The Bulls kick off and we are underway for the second half.
42.00: The Bulls have made a much stronger start to the match. They work the ball into the Brumbies half through phase after phase but as Grant Hattingh goes over Nic White appears to have taken the ball off him before he got it down. No try. The Bulls however have a penalty.
42.00: Steyn takes the penalty kick and nails this one.
46.00: Morne Mellett comes on to replace Dean Greyling. The Brumbies have a scrum just inside the Bulls 22.

50.00: The Bulls have been awarded a penalty. Steyn takes the kick and slots it. Penalty count :Brumbies 5 Bulls 6.
52.00: There is almost no atmosphere in the stadium which is most unusual for Loftus. The home crowd must be nervous. Mogg and Steyn have a kicking contest which Steyn wins as Mogg kicks it out on the full.
53.00: The Bulls win their line out and start to build their attack going through the phases in the Brumbies half. The Brumbies have an advantage so Nic White kicks the ball out the Brumbies get a scrum.

62.00: The Bulls possession so far is at 74% for the second half. Brumbies at 26%.
63.00: The Brumbies are not giving up. They run the ball into the Bulls 22 but Tomane is just pushed into touch. Stegmann is down getting some attention. After a break he carries on.
64.00: The Bulls win their line out on the 5m line. However the Brumbies snatch the ball and attack until the Bulls turn it over again and Steyn kicks but its charged down over the dead ball line.
65.00: Jurgen Visser plays the ball - even though he is not on the field and concedes a penalty as he interfered with Jesse Mogg.
67.00: The Brumbies kick for touch but they don't find it and after a short phase of play the Bulls win a penalty. They kick for touch as they want the try.

69.00: The Bulls win another penalty for offside and for the second time they go for the corner.
70.00: The Bulls can't get through the Brumbies defence so they go for a drop goal and miss. This is strange behaviour as they have just turned down the penalties.
