    I think the reason why the Brumbies don't wear suits is because being in canberra they learn to distrust anyone in a suit for fear they may be a politician .

    There is a short clip on the official Super Rugby website.

    If they had the launch on a Friday, everyone could have come in casual. :D

    At least the Brumbies team T-shirt is slightly less embarrassing than the Forces.
    Why don't they all just wear suits, they look much better.

    He is not that short the other are just f&%^^$g tall. At about 5'8 I come up to sharpie's arm pit, so Phil is taller then that.

    Really getting the fans worked up in anticipation with that "launch". Woo hoo. Yeah.

    The 2011 Tahs season guide had Phil Waugh at 176cm. Built like a brickwall more than makes up for it though.

    Two weeks out and there doesn't seem to be much publicity for the launch of the Super Rugby season. Here's hoping it picks up soon.

    But that is a huge structural change in Rugby League, a watershed moment for the code.

    This event is meaningless and has been for years. Just a good photo opportunity and a chance for a big presser with the captains. No-one cares, and nor should they.

    The real season launch is February 24. This event is just to start the ball rolling for that date.
