Brumbies to become the Canberra Comics?

The Courier Mail has a sledge from former coach Eddie Jones over their maladministration:

Previously, the Brumbies were the Barcelona of football and recruited players that fitted the style they ran.

Soon and sadly, they will be the Canberra Comics.

Up until 2005, the two-time Super Rugby champions were clearly an organisation in charge of their own destiny.

They were well administered, recruited superbly and played a style of rugby that was distinctive, entertaining, inventive and, importantly, winning.

I guess we’ll find out tonight.

After seeing last night’s effort, I think we can safely say the Brumbies won’t be anywhere near the finals this year. (Nor the Reds for that matter).

well there are lots of issues and personalities in this clusterf*ck.

The result tonight means little. The B’s would be expected to win on record, at home. a bonus point win would be par.
For mine, if these guys want to dick around, fine, but if it was politics or business, well they would be deselected quick smart. Actually it is a business, which is currently being partly funded by ACT taxpayers money so they should all give themselves an uppercut.
The behaviour of some players, staff and management goes against the spirit of rugby.
The good old boys need to take a bloody good look in the mirror, and piss off.

True that johnboy!
