The 2008 Super 14 season seems far far away, but Brumbies Rugby reports that the boys are back training for their next games in February. Dirty George looks to be a certainty for Captain, as Choker recovers from his shoulder reconstruction. Meanwhile Gandalf has thrown his hat in the ring for the top job at the Wallabies. Whats left of the old guard will stumble home from france with a gut full of camembert after drowning their sorrows, and meet some of the fresh faces in the Brumbies lineup.
The new boys to watch for will be Josh Holmes moving across from the Waratahs and vying for Gregan’s jumper; Tyrone Smith who is brother of George Smith, moving from UK Super League team London Harlequins, and has previously played league for Tonga, who could supplant Choker; and loose forward Mitch Chapman moving from the Qld Reds.
