Blistering start sets up Brumbies win over Force

Two early tries set Super Rugby AU leaders the Brumbies on their way to a 24-0 victory over the Western Force on Saturday.

The Force's hopes of claiming a first victory on their return to the competition looked slim when Tom Wright and man of the match Irae Simone crossed for brilliant length-of-the-field scores inside four minutes at Leichhardt Oval.

Will Miller finished superbly to give the Brumbies a third try early in the second half and Connal McInerney ploughed over from the back of a driving maul 14 minutes from time.

Bayley Kuenzle was successful with two conversion attempts as Dan McKellar's side made it three wins out of three to lead the Reds by four points.

The Force are bottom with just one point from their first three matches.
