Where: Bruce Stadium, Canberra
When: Sat 16th Sept 8pm AEST
Referee: John Lacey (IRE)
Assistant Referees: Glen Jackson (NZ), Paul Williams (NZ)
TMO: Ben Skeen (NZ)

 Key points/Observations:

  • Despite Moore being back in the squad he hasn’t been selected in the match day 23.
  • Koroibete looks to make his debut off the bench, with Rona missing out on selection.
  • Arnold has also been dropped from the wallabies team with Simmons starting and Rodda on the bench. Cheika really likes changing his locks.
  • Assigning each player to their 2018 super rugby club (or past if unknown) makes there no QLD Reds in the starting XV.
  • Using the same method for the whole 23 makes it two Reds, two Force, four Brumbies, five Rebels and ten Waratahs.

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.
