11:41
[Comment From Stu ]
G’day Folks
11:42
Stu:  What’s the take with Phibbs and Holmes? Anyone rate Holmes higher?
11:42
chriscullen:  i just heard john mitchell say the force are a chance of finals
11:42
Gagger:  Blues kick off. Brumbies get a FK, put a bomb up that the Blues run back 50m. Brumbies give away penalty
11:42
Twitter s14liveupdates:  #blues have a penalty and opt for a shot at goal.
11:42
Gagger:  Kicking the ball down the throats of the blues might not be a good idea…..
11:43
Gagger:  G’Day all by the way
11:43
[Comment From Epi ]
Really interested to watch Fainifo tonight… He’s been impressing me this year and he is lightning – which is nice.
11:43
[Comment From cyclopath ]
How do, fellas (and any lay-dies)?
11:43
Stu:  It was Fainifo that ran down Habana right?
11:43
Epi:  yep..
11:43
Gagger:  Gopperth slots 0-3
11:44
Naly D:  Force are my outside chance to make op 4, but Brumbies are still realistic
11:44
Twitter s14liveupdates:  penalty kick successful. So the #blues are first on the scoreboard. #brumbies 0 #blues 3 after 3:09
11:44
cyclopath:  I noticed Marto reckoned the Ponies lose nothing with Edmonds in for Moore. Perhaps a little optimistic.
11:44
Gagger:  Yeah, smart commenting Marto
11:45
Gagger:  Shove him in the Wallabies then why not?
11:45
Gagger:  Brumbies scrum on half way. Blues flooding the breakdown
11:45
cyclopath:  Here we go, obligatory Aussie scrum committee meeting before setting…
11:46
cyclopath:  Well I guess Edmonds is quick – got back in cover well
11:46
Gagger:  Phibbs kicks it to the Blues and they run it back 60m. Just shepherded into touch on 22
11:46
Gagger:  Blues nick the lineout
11:46
Twitter s14liveupdates:  #blues scrambling from inside their own 22. Nice break and the #blues are finally dragged into touch just outside the #brumbies 22
11:47
Gagger:  Blues cant believe how easy this is
11:47
Twitter s14liveupdates:  #blues now have the ball and are inside the #brumbies 20m.
11:47
Twitter s14liveupdates:  #blues are forced into touch again just 10m outside the #brumbies line
11:47
cyclopath:  The rush defence could be a worry with the Blues outside backs if they get it wrong
11:48
Twitter s14liveupdates:  #brumbies have the ball just inside #blues territory. Nice run from Ashley-Cooper from the line out on the #brumbies 10m
11:49
cyclopath:  So explain to me, when the half just looks at it for 10 secs before clearing, working out the play, why throw a slow pass to the man stand flat-footed 1 foot from the defensive line? Then again, I’m no coach
11:49
Gagger:  AAC makes a break out of the bumbies 22, runs out of support and kicks it. BLues run it bac but knock on
11:49
Gagger:  You got me cyclo
11:49
Epi:  cyclo – I’m not sure either. Is is to try and attract more defenders to the ruck??
11:51
Gagger:  Blues reycling in Brumbies half but eventually pushed into touch
11:51
cyclopath:  Dumb rush up by Morty, but he covered it up well
11:51
Gagger:  That’s all Morty can do in D!
11:51
Gagger:  Is Phibbs doing sabotage?
11:51
Naly D:  It’ll be to suck the backs into the ruck so the Brumbies backs are only facing forwards
11:52
Twitter s14liveupdates:  #brumbies with the ball inside their own 22.
11:52
Gagger:  Matt goddard is hilarious to listen to

11:57

11:57
Gagger:  Toomua drop goals. It’s 3-3
11:58
Epi:  i dont care what anyone says – i think thats smart.

[Comment From Juan Cote ]
The blues started with their usual bluster but now the Brumbies are looking the goods
11:59
cyclopath:  Gopperth should drop kick it – he has the range:)
12:00

Gagger:  slipped over. funny
12:01
Gagger:  Who told the Brumbies it was fucken touch rugby!
12:01
cyclopath:  Nice attempt at tackle from Hard-man Hoiles
12:02
Naly D:  But not the accuracy or ability
12:02
cyclopath:  Not the anything really
12:02
Gagger:  What is Goddard doing?
12:03
cyclopath:  Grating, as usual
12:03
Gagger:  Toomua puts a bomb up that comes down on the Blues 22. Brumbies get a mystery penalty. Morty to shoot. 9 off record points scorer in S14 ever
12:03
Gagger:  Make that 6 points. 6-3
12:04
Naly D:  Fuck my comments take forever to come through
12:04

12:09
Gagger:  Goddard finds a penalty again, this time against Alexander.

