Highlights - Super Rugby week four

(Reuters) - Highlights from Super Rugby week four matches:


Winger Jack Maddocks scored two tries as the Rebels, who spent almost 20 minutes with 14 men, overcame a 19-3 halftime deficit to beat the Brumbies and maintain their unbeaten record this season.

After Marika Koribete had started the fightback with a 41st-minute try, Rebels scrumhalf Will Genia, who also scored a try, took control of the match in the second half and drove his side around the field.

Rebels lock Adam Coleman and prop Matt Gibbon were both sinbinned late in the first half, with Gibbon’s indiscretion also resulting in a penalty try to the Brumbies and leaving the home side to start the second half with six forwards.

Hooker Folau Fainga’a became the first Brumbies forward to score a try in four consecutive games while Henry Speight and Rob Valetini also crossed for the Canberra-based side.

Beauden Barrett kicked a penalty with time up on the clock to give the Hurricanes victory over the Highlanders in a scrappy and disjointed Super Rugby clash at Wellington Regional Stadium on Friday.

Winger Ben Lam had scored a try that had drawn the home side level at 22-22 while centre Ngani Laumape continued his try-scoring spree, crossing twice to join the three he grabbed last week against the ACT Brumbies.

Aaron Smith, centre Sio Tomkinson and Liam Coltman scored tries for the visitors, with Marty Banks slotting two conversions in tricky swirling winds.
