Normally we yield to no one in boosting Brumbies players on the international stage.
But it goes to the heart of the Brumbies woes that today’s announcement of the Wallabies squad to play in the world cup saw two Brumbies players snubbed, and they thoroughly deserved it.
James Horwill has been named our Captain over Rocky Elsom (sadly still in the squad), and Matt Giteau has been left out of the squad.
Hopefully next year the big name Brumbies will be people we’d want to see playing for our country.
For those wondering about Giteau this tweet really summed it up for me:
Attached was this photo:
Joke yadda yadda, context, yadda yadda. It’s twitter, it’s public, and it’s taking a nasty pop at a team mate who’s just extended hospitality.
Not conclusive of its own but for mine a confirmation of other suspicions.
UPDATE: We should however congratulate Ben Alexander, Salesi Ma’afu, Pat McCabe and Stephen Moore who have been named.
