Hurricanes vs Brumbies in Super Rugby Pacific, second straight victory over New Zealand opposition . Former Wallabies lock Justin Harrison lauded “a telling momentum change” after the Brumbies made it two straight Australian Super Rugby wins over their New Zealand rivals.
The Brumbies turned in a solid team performance to beat the error-riddled Hurricanes 42-25 on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Canberra.
It kept the heat on the table-topping Blues after 11 rounds, with the 9-1 Brumbies just one point off the pace in second.
And just as importantly it kept the good vibes flowing in the Aussie game, a day after the $15 longshot Waratahs produced a monumental 24-21 upset of the Crusaders in Sydney.
Australian teams went 2-2 against their Kiwi opponents across the weekend, with the Reds and Force losing by only two and four points respectively.
“Fantastic to see uncertainty of result,” former Brumbies star Harrison said on Stan Sport.
After two rounds of crossover matches, Australian sides have already won more trans-Tasman games (three) than they did over the entire 2021 season (a miserable 2-24).
The last four Hurricanes losses on Australian soil have all come in Canberra.
“It’s nice for a change isn’t it?” Brumbies coach Dan McKellar said.
“We always talk about the New Zealand teams dominating the Australian teams but it’s nice to know. Really pleasing.
