Lucky Brumbies squeak a win 23 to 20 over the mighty Bulls

By 30 March 2013 13

Despite completely obliterating the Bulls scrum the Brumbies insistence on playing it close brought the result down to an extra time penalty kick.

But Napoleon said he wanted lucky generals not clever ones.

And our guys were lucky tonight.

It was announced that there would be Easter eggs for people after the game, it’s not a big deal we didn’t get any but I was told they had 80,000 and no one I know got any, a few people looked around on the way out but no eggs, so did done people, the early leavers eat them all or did they not get handed out?

Referee should have been run out of town. Some very ordinary calls went against us, and the policing of the line out was it’s usual miserable self.

Eggs were handed out by Cadbury ring ins. Not sure how they were handed out, as we didn’t see any on the way through the gates, but people who were on the bus before us did. My guess: they handed them out early, gave away multiple bags to each person, and bolted to go themselves before the masses made their way to the gates.

That brings back memories of the infamous Easter Egg scandal at Belconnen Mall in 1981. On the stage was a promotion billed as a children’s Easter Egg hunt where the littlies on the stage with the presenters would hunt for the eggs which were concealed within the set. When the countdown from ten to one was finished a mob of older teenagers rushed the stage, grabbed all the eggs and left the little kids in tears. Much angst and letters to the Canberra Times followed. Needless to say that was the first (and last) time that event was held.

I took a bunch of friends to their first Brumbies game hoping to “convert” them. I couldn’t blame them if they never talked to me again. I was there for the Brumbies first match in 1996, and last night I went to my last. Irrespective of result, this is not entertainment.

Rugby stopped being entertaining years ago. The rules stifle the game and turn it into a stodgy experience, reminiscent of watching the Dutch soccer team in the last World Cup.

I actually had a bit of an internal debate about whether to call it soccer or football.

Soccer won because there are more people on earth who use the word soccer than football.

Your source is piss poor. What do the 180 or so countries that are grey on the map call the round ball game?

Probably football in their language. As far as English speakers go, more people call it soccer than football.

It also doesn’t help that the atmosphere at Brumbies games is reminiscent of a morgue. The crowd literally sits there in silence. If you actually make some noise, people look at you like you’re disturbing the peace in a library.

I still can’t believe people complained that they were playing music during the breaks in play. My living room provides more atmosphere & resembles more of an actual sporting event than the Brumbies home crowds.

I know what you mean. I was at the game with a mate of mine and when we stood up to applaud the Brumbies first-half try some dickhead behind us pulled our shirts and told us to sit down because he couldn’t see the game.

I politely told him that if he pulled my shirt again I’d kock his effin lights out!

They were handing them out at the end by the gates onto Battye Street…totally disorganised.
My mate and I edged into the scrum of people with their hands out and the woman with the bags shouted “they’re just for the kids!”…..so we wound our hands in and walked off emptyhanded.

I think they were those dreadful mini-egg things in bags. I guess somebody from PR had got a calculator out. :-)
