  • Stin

    Isn’t Horne on the bench Shane?

    • Sully

      Fixed! Thank you.

  • Straith

    Dunno why you would post a team list article when you are missing 7 team lists…

    • Sully

      I do it every week Straith. I’ll update it as they come out.

  • Whiggety

    Now we’ll finally see if the Brumbies are the real deal, or if all the Oz sides are just pissweak this year!

  • Luke_Baird

    Andre Taylor listed twice Sully :)

    • Sully

      He’s so good I had to put him in twice!

  • Benny A’s Tackle

    The Brumbies side raises a few eyebrows. Not surprised to see Fotu get a run on, after what he did to the Lions at altitude last year it’s obvious South African food makes him angry. I knew White/Larkham had to rotate the wingers, Tomane was too good not get his share of starts. Sio and Kuridrani more surprising, but Sio was a bee’s wang away from scoring under the post v Tahs and scrummaged well; and from the little I’ve seen of Tevita he has impressed each time. Would have thought Fardy deserved the run on with Carter on the pine after Sam’s yellow card effort last week. And with Robbie Coleman still on the bench you can tell that the Brumbies have real depth, even after Poey’s dagger through the his knee/my heart.

    Will Fotu stay at 8 for the big packs from the Republic?
    How many points if enough from these next 3 games?

    • Pedro

      Kuridrani is money, he would start in plenty of teams, not sure but A. Smith might be injured too.

      Fardy has played every minute so far so I assume he’s just being “rotated”. He’ll get plenty of time with kimlin already at lock, no extra jumpers.
