10.00: The Brumbies have suddenly upped the pace and pressure and the drive for the line and score. TRY to Ruaidhri Murphy.
12.00: Christian Lealiifano takes the conversion and misses amid plenty of boos from the crowd. Interestingly when the Lions kick for posts the stadium play a sound clip which counts to three in Afrikaans and gets the crowd to "Ssshhhhhh" but when the Brumbies kick they don't play it
- thats what home advantage is all about.
