The Brumbies have ruined the Western Force's long-awaited homecoming by securing a 27-11 Super Rugby Australia win in Perth last night.
Rugby.com.au reports it had been 1,316 days since Western Force had last played a Super Rugby game in Perth.
Tries from Brumbies flyhalf Noah Lolesio, inside centre Irae Simone, and replacement Issak Fines-Leleiwasa set up a match-winning 27-6 lead in last night's opener.
The Force scored a late try to deny the Brumbies a bonus point.
Tevita Kuridrani made his debut for Western Force at outside centre last night.
