Brumbies named for the Rebels

johnboy 9 June 2011

The Brumbies are calling their opponents a rabble in the media release naming the side to take on the Melbourne franchise.

Mitchell Chapman will slide to the back of the scrum at No 8, while Henry Vanderglas will take his place at blind-side flanker in his first Super Rugby start.

Onto the bench come two new debutants in Sam Carter and Tom Boidin – Carter at lock and Boidin as a loose forward. Both players have been working hard with their club side, Sydney University and were key performers for the Brumby Runners earlier in the year.

Carter has been signed to the fulltime squad for the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

The backline remains the same with Head Coach Tony Rea pleased with McCabe’s switch to inside centre against the Reds.

And the full team is:
