Brumbies bid to slow down Super Hurricanes

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 18/04/2017 Matt Coughlan

The Brumbies are focusing on a smarter defensive performance against the Hurricanes as they try to stop New Zealand's Super Rugby domination of Australian teams.

Australian sides are winless in 12 attempts against Kiwi opposition this season, with the Brumbies forced to turn things around quickly for Friday night's match in Napier after a shock defeat to the Melbourne Rebels last week.

Brumbies co-captain Sam Carter said the side had concentrated on shutting down the Hurricanes' offload channels as they look to counter a high-tempo attack.
