Sure, they’re only trials, but the teams this week are looking pretty full strength and as such they provide a few interesting match ups that Antipodeans will undoubtedly be watching.
Here are a few that have caught my eye from the Tahs vs Brumbies match at the SFS this Thursday:
- The front rows. All Wallabies. Baxter, Robinson and Moore are in the chair, but can Alexander and Henderson stake a claim?
- Battle of the back-rows. The Tahs are looking underdone with Palu sitting this one out. Can anyone stick in the no. 6 roundabout?
- Half-back. Good reports on Holmes’ last outing. Can he push Burgess who’ll no doubt get a run off the bench?
- Mid-field. The new Brumbies power house pairing takes on the young Tahs. Can they handle it? Will Tahu’s hammy survive?
Which ones would you be watching (if you could see it)? Teams below.
