Brumbies coach Jake White says that everything the Brumbies spoke about before their match against the Blues "went out of the window".
The Blues gave the Brumbies their third loss of the season when they won 16-30 in Canberra and sent the ACT men into a nervous wait to find out if their season has ended.
Brumbies flanker Peter Kimlin won man of the match for the home side but coach Jake White was left disappointed with the result. .
Further compounding the loss for Head Coach Jake White were injury concerns to Joe Tomane and Dan Palmer, who both left the field and will have medical assessments by Monday.
"We went away from the plan as they kicked off," said White after the game.
"We gave them 14 points in 11 minutes."
"Everything we spoke about regarding us starting well and keeping them out of the game went out the window," White said.
"We didn't build pressure, we didn't keep the tempo up and it was evident we let ourselves down in that first 20 minutes.
"All credit to the Blues. They got on a role bashing us in tackles and at the breakdown. "
"It's not an ideal situation, now we've got to look and see what happens in the rest of the games this weekend."
The Brumbies needed the Waratahs to beat the Reds in order for them to stay alive for another week at least. Unfortunately the Reds beat the Waratahs with a bonus point.
