    Look, given the penalty was 10m out and none of them were behind the line, what can you do as an official?

    Will Miller could win any fight, such a scrapper.

    Much more stable performance from the Ponies this week. They outgunned the Chiefs up front so the young guys like Lolesio got an easier ride. Chiefs defence in channels 3 out was abysmal. Didn't need a maul to score tries either, tho I'd like to see a replay of that maul that nearly went over. Looked very sus.

    The pleasing thing was execution of game plan across the board - generally the kicking, passing, running all worked. Set piece had a couple of shakes, but that can be ironed out.

    Nice to see an Aussie team protect a lead and win.
    Reds could learn a thing or two from that performance, maul defence in particular.

    Was not perfect that second half from brumbies but they dug in and fought hard.definitely more switched on closing out the game then last week so showed they learned lessons from last week.

    Keep going brumbies - build on this and don’t make this the highlight of the season

    Yep. Losing Fainga'a was a big loss for the ponies at the set piece (and my fantasy team) They showed that they're not one trick Ponies tonight.

    Very, very good result for the Brumbies. Done what the Crusaders could not.

    Samu played really well, Wallabies back row depth is looking strong

    That was a really impressive performance from Boys. I thought this would be a one sided competition after the Brumbies lost to NZ’s worst team at home, and playing NZ’s top team away. And the first 50 minutes was one sided, just not the way I’d expected. And they showed true guts to hold out for the final 20.

    McKenzie behind a beaten pack is as bad as Beale is these days.

    Actually his decision making - particularly when he had acres of space - was abysmal. So it wasn't just about the team going backwards, necessarily.

    DMac was really gun shy tonight.

    Agree. A lot of crabbing sideways. I wonder if the injury has killed some of his pace and carefree attitude. Be a shame as he's still really young.

    Was such a fun player to watch last year.

    He played pretty well last week, a crabber never looks good against a defensive line as connected as the Brumbies were.

    Happy to get my tip wrong for that game.

    Having Simone back with Lolesio helped immensely and you could see Lolesio with more confidence as he attacked the line and allowed Simone to attract defenders and allow the offloads that happened - 11 in total. Good to see Kuridrani remind those suggesting others for the 13 spot that he can't be discounted and that cheeky grubber was good too.

    I thought the ref went a bit quiet in his communication that saw the Chiefs get all those penalties at the end and almost saw the Brumbies unable to compete at the breakdown in fear of getting penalised without warning. Same for Slipper's card as he went straight for a card when others would have given a warning first and I've seen that episode before when it all goes to shit but they held on for a great win.
