All Blacks star’s ‘heartbreak’ hands Brumbies shock win

The winless Brumbies are back home at GIO Stadium and they will have their work cut out for them as they come up against a desperate Hurricanes’ outfit.

The Hurricanes will not only be chasing a win tonight in Canberra, but they will be hoping to come away with the bonus point as well to stay in touch with the top of the competition.

After this week’s fixture, just one round remains before the June 19 final.

The Brumbies are coming off an 18-point loss to the Blues last week.
