Scott Sio to start against the Force

By 25 April 2013 1

The Brumbies have named the side that really needs to score four tries against the Force this Saturday night in Bruce:

Sio starts into the No. 1 jersey with Ben Alexander moving across the scrum to tight-head prop and Dan Palmer out of the match-day 22. Ruaidhri Murphy makes his second appearance from the bench while Leon Power has also been included as a run-on reserve.

It’s Power’s first appearance for the 2013 season and he comes onto the bench for Jordan Smiler.

“As always with local derbies, we expect Saturday’s match to be full of feeling and a tough contest right to the final siren,” Head Coach Jake White said.

“Scotty comes into the team for Palmer who has been left out this weekend. Scotty has come along nicely this year and looks at home in the starting line-up.

Here’s the full side:

I like this bloke. He has great ball skills and speed for a front rower.
