Match detail

We are waiting for the kick off.
The Brumbies kick off and we are underway.
1.00: The Force win an early penalty but its in their half so they kick for touch and set up a line out just inside the Brumbies half.
3.00: The Brumbies defence is solid and wins them a penalty. They kick for touch and set the line out up 10m out from the Force tryline.
4.00: Brumbies win the line out and Christian Lealiifano passes to Jesse Mogg who scores the first TRY!
5.00:  Lealiifano takes the conversion but hooks it. Missed.
8.00: Time in opposition half so far : Brumbies 66% Force 33%
12.00: The Brumbies kick the ball out on the full so the Force have a line out. The Force put in is however not straight so the Brumbies have a scrum.
15.00: The Brumbies are pushing the Force back into their 22 but take the ball out. The Force's line out is however not straight again so the Brumbies get another scrum from a Force line out.
16.00: The Brumbies win the scrum and Henry Speight slices through the Force's defence and scores under the posts. The TMO checks everything and it's awarded. TRY!
17.00: Lealiifano adds the conversion.
18.00: As the Force are on attack Tevita Kuridrani gets the ball and breaks away, he passes to Speight who gets the ball away before stepping into touch and the Brumbies attack until the Force concede a penalty.
20.00: Lealiifano slots the penalty.
22.00: The Brumbies attack forces the Force to scramble in defence and they concede a penalty on the back foot. Instead of going for posts they go for touch.
24.00: The Brumbies win the line out and attack. George Smith loses the ball in the tackle and a Force knock on is ruled. The Brumbies therefore have a 5m attacking scrum.
25.0: The Brumbies snipe again and Tevita Kuridrani gets tackled as he goes over after shoving off three tackles and he slams the ball down for the TRY! That's his first in Super Rugby.
26.00:Lealiifano adds the conversion.
27.00: The Force complete a line out and move the ball through their backs but the Brumbies knock the ball down so the Force have a penalty for taking a man out in the air earlier. They kick for the corner.
28.00: The Force can't completely control the ball after the line out and the Brumbies take the ball over the tryline which gives the Force a 5m scrum. The Force win the scrum and Dellit almost scores. They are held out and Toomua almost gets away with an intercept but he is offside so the Force have a penalty and take the scrum.
31.00: The Force win the scrum but the Force's don't protect the ball at the breakdown and they turn it over and kick for touch.
34.00: The Referee's Assistant comes in to report something so the TMO has a look for foul play. There is nothing in it so the game resumes.
36.00: The Brumbies are keeping the Force pinned back in their half. The Force keep kicking the ball away but this allows the Brumbies to keep pushing them back. Mogg kicks deep and Dellit takes the mark but doesn't find touch. Mogg kicks back and finds touch.
38.00: The Brumbies continue to attack the Force in their half. George Smith's pass to Speight is high and awkward but he controls it and scores his second try. Bonus point TRY! The TMO says all is good.
39.00: Lealiifano adds the conversion as further replays show Speight possibly lost the ball before dotting it down.
40.00: It's half time.
The half time score was Brumbies 29 W.Force 0
40.00: Thee Force kick off and we are underway.
42.00: The Force get some early territory in the Brumbies 22. They continue to drive forward as the Brumbies can only defend.
43.00: Penalty to the Force. They take it quickly and the Brumbies infringe. The Force can't get through and they lose the ball but get called back for another penalty. A fight breaks out so we will have to have a look. Stephen Moore is sent to the bin for synical play.
44.00: The Force choose the scrum for the penalty. Initially it has to be reset.
45.00: The Force complete the scrum and then Alby Mathewson takes his eye off the ball and knocks on.
46.00: The Brumbies then win a penalty from the scrum and they kick for touch.
48.00: The Force have another line out and again Heath Tessman's throw is not straight.
50.00: The Brumbies have the ball and Matt Toomua gets a great pass Sonny Bill style away to Joe Tomane who goes in to score for the Brumbies TRY! That was with a man in the bin.
51.00: Lealiifano nails the conversion from the touchline.
53.00: The Brumbies go to the bench. They bring four players on all at once.
58.00: The Force win a penalty for George Smith not supporting his body weight. They kick for touch and then use the driving maul.
61.00: The match has slowed to a grind. The Force are edging forward and the pressure pays off as they win a penalty. Robbie Coleman comes on for Jesse Mogg. The Force again choose the scrum.
63.00: The Force just can't get through the Brumbies defence. No matter what they do.
64.00: The Brumbies move the ball into the Force's half. The Brumbies look like they will score again but Ruaidhri Murphy knocks on.
65.00: George Smith comes off for the Brumbies after equalling George Gregan's cap record.
66.00: The Brumbies have the ball in the Force's 22. The Force turn the ball over and kick for touch.
68.00: The Brumbies continue to attack and Pat McCabe puts Siliva Siliva away for the Brumbies sixth TRY!
69.00; Christian Lealiifano takes the conversion hits the post with the conversion.
72.00: Winston Stanley who has just come on two minutes ago goes off again with a shoulder injury. It's is just not the Force's night.
The Force finally get some points as they get a driving maul 5m out from the Brumbies tryline. Matt Hodgson drives over and scores. TRY!
74.00: Jayden Hayward adds the conversion for the Force.
78.00: The Brumbies are winding the clock down.
