July 22, 2016 5:14 pm
Waisake Naholo scored a try to help his Highlanders team beat Brumbies 15-9 in the first quarter final of Super Rugby last night.
The Highlanders hopes of going back-to-back in Super Rugby remain alive – just.
It was a stop-start affair as the whistle and a wet and windy Canberra night subdued a Highlanders team who traditionally like to play the game in fast-forward.
Despite this the Highlanders still outscored the Brumbies two tries to none and fended off a mammoth Brumbies onslaught in the dying stages to cling onto the 15-9 win.
In the second quarter final today, the Hurricanes host the Sharks and you can watch the match live on FBC TV.
In other quarter-finals, the Lions play the Crusaders at 2.30am tomorrow after which the Chiefs play the Stormers at 5am.