12:09
Gagger:  Wrong
12:09
Gagger:  Gopperth misses
12:09
Epi:  Goddard! what a fuckwit.
12:10
Epi:  Try Blues!
12:10
Gagger:  Toeava walks through the Brumbies D and Gopperth finishes off a 75m try
12:11
Epi:  Brumbies defence looking flimsy tonight to say the least.
12:11
Gagger:  Fucking scary
12:11
cyclopath:  Maybe they’ll work out now that going in high on Ice is rather a waste of time
12:11

12:12
Gagger:  Blues with penalty from Kick Off. Scrum on brumbies 45m
12:12
Gagger:  Smith steals
12:13
Gagger:  Phibbs kicks. Bounces perfectly for the Blues. Close to scoring again. INstead drill it into touch
12:14
Gagger:  So you think maybe ice the bomb tactic?
12:14
Epi:  hoping the brumbies win but did anyone just see that blatant knock on in front of Goddard. He is blind as a bat.
12:14
cyclopath:  And squeakier
12:15
Gagger:  Blues with ball on 50
12:15
Gagger:  Nice hit from Ben
12:16

12:21
Epi:  ‘dont go down on him’ nice one goddard..
12:22
Gagger:  Brumbies butcher a backline move. Blues almost break away but then do the same by passing into touch
12:22
Gagger:  Brumbies LO on blues 35
12:23
[Comment From Guest ]
Is Phil Kearns making up words again?
12:23
[Comment From Blue ]
Evenin’ ladies
12:24
cyclopath:  Kearns is talking shit, so yes.
12:24
Gagger:  Blues have FK on 30m but belt it into touch as its half time
12:24
Gagger:  Evening Blue
12:24
[Comment From Harfish ]
What does Goddard need to do to get dropped from the top referee panel?
12:25
Gagger:  Fucking good question Harfish
12:25
Blue:  Don’t know if there is much more he can do
12:26
Blue:  perfect result that earlier match
12:26
Blue:  Chiefs win. No bonus points
12:26
Epi:  gotta go.. are we covering the tahs game?

12:27
Gagger:  OK, will send you guys link
12:27
Blue:  I’ll be here calling cyclopath names :)
12:28
Epi:  cool. laters guys.
12:28
Gagger:  HALF TIME – Game hasn’t really ignited. Blues are wondering if the Brumbies are trying to give the match away with some pretty braindead kicking to the Blues backs. Some soft Brumbies defence not helping in thie regard either.


Basically Brumbies need to Harden the fuck up and keep some ball in hand

12:29
Blue:  having some serious ADSL issues though so provided the damn connection is up I’ll be around
12:29
Gagger:  Ciao Epi.


Good point about the BPs Blue

12:29
Blue:  yeah works well for the Bulls, Sharks and Tahs
12:30
Gagger:  Fark, Brumbies have missed 19 tackles already. Even the Blues have only missed 9
12:30
Blue:  I was trying to figure out iof th defense was good or whgether the attacking wasnlt that flash
12:31
Blue:  bit of both I guess but neither the Chiefs or Canes looked that flash tonight
12:31
Gagger:  Toeava is class but it was too easy
12:32
Gagger:  Brumbies haven’t turned up. I wonder if they miss Morty’s leadership from the centre of the field…..??
12:32
Blue:  I still cant figure out why he is on the wing
12:33
Blue:  issues between him and Friend??
12:35
Gagger:  Friend agrees they were kicking like twats
12:35
Gagger:  Brumbies with ball on Blues 22
12:36
Gagger:  Blues knock on so Brumbies with scrum on 22
12:37
Gagger:  Scrum collapse. Amazed Trisha didn’t ping someone
12:37
Harfish:  Must be a try
12:38
Gagger:  Phibbs goes for a run and gives it to Morty on inside ball. Pops to Hoiles who takes 5 blues with him. TMO try?
12:39
Gagger:  TMO cant see it so 5m scrum
12:40
Harfish:  Brumbies drive forward from the scrum, move it right and Mortlock scores in the corner
12:40
Gagger:  TRY!
12:40
Gagger:  Bad D from Smokin JO
12:41
Harfish:  That conversion make Mortlock the highest scoring Aussie in Super Rugby
12:41
Gagger:  Mortlock puts it in off the posts and is now ALL TIME LEADING POINT SCORER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD AND SUPER 14
12:43
Gagger:  Blues with ball on 30m but then knock on
12:43
cyclopath:  Obviously the “you guys are playing like dickheads” talk at half-time worked.
12:44
Gagger:  Spot on. Talk 1(a) from the handbook
12:44
Gagger:  Kimlin gets isolated. Blues FK taken quickly
12:45
Gagger:  Brumbies now recycling in Blues 22
12:46
Gagger:  YELLOW!!
12:46
cyclopath:  Gotta be a scrum – YEEERRRRSSS!!!
12:47
Harfish:  Was that a warning from Goddard? Or just some piss poor discouragement to stop cheating?
12:47
Gagger:  Brumbies nice phases. On Blues 5m with FK scrum
12:47
Harfish:  Brumbies last 5m scrum almost got a pushover and was under advantage for collapsing
12:47
Harfish:  TRY!
12:48
cyclopath:  Blues mullered at scrum. Proves the importance of good locks – which they don’t have tonight.
12:48
Gagger:  Backline move even fooled the camera man
12:48
Harfish:  Great scrum move from Brumbies with Fairbanks coming on inside as a dummy runner
12:49
Gagger:  Try to Faiinifo 20-10 52nd min
12:49
Gagger:  Morty on 994 points
12:49

