Chiefs vs Brumbies preview & teams
oh fuck, he's back

oh fuck, he's back

On the face of things the Chiefs are strong favourites for this game; they’ve won 6 out of their last 7 games, including the Canes just last week and are a try scoring machine.

However, if there’s any team to take the Chiefs, its the Brumbies.

There’s only one way for the Brumbies to do this I reckon, and that’s to choke the fuck out of the ball. Don’t let the Chiefs get a sniff. Frustrate the fuckers.

Belt it around the fringes. Rack up triple digit phases. No long range headless ping pong. Into the corners.

All which I think these guys can do.

Fuck though, did Masaga have to come back?
