Brumbies beat the Reds, continue unbeaten super rugby run
Petaia’s attempt followed another strong run from forward Harry Wilson, although the Brumbies quickly reclaimed a 23-12 buffer after hooker Lachie Lonergan snuck over on the back of the dominant forward presence.
The Reds’ No 15 came by again in the final 10 minutes to put them on six points and the Brumbies squandered two chances to put matters out of the doubt, a try from Lolesio recalled at kick-off before he narrowly missed a penalty goal.
Queensland five-eighth James O’Connor changed the game after coming on from the bench and looked like he was the most creative player on the field and his side’s deadliest threat as they unsuccessfully followed the game too late.
To match the intensity of their rivals, the Reds controlled the first 15 minutes of the game through both territory and possession, but fell behind after the Brumbies’ strong pack forced an early penalty.
