The Brumbies were pushed to the brink by the Queensland Reds before sealing a 28-23 victory in the Super Rugby AU final at Canberra Stadium.
The home side had led 15-13 at half-time and seemed headed for a comfortable victory when they established a 28-13 advantage in the second term.
But the Reds struck back to cut the Brumbies’ lead to five points with 15 minutes remaining on the clock.
The Brumbies, however, found enough fuel in the tank to hold on for the victory and add to their Super 12 triumphs in 2001 and 2004.
More to come.
