ROUND 7 - AWAY

St.George Queensland Reds lose to Brumbies

The St.George Queensland Reds have gone down 43-10 to the Brumbies in Round 7 of Vodafone Super Rugby in Canberra.

The score was locked at 10-10 at half time, but the Brumbies jumped out of the gates in the second half, with two quick tries stunning the visitors.

The Brumbies scored a further three unanswered tries in the second half to run away with the contest.

“We’re gutted with the result. There was a confidence and composure within the group at half time. We felt we had worked ourselves into a good position to go on and win the game, but those two soft tries really stunned us and put us on the back foot.” - Head coach Nick Stiles
