Back in mid January the Brumbies made their first foray into restaurant reviews by their front row* and were, it seems, not thrilled by my assessment of that effort (although it should be noted that if we hadn’t given it a push few would have seen it).
This week they’re off to Dieci E Mezzo, part owned by former Brumbies front rower Jeremy Paul who makes a cameo.
I was particularly touched by the dedication to me at the start of the review, and am heartened by the news they’re straight back into training. If any of them would like to come along to our weekly rugby podcast recordings through the season they’re more than welcome (heck backs, locks, number 8s, we’re not picky).
There probably is a space in the restaurant review market for large men untroubled by price, and these reviews are for you!
*For non rugby conversant readers the front row of a rugby team are the wide shouldered gentlemen, normally not too tall (low centre of gravity is important to their work) who pack in at the front of the scrum and generally determine which side is the more masculine. If they get bossed it’s very, very hard for their side to win.
