Brumbies disappoint against Wales

By 13 June, 2012

Foxsports have a report on the Brumbies’ 25-15 loss to Wales last night.
It brings the historical tally between the Australian Capital Territory and the Principality of Wales to 2 games each, which is still something to be proud of.
The heroes of 1978 were there and many from 1996, but by half time the home side [...]

Brumbies named to face Wales on Tuesday night

By 10 June, 2012

The Brumbies have named a pretty useful looking side to play Wales at Canberra Stadium on Tuesday night. A lot of exciting players are getting their chance to shine!
Fotu and Mogg coming off the bench suggests Coach White has a cunning plan!
University of Canberra Brumbies
1. Ruaidhri Murphy
2. Anthony Hegarty
3. [...]

Tomane out for six weeks

By 8 June, 2012

The Roar have the extremely annoying news that the useless Wallaby regime has broken the Brumbies’ star winger Joe Tomane.
Tomane was rushed to hospital for scans during Thursday afternoon’s training session after hurting his left ankle at Ballymore.
The scans revealed he had suffered a syndesmosis injury and is expected to be sidelined for up [...]

Pocock for the Brumbies?

By 5 June, 2012

With 1 player position left in the 2013 roster and around $500,000 free under the salary cap David Pocock did seem like a bit of a fit for the Brumbies, assuming he could be lured from the Force which he seems to basically be running as his own personal fiefdom these days.
Worldcupweb is reporting he [...]

Brumbies give the Rebels a kicking 27 to 19

By 4 June, 2012

Foxsports reports on an ugly but solid effort by the Brumbies in Melbourne to take the points.
Perhaps more importantly your RiotACT crew got themselves on the tele to reward our road tripping efforts (which have delayed this report).
Zack Homes is starting to show signs of brilliance and with a favourable run home the top of [...]

Coleman to start for the Brumbies against the Rebels

By 31 May, 2012

The Brumbies have named the side for the road-trip worthy Rebels game this Friday. (The RiotACT assault squad can be found in Riverland if the weather is dry or Young & Jacksons if not)
Big Fotu’s back on the bench which is good to see even if Kimlin at 6 is yet to set our hearts [...]

Brumbies declare themselves title contenders?

By 29 May, 2012

The Brumbies have posted a slightly peculiar mashup video of yesteryear’s successes juxtaposed with some of the better moments from this season. It comes with this note:
The Brumbies go back to the future to have a crack at the 2012 trophy.
Now I yield to no one in my admiration of this year’s improvement, but perhaps [...]

Brumbies in the Wallabies train on squad

By 28 May, 2012

Brumbies fans had rather been hoping that we’d escape the attentions of the selectors and leave our players to get on with Brumby business.
But no such luck with the 39 strong training squad announcement.
For the players it’s a huge honour and it’s certainly another validation of what the side has been doing this year (the [...]

Brumbies squeaked by the Reds 13 against 12

By 26 May, 2012

Foxsports tells the tale of the Brumbies very disappointing one point loss to the Queensland Reds.
The only try scored was from a pointless midfield kick and after that neither side of losers was able to do anything much worth watching.
Real rugby teams are going to make mincemeat of both these sides.

Kimlin at 6 as Fotu’s brain gets a break against the Reds

By 24 May, 2012

The Brumbies have announced the side for Saturday’s epic encounter against the resurgent Queensland Reds.
Kimlin will wear the No 6 jersey, with Ben Mowen moving back to No 8 and Fotu Auelua out of the 22-man squad. Claiming Kimlin’s bench spot is Leon Power who has turned in a series of impressive performances for [...]

A bit cheaper for the Rugby?

By 22 May, 2012

As much as I love the Brums, shift work is a cruel task master…but finally a weekend off!  
The Reds match should be a cracker, but oh the prices with the extra ticketek charge & their handling fee!  
Do any of the clubs around the ACT do discounted rates for tix as I’ve seen the [...]

Brumbies win big as ugly as ugly gets. Brumbies 37 Hurricanes 25

By 18 May, 2012

Taking five competition points from the Hurricanes in New Zealand is no small achievement.
The reserves of character displayed by the Brumbies to play so badly, for so long, and still score four tries and win by some margin must be applauded.
Keo has an excellent match report of how we scored 19 unanswered points in [...]

Jake White holds forth before the Hurricanes game

By 17 May, 2012

Brumbies coach Jake White’s YouTube appearances are essential viewing for Brumbies fans. Here’s the latest instalment.

Zack Holmes the new Brumbies flyhalf

By 16 May, 2012

The Brumbies have announced their side for the very important game against the Wellington Hurricanes on Friday evening.
As predicted by yours truly in the Monday night rugby podcast Zack Holmes has got the nod to replace the white-hot Christian Lealiifano (right up until he smashed his ankle).
The other change in the side that thumped the [...]

