The most exciting Super Rugby Final ever? - Brumbies v Crusaders 2004

The Brumbies captured their second Super 12 title with a stunning 47-38 win against the Crusaders in Canberra back in 2004.

The 13-try thriller was the biggest aggregate score in a Super 12 final, at the time and the win was set up by a five-try opening blitz that blew the Brumbies out to a 33-0 lead after 20 minutes.


The Crusaders staged a brilliant comeback to reduce the lead to 40-28 with 10 minutes remaining, but a try to fullback Joe Roff in the 72nd minute ensured a Brumbies title.

Watch the full clash:


Brumbies 47 -  Tries: Gerrard 3, Roff 2, Paul, Giteau Conversions: Roff 6.

Crusaders 38 - Tries: McCaw, Mauger, Thorn, King, Laulala, Carter Conversions: Carter 4.
