Reds half back and vice-captain Will Genia says he is proud to of their performance after they held on to beat the Brumbies 12-13.
The result was only the second time that the Reds have beaten the Brumbies in Canberra in 11 attempts after they won for the first time in the capital last season.
"We spoke about having plenty of energy and enthusiasm and we had that." said Genia.
"I'm very proud of the effort," he added.
"We go into the bye with a good result and will come out of it with a positive attitude. "
"It was great to get a result tonight," said Genia.
Reds coach Ewen McKenzie said he was relieved with the result as it keeps their title hopes alive until after the June International break at least.
"The win keeps us in the finals hunt," coach Ewen McKenzie said.
"We've now got three games left and a bye while the Brumbies have to play four. "
"We'll continue to go about our business and put pressure on the best we can."
The Reds have a bye next week and then following the June Test window, the Reds will play three more regular season games - against the Rebels in Melbourne and Highlanders and Waratahs at home.
