 Key points/Observations:

  • After our first win of the year Kane Douglas has been dropped for Rob Simmons, a controversial decision.
  • Henry Speight comes back from a successful return to 15s via the NRC to replace Drew Mitchell for a probable bench spot.
  • Tom Robertson replaces the injured Allan Alaalatoa and is in line to debut, he is a certainty for the bench due to the requirement of three specialist scrummagers.
  • Western Force players Adam Coleman and Dane Haylett-Petty will get to run on in front of their Super Rugby home crowd.
  • Scott Fardy has again been overlooked for Dean Mumm.
  • Appearance milestones: Kepu & Genia 70 caps, Pocock 60, Mumm 50.
  • Lopeti Timani seems most likely to be the player that misses out on the final 23. He was also the player to be omitted last week.

Brumbies supporter now living in Melbourne. Rugby and Larkham fan ever since he de beered de Beer. Never shy of controversy because when I say it it's cute.
