    No shockers for the run on team this Saturday. The slight eyebrow raise comes from the bench where we go back to a 4-3 split. The gnarly Phil Waugh makes way for Marcia Hynes. Captions for shmoo opposite? Team below.

    Seducing Miss Eden Park: 1st Test Preview

    For a Wallaby supporter this is a vicious tease of a match. Standing defiantly is the wily 23 year old Eden Park minx, and laid out like a string of Bacardi Breezers before her is the key to melting this ice maidens defences. It’s only fitting that the French and Italians –...

When you look back on teams of the past and the coaches that have lead the Brumbies, you can almost align a particular culture with each coach....

    Dicking around over: team vs France

    Adam Ashley-Cooper puts JO’C on the bench and Shmoo Mitchell’s back for Hynes in a pretty logical starting 15. The openside division of the team remains strong though with Waugh and Pocock making the bench. Oh, and still no LT or Tim Tam. For full team

    Dingo’s still not dicking around, putting out a full-strength Wallaby side for this test in Canberra. The one unforced change being Rabbit O’Connor coming in for AAC who slides to the bench. AntipoDeans was obviously as impressed as everyone else. The forced change is Mumm in for the injured Hodgson, and Noodles...
