Brumbies Need Props

Are you over 110 kilos, able to run 40m and cuddle people aggressively? Then you should give the Brumbies a call as they’ve just lost 3 props in the last week. They’ve called up John Ulugia back into the squad to fill in for injuries to Jerry Yanuyanutawa with a stress fracture to his foot, Ben Alexander has a fractured finger, and Jono Owen strained his calf.

So with 3 weeks until the first trial match against the Pansies at Viking Park hopefully they’ll have a full team by the time the Super 14 starts. I’m told the trial match on 4 Feb is the same day as the PM’s XI. So you could spend the whole day in the sun at Manuka oval watching the West Indies and then figure out what bus will take you down to Erindale for the Brumbies trial match.

It’s not that bad.

Alexander won’t need surgery and will either return for the first or second round.

That means the Brumbies will only be missing their 4th and 5th choice props.

– Are you over 110 kilos, yes
– able to run 40m, and Yes (No real prop would run more than 20m unless there is a steak at the end)
– cuddle people aggressively Yes.

Offer me a nice fat contract and I’m there.

But after 10 years of rugby at school, the army and club level, my Dr advised strongly against playing again after 2 broken arms (one in 3 places), a dislocated jaw and a a back that is prone to fits of evil spasms…
