Brumbies silence Hurricanes

BRUMBIES fly half Zack Holmes gave his side a big lift towards the Super Rugby play-offs when he guided them to a 37-25 victory over the Wellington Hurricanes on Friday.

Holmes scored a try and slotted 17 points with the boot as the Brumbies seized their limited opportunities and moved to 44 points on the Super Rugby table.

They lead the Queensland Reds, who play on Saturday, by 13 points in the Australian conference.

"To be honest we haven't looked too much at the Reds just yet," Brumbies skipper Ben Mowen told Grandstand.

"We're aware of them, they performed extremely well against the Chiefs, but we'll go into more detail tomorrow."
