The Highlanders couldn't end their season as they started, and lost to the Reds in Brisbane tonight. As they have done throughout the season, the Highlanders dominated territory and possession, but could not convent this into match-winning points. The Highlanders bid farewell to Jimmy Cowan, who brought up his 100th game for the franchise this season.
