The Brumbies have announced more players who can’t make it onto the pitch for their leadership group:
The UC Brumbies have announced their leadership group for the 2014 Super Rugby competition, with Fotu Auelua and Clyde Rathbone joining David Pocock, Christian Lealiifano and Stephen Moore under the incumbent skipper, Ben Mowen.
The group of six will help guide the club both on and off the park, with more than 40 years of rugby experience combined between them.
Auelua arrived at the UC Brumbies in 2012 on the back of five years playing in France and Japan and has since developed into one of the club’s go-to men. Auelua’s big presence on and off the field saw him elevated to the club’s leadership group during the 2014 pre-season and that role has now been extended into the season proper.
Having captained the ACT XV in 2013, Auelua is no stranger to leadership duties and the big loose forward said he was proud to have been given the honour of a position in the team’s leadership group.
