Images: Highlanders Put Brumbies To The Sword

Scoop’s man in Canberra Mark Graham was behind the camera for the Highlander’s upset 25-18 defeat of the home side, the Brumbies. The win puts the Highlanders at fourth on the table, and leaves defending champions the Brumbies struggling to make the play-offs after four successive losses.

Meanwhile, a terminal case of the dropsies from Scoop’s great yellow hopes, the Hurricanes, left them out of contention for the semis. Left wing Jonah Lomu spilled the ball with nothing between him and the line, and fullback Christian Cullen fumbled a one handed touchdown attempt, then lost the ball over the line a second time in a scramble on the deck with a Warratahs defender. The Warratahs defeated the Hurricanes 19-13.
