Brumbies captain Ben Mowen says that his team showed a "lot of grit" in holding out the Reds in their 19-all draw in Brisbane.

The Brumbies were on a final warning for taking the Reds mauls to ground and they also lost a player to the sin-bin in each half.

"There was a lot of grit to hold them out for as long as we did on our try-line, probably a little bit of ill-discipline cost us but it was just desperation coming out," Brumbies skipper Ben Mowen said.

"That was by far the quickest game we've played this year and they're the games you prepare for in the pre-season and you're not going to get them unless you have legs to run in the end.

"We knew that there was going to be one or two moments that were going to decide the game and neither team got them," added Mowen.
