Brumbies 35 Sharks 30 – Just how sneaky are the Brumbies?

By johnboy 13 March 2006 4

Planet Rugby have coverage of Saturday night’s game between the Brumbies and the Sharks from South Africa. The squeaker of a game turned on a yellow card given to the Sharks Deon Carstens late in the first half.

Now all through the first half I was watching the Sharks rushing defence smash our mid-field near to bits and wondering why we didn’t play in the forwards a bit more to draw the defence in before spinning the ball out wide. But the Brumbies persisted, the Sharks kept rushing up and eventually their persistent offsides drew the yellow card.

Now lets assume George Gregan and the chess playing Steve Larkham are better readers of a rugby game than I am (and I think we all agree there’s little danger with that assumption). We then have to ask: were they deliberately playing to get that yellow card and then turn on a tailored plan to score tries against 14 men?

What’s Your opinion?

yep, but we weren’t in it for that first 30 because we kept playing to a plan which kept us out of it.

But that plan drew the sin bin which coincided with playing better.

I don’t know if that was luck or planning, but it’something to think about.

I doubt that was the gameplan, JB – we were just not in it the first 30 mins.
-But maybe one of our Brumby player/readers could enlighten us.
And the village people – I only saw them render the gay anthem at the end of the match, & assumed it was something to do with our very own Mardi Gras.

i think dancing is an overly charitable description

they were hilariously uncoordinated.

easy on the eye however.

Does anyone have info on why we had scantily clad village people dancing around the ground. I wonder if there have been any letters to the CT about it yet?
