Brumbies disappoint again – Lions 25 – Brumbies 17

By johnboy - 22 March 2009 9

The LIONS? How do we lose to the LIONS? The worstest, losingest team in the history of the competition. The Queensland Reds of South African rugby. The answer to the joke “What has 30 legs and sits at the bottom of the ladder”.

Brumbies media have published a shameful admission of this horrendous failure.

    “Our intent was good but our execution was poor,” he said. “We made a lot of linebreaks and we made a lot of opportunities, we just weren’t good enough to capitalise on those.

    “There were a few forced passes, we didn’t react to those. There were enough opportunities there to win a game of football but we weren’t good enough at finishing them off.

Story of the season then, a complete lack of penetration.

What’s Your opinion?

They were better with Laurie? Perhaps “Bring back Rod!” would be better…although I still thing Friendy deserves more of a run than 5 games (3 of which we won remember) before we call for his sacking.

I’m so very glad I didn’t watch this game.

Nothing like staying up til 4am to watch the worst team in S14 history fluke a win against a team who played for 20 minutes. Gerrard, Alexander and Salvi should get the entire team’s match payments while Holmes should be sent back just so we can’t pick him next week. Horrible game, not much more to say…

I think the main aim for the rest of this year should be develop the team for when Giteau comes back next year.

Especially if Mortlock is out for some time.

The Brumbies cannot win in SA. They prove it every year. The Lions are shithouse. If we can’t beat them at home but sorry, my hopes for them this year just died

I was unfortunate enough to watch the game. The Brumbies actually did show up to play; their intensity was good. They dominated possession and territory but couldn’t convert that into points. JB hit the nail on the head – lack of penetration. This is a coaching issue.

Ben Alexander and Gerrard were exceptional for the Brumbies.

I’m no doctor but i’d be amazed if if Mortlock hasn’t done his ACL.

You can’t lose to the Lions and expect to make the finals.

Had enough ball to win twice, but just could not hold on to it. The ball handling was just atrocious. I lasted until the 60 minute mark then gave up in disgust.
