    What happens to Kuenzle? Pasitoa has seemingly leapfrogged him..

    Bayley I believe was one of the mumps victims. Might not yet be fit enough to be considered.

    I love that Dan is thoughtfully rotating through his squad, something Gibson could have learned from. A great chance to keep building combinations which should see them well into the season.

    I really don't know how to evaluate the Sunwolves. Sprinkled with some real talent but in those last two games (Reds/Canes) their defence looked like swiss cheese. As long as the Brumbies don't do something dumb this should be theirs to win.

    Dan's squad rotation and management has been one of the most impressive elements of his coaching since taking the HC role.

    It's one of the reasons why so many players this year have been able to step up after so many big departures.

    I would guess that the Brumbies used close to more players than any other SR team in 2019, and will be on track to do so again in 2020

    Miller in for the second, Lonergan converts.

    Neville having a blinder so far, 40 run metres from 6 runs so far

    Think Brumbies are trying to stick to their structures too much, fucking let it sing, holes everywhere

    Brumbies attack looks really good, they just need to stay patient. Discipline at the ruck is an issue as so many players are going hard at the ball. Might need to back off a little as Anselmi is enforcing it pretty tightly.

    The 9-10 combo is working well, and Lolesio is managing the game as well as could be expected. He's a smart footballer.

    Pulu for first try was good - so much depth for good wing options at the brumbies.

    Was tempted to travel down for double header but unfortunately had something on

    That touchies positioning is so fucking poor, not the first time she’s been caught in a totally useless position either

    Good link play by Simone for the try - pulu lucky to be awarded the try as thought shoulder out as grounded the ball but yes video replay hard to confirm 100%

    That was the most obvious penalty try of all time before Pulu's try.

    Ponies are running amok! It's been said a bunch of times but Lolesio looks like a real gem. Helps being behind a rampaging pack but his passing game is sublime

    Yeah not going to say too much as the Sunwolves arent they greatest but doing what we should be doing against them and putting them away.
