Brumbies won the Super Rugby Australia semi-final against Western Force 21-9 and will face Reds in the definition of the tournament next Saturday from 6.45, Argentina time. Santiago Medrano, Tomás Cubelli and Domingo Miotti, who scored all the points for his team, they were starters in the whole of Perth.
The C teamAnberra was superior from start to finish. Even the result could be higher, because the Brumbies dominated in all the game statistics. He had overwhelming possession and territorial dominance. Force had to bend efforts in defense to stay in the game and he did it through good defensive passages, but also due to errors from the rival who in the last meters was not as fine as in other opportunities.
The tries converted by the Canberra cast were Tom Banks and Tom Wright. It should be noted that Toni Pulu saw the direct red card as a result of a dangerous tackle in the first half and that Miotti saved what seemed like the second try on Wrihgt’s personal account, but after checking with the TMO, the referee could observe that the wing stepped on the line before landing.
With this performance, the defending champion will have the chance to defend his crown next Saturday against Reds, who at the end of the regular season lost his undefeated to Force. It will be the duel between the two best teams in the tournament and a great shame for the Oriental force and all the Argentines who were delighted with the historic performance of a team that entered the playoffs for the first time at the hands of Cubelli, Medrano, Miotti and Tomás Lezana -who missed the last games due to injury-, but who could not against the experience of Brumbies.
