Tough win against Brumbies

Mission accomplished. The Blues secured a decisive if hard-fought victory over the Brumbies in Canberra, picking up a five-point win with the bonus point. On the face of it, an 18-12 win looks slim but the victory was more emphatic that the scoreline would suggest, scoring three unconverted tries to none and winning most of […]
