The fourth date of the Australian Super Rugby began with an entertaining duel between Waratahs and Rebels. On Saturday Brumbies gave Western Force no chance.
WESTERN FORCE 0-24 BRUMBIES (Saturday)
It took Canberra’s team 90 seconds to score the first try to make it clear to the local how the game was going to be. The opening of the scoreboard was in charge of Tom Wright, but the most eye-catching came four minutes later, with a spectacular maneuver of the visit that left the bottom in pure luxury for the try by Irae Simone. The rain did not help the show, which focused more on the forwards game and in the second half Will Miller and Connal McInerney gave the game final figures.
WARATAHS 10-29 REBELS (Friday)
The Melbourne team added their first victory in the Super Rugby aussie by prevailing in Sydney in a game without much brilliance against a Waratahs that fails to find the return to the tournament. Toomua was the hero of the day, he scored 19 points with his foot (five penalties and two conversions). While the away team’s tries were Ryan Louwrens (38 ‘) and Marika Koroibete (78’), the latter completed 50 matches in Super Rugby. On the homeowner’s side, Alex Newsome (7 ‘) was the author of the only conquest and Will Harrison added five goals (a penalty and a conversion).
