I was immensely impressed in the lead up to tonight’s game when the Brumbies’ media unit said tonight’s game would be “definitive”.
That was very precise language. The meaning was that a win would make the whole season worthwhile, whereas a loss would consign them to mid-table mediocrity.
Keo informs that mediocrity was the outcome.
That’s not to say that there wasn’t some heroic defence through most of the second half.
The only consolation was the arrival of Francis Fainifo as a winger of the first water.
Final result 10-7.
Game over and let’s try and forget the ineptitude of the last ten minutes when everything was to play for.