Gagger:  Steady on Cyclo
12:50
cyclopath:  call him “The Mort”
12:50
Gagger:  Blues cracking under pressure
12:51
Gagger:  Fairbanks always falls over
12:51
cyclopath:  Even Phibbs falls over – but scores!!
12:52

12:52
Blue:  great rugby this
12:52
Gagger:  Sure fucken is. You should take up caoching cyclo
12:52
Harfish:  Did Andy Friend break out the old Griz Wylie halftime speech?
12:52
Harfish:  “This is the fucking ball! Do something with it!”
12:53
cyclopath:  Hope the Tahs are watching – this is how to do it.
12:53
Gagger:  Morty hits upright and off 25-10 57th Min
12:54
Gagger:  What special coating does Toeava have on him?
12:55
Harfish:  If Rokocoko makes the All Blacks, I will personally assassinate Graham Henry
12:55
Gagger:  Get your gun ready!
12:55
Gagger:  MORTY!!
12:56
Gagger:  WHAT A FUCKEN HIT!
12:56
Harfish:  Woodcock still down
12:56
Gagger:  TRY YOU FUCKEN BEAUTY
12:58

12:58
cyclopath:  Mortlock’s Super points outnumber his brain cells now
12:59
Gagger:  32-10 Brumbes after 61
12:59
Gagger:  Try to Blues!
12:59

1:00
Gagger:  Gopperth misses


32-15 62nd Min

1:01
Harfish:  This grubber kick shit is catching
1:01
Gagger:  Fucking waste of time. Lowest % play there is
1:01
Harfish:  Brett last night, Nonu and Toomua tonight
1:02
Gagger:  Blues have penalty on Brumbies 45. Blues LO on brumbies 22
1:03
Gagger:  Gopperth goes through the middle but next man puts it down
1:03
Gagger:  Blues screw Brumbies scrum through 90 and get the feed 10m out
1:04
Gagger:  I should say that Morty also went off the field after his hit on Woodcock
1:05
Gagger:  Blues have the ball on the 50
1:05
Gagger:  Blues leave the ball out the back of a ruck but Hoiles knocks it on
1:05
Gagger:  Moorty looks to be in lala land
1:06
Gagger:  Smokin Jo is away but touchie fucks up a fwd pass call
1:07
Harfish:  wtf is wrong with aussie refs?
1:07
Gagger:  Apart from being shit?
1:07
Harfish:  That’s one of the worst decisions I’ve seen all year
1:07
Harfish:  Dickinson’s alright, but nothing makes up for Goddard and Marks
1:08
Gagger:  You’ve forgotten about Leckie!
1:08
Harfish:  Must have blocked him out
1:08
Gagger:  Brumbies get FK and take scrum on Blues 35
1:10
Gagger:  Toomua makes another nice run from 10.
1:10
Gagger:  G Smith kicks AGAIN in goal. 22

Gagger:  Brumbies recycling on the line. Smith puts an inside ball to Timani and its a TRY!!
1:15
Harfish:  Can the Brumbies beat the Chiefs next week on this form?
1:16
Gagger:  A very big ask. But if they can harden up in defence….
1:16
Gagger:  And if they get Gerrard back….
1:16
Gagger:  Toomua fucks the conversion and its 37-17 after 76
1:18
[Comment From chriscullen ]
probably have to win and get bonus point next week
1:18
Gagger:  Easy
1:18
Gagger:  Penalty to the Blues but too late
1:23
Gagger:  Blues bomb a final try and its all over! Brumbies win with the all important bonus point.
1:25
Gagger:  The ponies played like the Tahs in the first half (without the D) and the Brumbies of old in the second; kept the ball in hand and with great pace.


Morty stepped up to the mark, Toomua and Fairbanks sharp in the middle. The pigs were great in the Scrum and powerfull when in the Blues red zone.

A great win to keep their hopes alive

1:27
Juan Cote:  Toomua played a great game
1:27
Gagger:  FULL TIME BRUMBIES 37 – BLUES 15
1:28
Gagger:  Sure did JC. You staying up for Tahs?
1:29
Juan Cote:  Yes mate….
1:30
Gagger:  OK, just about to set up live score for it, see you over there
