Brumbies revive Super Rugby campaign with bonus point win

8:51 am on 1 June 2014

The ACT Brumbies put their Super Rugby campaign back on track after a comprehensive 37-10 bonus-point victory over the Melbourne Rebels in an all-Australian clash in Canberra.

The Brumbies were top of the Australian conference before leaving for South Africa earlier this month, but losses to the Cheetahs and the Bulls dropped last year's runners-up out of the top six.

First-five Matt Toomua ran in two tries to stake his claim for a Wallabies spot for the upcoming test series against France as the Brumbies bounced back with a six-try to one victory.

The Brumbies are now second in the Australian conference behind the NSW Waratahs and fourth in the overall standings.
