The Brumbies have won 11 of their last 12 Super Rugby matches against the NSW Waratahs (L1), including their last eight on the bounce – the longest winning run by either side in the history of this fixture.

The Brumbies defeated the NSW Waratahs 61-10 in their most recent Super Rugby meeting at GIO Stadium (Round 2 – Super Rugby AU 2021); the 51-point winning margin is the Brumbies’ biggest in a game against a fellow Australian team, and fourth-largest in a match overall.

1.00: PEEEP! We are underway at wet GIO Stadium, Canberra.

2.00: Nic White’s kick is dropped; this is going to be messy.

4.00: Brumbies win the first scrum penalty, but lose possession after NSW hold the forwards up in a maul.

5.00: TRY! The Brumbies batter the line with pick-and-drives, chipping away at NSW defence before Rob Valetini crashes underneath the blue wall. The attack was 10 phases before the visitors cracked. 5-0

7.00: CONVERSION! Noah Lolesio adds the extras. 7-0

11.00: Harry Johnson-Holmes does not roll away from the ruck, Brumbies penalty in front of the sticks.

13.00: PENALTY! Lolesio increases the lead. 10-0

14.00: NSW finally get some ball, go through the phases before winning a kickable penalty.

15.00: MISS! Ben Donaldson pulls the kick wide. 10-0

17.00: Len Ikitau steals the ball after a high tackle by Jed Holloway. Lolesio boots to the 5m line, but the ball is kept in-field, and cleared. That was poor.

19.00: It’s all Brumbies as they pepper the Waratahs’ defensive wall. A sustained attack ends, however, with the Tahs winning a penalty at the ruck to clear.

21.00: NSW get some more good quality ball, and pin the home team inside their half. The hosts manage to push the visitors back, but they won another dropped high ball to continue a 16-phase attack. Eventually, Nic Berry blows for a couple of offsides against Dan McKellar’s side.

22.00: PENALTY! Donaldson makes no mistake from in front. 10-3

25.00: The Brumbies have had most of the possession (74%) and territory (60%), but the tackle count is almost even. The third scrum penalty in a row goes against the Tahs. Harry Johnson-Holmes is struggling.

27.00: The Brumbies knock-on with the try line at their mercy after another impressive driving maul. The Tahs did well to halt the maul, but were lucky that the Brumbies’ handling is poor.

29.00: The scrums are a mess, the Brumbies have lost three of five, but won three scrum penalties. NSW is struggling but has 100% scrum success, despite being under pressure in the front rows. MAD!

31.00: Izaia Perese’s 35-metre linebreakcomes to nought when Donaldson knocks-on at halfway. Slipper leaves the field for an HIA. Alex Newsome is getting checked by the medics.

32.00: Newsome will go off soon, he can’t play on. Tom Banks boots the ball out into touch on the full, that is poor from Banks.

33.00: PENALTY! Donaldson doubles his side’s score. Charlie Gamble almost scored after a stunning 50-metre break from inside the Tahs’ half, but Banks saaved the day for his team near the goal line. 10-6

35.00: Will Harris gives away a needless penalty for a high tackle.

36.00: TRY! Nick Frost carries Harry Johnson-Holmes and Dave Porecki over the line after a pick-and-drive. Harris’ ill-discipline proved costly. 15-6

38.00: CONVERSION! The kick is good. 17-6

39.00: Frost steals a Tahs’ lineout to set up a counter-attack in midfield. Slipper is back on.

40.00: Nothing comes from the attack after Jake Gordon clears a lost ball. A frentic last 30 seconds sees two more turnovers before White kicks to touch.

The halftime score was Brumbies 17 New South Wales 6

41.00: PEEEP! We are back underway down under.

44.00: Good defending by the Tahs, they hold their ground despite intense pressure on their goal line. Newsome intercepts a stray pass, saving his team.

46.00: Good work by the Tahs to hold up the Brumbies maul again. Scrum NSW.

48.00: TRY! Irae Simone beats three defenders to score under the sticks. The quick-ball from the Brumbies was too much for the defenders as Simone cut inside Lalakai Foketi, Hugh Sinclair, and Tevita Funa for his ninth Super Rugby try. 22-6

50.00: CONVERSION! The kick is good. 24-6

55.00: Waratahs enjoying some good possession at the minute, they are managing to put sustained pressure on the Brumbies; they just need a score.

57.00: A seven-phase attack ends when Donaldson puts Angus Bell away next to the posts. The prop’s angled run could not be stopped. Hope, yet! 24-11

58.00: CONVERSION! The kick is good. 24-13

62.00: It’s all Waratahs. Coleman’s men are almost in for another try, but the Brumbies hold strong.

64.00: Great defending by the home team. Luke Reimer wins the turnover, on his line, and the penalty. Phew!

68.00: Once more, the Brumbies repel the Tahs near the goal line. That’s two good chances squandered in the ‘red zone’.

71.00: Newsome gets pinged near his line for a chop-tackle on Scott Sio.

72.00: PENALTY! Lolesio makes it a two-score game. 27-13

74.00: TRY! Donaldson’s show-and-go sets up Will Harris down the right touchline to cut the gap. 27-18

75.00: CONVERSION! Donaldson slots the sideline kick – game on! 27-20

78.00: Brumbies win a relieving penalty.

81.00: Oh boy, the Tahs win abck possession, and mounted a comeback from their 22.

82.00: Langi Gleeson tries to go down the blindside, but the scrumhalf slips into touch as he is met by defenders, that was poor from him.
