Big Tomane Brumbies bound

The Brumbies are extremely excited that Stephen Larkham has lured Joseph Tomane (pron: Toe-mah-neh) from playing mungo on the Gold Coast to Canberra’s icy environs.

The former Melbourne Storm and Gold Coast Titans rugby league star was looking for an opportunity in rugby union, having gone through the junior representative ranks with players like James O’Connor and Matt Toomua.

At 1.87m tall and 105kg, Tomane will be one of the CA Technologies Brumbies biggest outside backs. Over the last four years Tomane has made a name for himself in rugby league with his dominant running style, fearless aggression and bone-jolting tackles.

They’re so keen on this one they’ve linked to some YouTube of good running, but suspect grounding:

It is a bit, he had massive wraps on him as a kid, has shown glimpses of it but yet to really make a name.

Should be able to run a crash ball o.k.

It’s worrying that he can’t get a start for the worst team in the NRL.

Good player, excellent signing

Has struggled this year but the whole Titans team has been disfunctional
