Tim Horan called it the best Super Rugby game in Australia in five years.

And Stan Sport colleague Sean Maloney labelled it "an instant classic."

Morgan Turinui stopped short of calling it the greatest Aussie Super Rugby clash ever but the Queensland Reds' "miracle comeback" against the Brumbies in round four has raised expectations sky high for Saturday's grand final rematch in Brisbane.

To whet the appetite, Stan Sport has cut a "mini match" extended highlights package of the 40-38 thriller and made it available for free viewing on YouTube.

The defending champion Brumbies shot out to a 17-0 lead in just 15 minutes on March 13 in Canberra, with Pete Samu and Folau Fainga'a crossing for early tries.
