Brumbies starting lineup announced.

The Brumbies have announced their starting lineup for this Friday afternoon’s clash with the Otago Highlanders in Dunedin.

There’s 11 Wallabies in the starting lineup.

Ben Alexander has been benched in favour of Guy Shepherdson.

Of some interest is the retention of Stirling Mortlock at inside centre, which will give him more chances to run as a crash centre. It’ll be intriguing to see how he answers lingering questions about his suitability to play as the second fly half.

Halfback also seems to have been resolved with Patrick Phibbs getting the nod over Josh Holmes.

The 15 are:

    1. Nic Henderson
    2. Stephen Moore
    3. Guy Shepherson
    4. Ben Hand
    5. Mark Chisholm
    6. Julian Salvi
    7. George Smith
    8. Stephen Hoiles (c)
    9. Patrick Phibbs
    10. Christian Lealiifano
    11. Francis Fainifo
    12. Stirling Mortlock
    13. Adam Ashley-Cooper
    14. Clyde Rathbone
    15. Mark Gerrard

Even Peter Fitzgerald knows why he’s called Noodles.

If you listen to the podcast you will learn things like why Peter Kimlin is called “Noodles”.

Good to see Salvi in the lineup. And Kimlin out of it.
