    Brumbies vs Brutes preview and teams

    So we’re all thinking the Brumbies are destined for the finals now, with the memory of Macka to play for and karma catching up with Botha and Matfield; Bakkies getting 3 weeks, and Victor getting life (another sprog). Add captain Hoiles returning from injury for an extra bonus. And then KAPOW. A...

    ACT Brumbies S14 2009 preview

    The Brumbies have always been flashy, show-ponies to some extent, so it has been rather sad watching the decline from Thoroughbreds to Cart-horses that has taken place in the nation’s capital over the last few years.  Retirements to key personnel and an injury plague of biblical proportions consigned our equine brothers to...

    Hoiles is new Brumbies captain

    It's an interesting choice. It makes sense for Mortlock to pass it on, but I think everyone would have expected George Smith to pick it up. There was a story that Smith didn't particularly want the role long term, having had it last season. I also wonder if there are question marks...

  • What the Lock?

    A few posts back I sprayed a few words about the Seagull – Nathan Sharpe – and it sparked off a bit of conversation. Since then, the crappy news landed that the most promising Wallaby find of 2008 – Big Kev Horwill – won’t be touring the Northern Hemisphere owing to a...

    Wallabies vs France -Second test score & review

    Australia 40 – France 10A stunning man of the match performance for the Wallabies by Matt Giteau against a French side who didn’t want to be there, put a deceitful gloss on this performance. Giteau made the final kick or pass for every one of Australia’s four tries: A perfectly weighted cross...

    Brumbies 29 – Cheetahs 23 Laurie Fisher might not feel quite so happy about it, but the loss of just about every skerrick of experience from the Brumbies backline this year through retirement and injury, is probably one of the best things that could have happened for the distant future of ACT...
