Victory for Brumbies

Aap
Sunday, April 06, 2014

CANBERRA - A barnstorming double from comeback king Pat McCabe has helped lift the Brumbies to a 26-9 Super Rugby win over the Auckland Blues in Canberra.

Man-of-the-match McCabe was superb for the Brumbies in treacherously wet conditions at Canberra Stadium, making several breaks and constantly bending the defensive line.

It was the 26-year-old Test centre's best performance since breaking his neck for the second time in June last year.

Fullback Jesse Mogg meanwhile kept the Blues pinned down in their own half for most the match with his booming left boot.

While the Brumbies scored three tries, their defence was equally superb against a try-less Blues outfit that had previously averaged more than 30 points a game this year.

The Brumbies were extremely successful at disrupting the Blues' ball at the ruck, with Wallabies forward Scott Fardy the standout over the ball.
