Reds beat Brumbies in Brisbane




The Brumbies will be aiming for back-to-back victories against the Queensland Reds in Super Rugby for the first time since August 2020, following their 16-12 win in their most recent meeting (18 March 2022).

The Queensland Reds have won their last six Super Rugby home matches on the bounce against the Brumbies, after winning only two of all their 12 previous meetings (D1,L9).

  • The Brumbies have won their last six Super Rugby matches on the trot; the last time they enjoyed a longer winning run in the competition, was a seven-match span from February to August in 2020.
  • The Reds have won their last 12 Super Rugby home matches against fellow Australian teams, their longest winning run in such fixtures; their last defeat at home in an Australian derby was a 40-32 loss to the NSW Waratahs (18 May 2019).
  • Only the Crusaders (23) have retained possession on more kicks in play than the Brumbies (21) and Queensland (17) in the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season.

1.00: PEEEP! We are underway in Brisbane, Queensland.

4.00: The atmosphere is electric as this modern-day Australian rivalry grows in intencity, especially after Queensland’s thrilling 19-16 Super Rugby AU final win vesrus the Brumbies at Suncorp Stadium last season.

7.00: a lot of reset scrums in Aussie derbies, something that has been a blight on the game down under.

9.00: Some big hits so far: Filipo Daugunu on Andy Muirhead and Jordan Petaia on Jesse Mogg

12.00: A big scrum leads to a Reds penalty. James O’Connor sends the ball to the corner, but the Brumbies hold off the attack thanks to Darcy Swain’s intervention causes a knock-on.

36.00: Brumbies kick to the corner, they always do, but with the extra player, expect tries.
