The Brumbies have named their side to play Durban based Sharks this Saturday at Canberra Stadium:

Keen RiotACT watch Ruaudhri Murphy is getting a starting run for Dan Palmer who’s feeling poorly.

Matt Toomua is a little lucky to be coming back into the side at fly half after Christian Leiliifano’s sizzling game last week. Lealiifano moves to inside centre and McCabe to the wing.

Joe Tomane’s going to be used as an impact player from the bench. After his two try effort last week one hopes they don’t leave him there too long. Henry Speight is going to be feeling some pressure to perform one would think.

The last time the Sharks won in Canberra was 1998, so it would be nice to keep them out.

Here’s the team:

Nic White has been suffering from a virus which Dan Palmer now appears to have contracted.

Nick White still on the bench. Prior has a good passing game but doesn’t run the ball, Nick is such a good attacking scrum half.

Speight has been mostly outstanding and is probably our most dangerous ball runner. One would think that McCabe would be in more danger of losing his spot if these things were decided entirely on form.
