The way I see it, we need to win tonight and track the Crusaders through to the final round and win in Christchurch. We’re still a full game out of the 4 if we get home tonight and a win away against Crusaders will be like pushing shit uphill.

Unfortunately, on current form I think the Red will deal with us next weekend and the season will be over. I am optimistic about tonight.

Phibbs has an backline-retarding habit of taking three steps before floating a pass to the flyhalf that cuts through the air like a balloon. Otherwise known as George Gregan Syndrome (GSS).

Hate to type it but we’re little-to-no chance in this one. Take the 1.55 on offer and bank it on Monday morning.

I’ve always though Phibbs has shown a lot of heart and tenacity on the field and has been extremely loyal to the club. I think he has been treated poorly since Gregan retired by parading through a series of young hopefuls that have all been duds.

I’m just an old forward and there are probably technical deficiencies to his game that only other backs can identify but secret back’s business has not been helping the Brumbies in recent years.

Thought Phibbs had done enough to stay in the starting lineup.