[ 12 June, 2012; ] The Welsh touring groups have been advertising a Canberra game for some time.

But this afternoon the Brumbies have finally got on board:

ACT Rugby fans will see international Rugby this winter with Wales committing to a game against the University of Canberra Brumbies at Canberra Stadium, 12 June.

The midweek game will be a good [...]

Brumbies lure Peter Hewat back from Japan

By 13 May, 2012

The Brumbies have announced they’ve secured the services of former Waratah great Peter Hewat who at age 32 has been playing for Suntory in Japan after being snubbed for Wallaby selection.
Since leaving Australian shores he’s been playing flyhalf which is handy as we seem to have broken many of ours.
Sadly he’s not going to be [...]

Zack Holmes and Robbie Coleman the options for replacing Christian Lealiifano

By 7 May, 2012

The Brumbies have made a statement on Christian Lealiifano’s ankle injury which has seen the rising star go under the knife today.
For those wondering about the future here’s the plan:
we spoke about in the change room and it’s not great but it’s just another challenge that’s been thrown up to the group. As far [...]

Brumbies 23, Waratahs 6! But our star pivot is gone for the season

By 5 May, 2012

It wasn’t pretty, and it wasn’t great (Foxsports tells the tale).
But it was a pretty comprehensive thrashing of those bastards from Sydney with nine turncoats turning out in nursery blue.
A special “get cancer and die” to the NSW parents who let their kids stand in the front row and not sit their tubby arses down [...]

Jake White on Brumbies v. Waratahs (and a song request for when Rocky runs on)

By 4 May, 2012

The Brumbies have posted video of Jake White’s latest press conference which is worth watching to feel the pain of an intelligent man being asked questions by obvious imbeciles (by and large sports journalists pretend to write for people who pretend to read).
But in the lead up to what we anticipate will be an epic [...]

The Economic Development Directorate lectures on racism, cheering, and sport

By 4 May, 2012

There’s little in this world as nauseating as the growing legions of Government social media experts re-tweeting everything a minister says (often followed by a leaden “thank you for the re-tweet” from the Minister).
But this morning’s effort from the Economic Development Directorate really takes the cake.
Remember taxpayers. You’re paying to be lectured on who you [...]

Brumbies named to trample the hated pansies

By 3 May, 2012

The Brumbies have announced the team to restore the ACT’s honour in the only clash that really matters in our rugby calendar, playing NSW.
Sam Carter moves back to the starting side to partner Scott Fardy at lock while Ben Mowen and Dan Palmer return to blind-side flanker and tight-head prop respectively after a week [...]

More Brumbies sign on for the future

By 2 May, 2012

The Brumbies are very wisely trying to lock up their rising young stars before the vultures from the cashed up talent holes that are the other Australian sides can get their talons in.
To that end it’s been announced that another four young guns have put pen to paper on contract extensions:
Four more players have [...]

The Brumbies’ variation hits the Legislative Assembly

By 1 May, 2012

Simon Corbell has heralded the tabling of Variation 307 in the Legislative Assembly which will let the Brumbies turn their Griffith HQ into lots of lucrative apartments:
Variation 307 rezones the site from current commercial CZ6 leisure and accommodation zoning to the RZ4 medium density residential zone.
“Variation 307 has been subject to detailed scrutiny both by [...]

Brumbies win on the road! Brumbies 34, Lions 20

By 28 April, 2012

Kicks? We don’t need no stinking kicks! We’ll just score more tries!
Foxsports tells the tale of ACT victory on the high veldt, admittedly against the pretty ordinary Lions.
The Canberra-based franchise scored six tries, three in each half, and won comfortably despite kickers Christian Lealiifano and Jesse Mogg raising the flags with just two of their [...]

Brumbies Vs Leek Munchers?

By 26 April, 2012

On the BBC, I came across this interesting article;
George North insists Wales are ready to build on Grand Slam success rather than lose the momentum as happened after the 2005 and 2008 successes. The 20-year-old wing wants to keep the winning streak going on June’s three-Test tour of Australia. Wales face the Barbarians [...]

Moore gets the nod as captain for the Brumbies crunch game against the Lions

By 26 April, 2012

There aren’t many better opportunities in world rugby than a tour game against Johannesburg’s Lions.
It’s a legitimate outing in South Africa against a pretty ordinary team.
To that end the Brumbies have named their side for this crucial game.
Inspirational skipper Ben Mowen is out with a recurring neck complaint we can’t see being improved by the [...]
