Perfect storm blows the Brumbies out of the finals

By 15 July 2012

On Friday morning we faced a weekend in which, for the Brumbies to miss the finals, a very great number of things had to go wrong, including their own performance. They were in a great position and masters of their own destiny.
As Foxsports informs us the very worst has come to pass.
The Super Rugby [...]

Diabolically bad Brumbies let down themselves and their fans. Blues 30, Brumbies 16

By 14 July 2012

Foxsports tells the tale of a pathetic effort by the Brumbies getting rolled at home by the cellar dwelling Blues when playing for a finals berth.
Having paid good money to sit in the cold rain and watch this rubbish one can’t even realistically hope they squeak into the finals.

Brumbies do enough to keep the miracle going. ACT 19, NSW 15

By 8 July 2012

It’s important to remember just how miserable last season was for the Brumbies and just how many stars they cleaned out in favour of no-name players.
With that in mind Foxsports has word of their first win over NSW in Sydney since 2002.
No 51-10 this time, but 19-15 will do.
Roll on the All Black laden, but [...]

Ita Vaea emerges as unexpected goal kicking option for the Brumbies

By 3 July 2012

One normally doesn’t expect a large back rower to be seen kicking goals.
But the Brumbies have released this video of Ita Vaea slotting a tricky one at practice in Perth despite the best efforts of his team mates to put him off.
Good to know if Zack Holmes has another off night with the boot!

Sports Bars in Canberra

By 2 July 2012

Rioters
The biggest game of the Brumbies 2012 season is fast approaching! Brumbies v NSW Waratahs, Saturday night 7:30pm. While it is tempting to make the fabled journey up the Hume Highway to watch the game live, this may not be an option for various reasons.
That leaves me trying to find a decent location to watch the [...]

Brumbies play a sneaky game downing the Force 28-17

By 1 July 2012

Foxsports tells the tale of an intriguing game of rugby played last night whereby our brave lads played a perfect first half of rugby to humiliate Gina’s Minions.
They then shut up shop allowing a rampaging Honey Badger (Nick Cummins) to expose the Wallaby selectors as fools.
But the game was always under control and, as importantly, [...]

Brumbies’ lock has his twitter hacked

By 16 June 2012

My limited twitter interactions with the Brumbies are usually characterised along the lines of “Good luck!” replied to with “Thanks bro!”.
So I was it was an eyebrow raiser when I got the above direct message this morning from Brumbies lock Sam Carter.
Who could resist clicking a link like that?
Fortunately other brave pioneers have caught the [...]

Brumbies disappoint against Wales

By 13 June 2012

Foxsports have a report on the Brumbies’ 25-15 loss to Wales last night.

The heroes of 1978 were there and many from 1996, but by half time the home side [...]

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.

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 [...]

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.
