WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- The Sharks held their place atop an increasingly compact Super Rugby table after the weekend's 13th round but again displayed an Achilles heel in losing away from home, taking a consolation bonus point from a 16-9 loss to the ACT Brumbies.

The loss in a rain-soaked match at Canberra left the Sharks in first place, but only a point ahead of resurgent defending champions the Chiefs, who beat the Auckland-based Blues 32-20 to move into second, a further point ahead of the Brumbies. Each of those teams tops their regional conference.

The Perth-based Western Force beat the Cheetahs 23-16 in Bloemfontein to stay in fourth while the Wellington-based Hurricanes and Dunedin-based Highlanders moved into the top six with wins over rivals from other conferences.
