The seven-try win extends the Brumbies conference lead over the chasing Rebels and Reds to 10 points, while the loss continues a miserable season for the Waratahs, with just one win from six rounds. It is the second successive week theyve had a second half fadeout. Wallabies prop Alaalatoa suffered a suspected broken arm midway through the first half with the match being a war of attrition for both teams. Hes gone for an x-ray but if I was a betting man Id say theres a fracture in there, said Brumbies coach Dan McKellar. The Brumbies also lost lock Murray Douglas midway through the first half to concussion and try-scoring winger Solomone Kata to a leg injury. The Waratahs suffered their own injury troubles with Wallabies back Kurtley Beale forced off shortly after halftime with a hamstring injury after trying to stop a Joe Powell try. Centre Karmichael Hunt followed him soon after with a calf issue. The Waratahs only trailed 21-14 at halftime but with two of their attacking weapons sidelined for most of the second half, they didnt have the resources to peg back the classy Brumbies. A lopsided 12-7 penalty count and yellow card to flanker Jack Dempsey didnt help, with the Brumbies extending their lead in his absence. Waratahs coach Rob Penney said he thought it was an improved performance on last round but it wasnt pleasant.
