doing duty in Aus. No way he can spoil a SA game from there. Jees dont know what went wrong cos I really rated him as ref at one point.

  4. What a idiot is Peyper…..Penalty given….as the ball goes to the corner the hooter sounds and the idiot that is Peyper blows for half time….now I understand why people are calling him arrogant

    Halftime Score: Rebels 3 Brumbies 10

  5. Penalty TRY to Brumbies should have expect that from Peyper….

    How crooked can the brumbies through in the ball in the scrum, he through it in under the locks feet…Idiot that is Peyper!!

  6. Jees Methos, a yellow valiant would be awesome. Havent had one of those on ruggaworld in years! That and a proper brannasnacht, like they used to be!

  7. Brumbies gets penalty and kick out inside Rebels 22…..

    Attacking lineout for Brumbies….

    Over through and Rebels clean up….Brumbies take it off but loose it again…..

    Rebels kick down field ….22 kick out from Brumbies….

  8. Times up….win against the Brumbies 32-24….

    Good comeback from the Rebels…..kak game though….too much kicking and off course we had Peyper as the referee which says it all…..

    Glad it is over…..

  9. Shyte shyte shyte. That is 2 from 2 that I got wrong so far. Sigh…

    Methos not sure bunny knows a yellow valiant, was before his time on ruggaworld me thinks.

  10. Dawie has been missing in action now for a while, so I scheme he carent mind if we try to tune a valiant ourselves. We’ll ask Brad Pitt se boetie Ta Pitt from Boksburg to gaan gooi n draai by dawie and borrow die valiant to visit his sharks supporter boetie Stu Pitt in Danville. Ja they are there too ne.
