Highlanders beat Brumbies to book Super Rugby semi-final spot

Defending champions the Highlanders beat the Brumbies 15-9 in the first of the Super Rugby quarter-finals.

It meant Australia will be without a team in the semi-finals for the first time in four years.

Tries from Waisake Naholo and Liam Squire proved decisive for the Highlanders as Lima Sopoaga added a conversion and a penalty while the Brumbies' points came from three penalties by Christian Lealiifano.
