The Queensland Reds withstood a late Hurricanes onslaught to win 18-12 in their Super Rugby clash in Brisbane.
The Reds scored two tries to none, while the Hurricanes missed a number of kickable penalties and had a late try overturned by the video referee.
The Reds now have two wins from three matches, while the Hurricanes have lost both of their games and meet the Crusaders at home in Wellington next weekend.
The Hurricanes captain Conrad Smith says he felt they had the game there and for one reason or another they couldn't get the points.
Smith says he never felt that they would lose that game.
