Super Rugby Review Round 17

Brumbies 39-17 Rebels

The Brumbies shorn of their Wallabies obliterated a near full strength Rebels side missing only O'Connor, Beale and Higginbotham. Such was the shear brilliance of the Brumbies performance that they had 9 of the Dream Team players, with Colby Fainga'a getting top marks thanks to a try, 5 tackle busts and 14 tackles.


Force 13- 28 Waratahs

The Force's decision to keep their strongest team for this game didn't work and plenty of accusations will be levelled at them. What's more impressive was the Waratahs with a hugely shallow side performing so well. Drew Mitchell at fullback had a stormer, and Peter Betham was electric on the wing.


Every second week it seems that the chasers close the gap, only for the leader to widen it the following week and it was more of the same, with their now being an 85 point gap at the top. With only 4 teams playing, scoring wasn't high, and no positional changes occurred.

In the head to head league, there was also no positional changes, as Cillian Hogan has a commanding 8 point lead.
