Scoop Images: Brumbies/Reds Bruiser

The brutal story of the ACT Brumbies 30-6 Super 12 semi-final victory over the Queensland Reds at Bruce Stadium, in pictures.

The modern-day gladiatorial encounter saw Brumbies centre Stirling Mortlock leave the field with a dislocated shoulder and Reds goal kicker Elton Flatley stretchered off after taking a heavy blow while tackling.

Brumbies flanker Owen Finegan was sin-binned for stomping on the head of Reds hooker Michael Foley, and a five week ban will see him miss the final against the Sharks along with the injured Mortlock, another casualty of Saturday’s hard fought win.
