The Highlanders have defeated the Australian conference winning Brumbies 15-9 in Canberra to advance to the semi finals and are now one step closer to back to back titles after winning their maiden Super Rugby title last year. This was the first time since 2006 that the Highlanders have won in Canberra.
The Highlanders scored two tries to none in wet and windy conditions with Waisake Naholo and Liam Squire dotting down while Sopoaga kicked a conversion and a penalty.
The Brumbies had to make do with three penalties from the boot of Christian Lealiifano.
