    Chiefs vs Brumbies preview & teams

    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...

    Video: Mortlock splits Woodcock

    From the Brumbies vs Blues on the weekend. This, together with his overall performance proves that you write Captain Insano off to your peril. I’ve also stuck Morty’s hit on Flutey in for good measure

    S14 stat attack: Aussie players

    We let our stat gimp loose on the teams and he couldn’t stop himself delving into the individual players as well. So here they all are. For the most part they reinforce what you might already suspect, but there are a few surprises……..

    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...

    Wallaby Watch – Inside Centre

    INSIDE CENTRE The incumbent(s): Stirling Mortlock (ACT): Gees he surprised me last year. Personally, I’m a fan of the dual playmaker option for 12. Lynagh outside Ella. Pappy outside Lynagh. Kafer/Howard outside Knox. Love it. I didn’t think Morty would offer us anything but crash ball. But I was wrong. He showed...

    Wallaby Team if selected on this weeks form

    15 Mark Gerrard (ACT) – Gerrard must think he has a better chance at socceroo selection this year with some great skills controlling the oval ball. Scored a chip and chase with 4 extra fly-hacks to spark the brumbies back into the game. He then went on to nail a drop goal...

    Another horror show?

    From an Aussie perspective, last weekend’s super 14 was an unmitigated disaster. The Brumbies gave the Lions their 4th ever S14 win and both the Force and Tahs lost at home. Even worse was the error strewn manner in which all three teams gave away their matches. So what about this week?...

    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...
