Brumbies baffle Bulls with weirdo backline

By 17 April, 2009 3

Foxsports is across the bizarre backline the Brumbies have been saddled with, following a spate of injuries.

    Injuries to fullback Mark Gerrard (hamstring) and winger Alfi Mafi (groin) saw coach Andy Friend ask Mortlock to hand over his outside centre role to Tyrone Smith, while Gene Fairbanks will start at inside centre.

    And Wallabies fullback Adam Ashley-Cooper will in the Brumbies’ No.15 jersey for the first time this season.

Considering the lack of cohesion in the backs this season can things really get any worse?

On the other hand without Gerrard’s boot turning the big Bulls around we’re really going to have to find a way through the line.

I think the 3.5 start the TAB is giving the Bulls is rather generous.

Not that generous, The Bulls are only half a team without Matfield.

Gerrard being out is a big blow…he’s been our form player all season (I’d go as far as the form Australian player)….otherwise I think the moves won’t be too disruptive. Fairbanks & Smith will make a good centre pairing. Talk of Gerrard moving o/s is a worry.
