A game Foxsports couldn’t be bothered showing in full was perhaps a warning to Brumbies fans that it would be a nearly completely worthless use of their own time.
The Foxsports coverage glosses over just how bad the 56-7 thrashing was with the only bright spot being the odd spot of Ben Alexander quality and an otherwise badly beaten George Smith smashing the ever piratic Ma’a Nonu.
And what was up with all the pr0nariffic mustaches adorning the ‘Canes players?
UPDATED: This bleak assesment from Brumbies Media:
- In recording their eight-tries-to-one victory, the Hurricanes inflicted the CA Brumbies’ biggest defeat in Super Rugby, eclipsing the Canberra-based side’s 44-10 loss to the Waratahs in 1996. The loss also marked the most points the CA Brumbies have conceded in a match, with the previous record of 49 points also held by the Wellington side in their 49-37 win in 2005.
While the CA Brumbies had eight players unavailable through injury or suspension prior to the match, Head Coach Andy Friend refused to use that as an excuse for his side’s loss.
“Tonight we met a side that was red hot,” he said.
“There’s an easy out to suggest that we’ve had three emotionally-charged weeks and maybe that caught up with us, but we need to find the answers because that [result] is unacceptable.
