This in from the Brumbies:


Despite being one of team’s youngest members Pat McCabe has developed into a leader in the CA Technologies Brumbies backline. In 2011, McCabe filled positions at fullback, inside centre and on the wing, providing a clear insight into his versatility and ability to learn fast. (2010 winner – Patrick McCabe)


Throughout the 2012 Super Rugby season, Stephen Moore has lead the CA Technologies Brumbies forward pack by example, regularly heading tackle counts and metres gained. As one of the world’s premier hookers, the CA Technologies Brumbies were delighted to secure Moore’s signature for another two seasons. (2010 Winner – Stephen Hoiles)

Shawn Mackay Award – Outstanding New Talent: ITA VAEA

After starting the season as an Academy player filling in for the injured Stephen Hoiles, Ita Vaea has gone on the forge a reputation as one of the competitions most damaging ball runners. Vaea’s ability to break the line coupled with his quality ball skills make him one of Australia’s most exciting rugby prospects. (2010 Winner – Patrick McCabe)

Brumbies Community Player Award – STEPHEN MOORE

Moore devoted hours of his own time to work with Brumbies Rugby’s No 1 ticket holder OzHarvest. Moore was also involved in a number of school and community visits throughout the year which suggest he is a worthy winner of the Brumbies Community Player Award. (2010 Winner – Christian Lealiifano)

Brett Robinson Player’s Player Award – MATT GITEAU

In what was one of the most challenging years in the CA Technologies Brumbies history, Matt Giteau’s leadership went a long way to holding the team together. He was patient, calm and collected, despite facing a barrage of pressure from a range of external forces. The huge efforts Giteau made off the field were matched only by his supreme efforts during game time. (2010 Winner – George Smith)

All of the awards should go to us supporters, hopefully next season is better.

“Giteau’s leadership went a long way to holding the team together” and “matched only by his supreme efforts during game time” – the person who wrote this tripe obviously was watching a previous seasons games, not 2011.
