‘Miracle’ Reds comeback stuns Brumbies


With time nearly up, Jordan Petaia has scored a try off a Hunter Paisami grubber kick and James O’Connor has kicked the conversion to give the Reds a 40-38 win.

The Brumbies led 17-0 and then 31-16 at different stages.

“What handling from Jordan Petaia,” Wallabies and Queensland legend Tim Horan says in commentary for Nine and Stan Sport.

“What a match. How brave that was from Hunter Paisami.”

It’s the first Reds win in Canberra since 2014 and revenge for last year’s Super Rugby AU grand final.

A terrific advertisement for Australian rugby between the nation’s best two teams.

“It’s an instant classic and the miracle comeback is complete,” Nine and Stan Sport caller Sean Maloney says.
