The ACT Brumbies are leading the competition.
The ACT Brumbies have secured their position at the forefront of the Super 15 ladder with a 29-10 demolition of the Coastal Sharks at Kings Park Stadium, reports Fox Sports.
Having won all four games of the season the Brumbies are 6 points clear of New Zealand’s second placed Chiefs. The win also seals the Brumbies 7th consecutive away win, the longest record in Super Rugby history.
The Queensland Reds are the nearest placed team in the Australian Conference trailing by a full ten point margin.
Under new coach Jack White the Brumbies have looked an unstoppable force this season, and against the Sharks they wasted no time dominating the match, earning the 4-point bonus by the end of the first half.
Brumbies No.8 Fotu Auelua was the man of the match, setting up the first two tries with his direct running, drawing in defenders and opening up the line for his team-mates.
Coach White was full of praise for Auelua and flyhalf Matt Toomua whose damaging runs in attack opened up the Sharks defence.
“Fotu led from the front and worked hard to get us over the advantage line,” White said.
“One thing I enjoy about Matt Toomua is his ability to take the ball to the line and keep defenders honest to create space out wide.”
Even losing halfback Nic White to a head knock in the first half was not enough to derail the Brumbies as replacement Ian Prior stepped up to guide the attack.
