Fotu and Tomane back for Brumbies’ date with destiny

By johnboy - 12 July 2012 3

The Brumbies have published their side to take on the underperforming but All Black laden Auckland Blues this Saturday afternoon.

As forshadowed in the podcast Fotu Auelua is back in the side and will be coming rampaging off the bench.

Big Joe Tomane is also recovered and pushing Robbie Coleman to the bench which is bit of a hard call considering how great his running has been the last few weeks.

And of course if the Brumbies can get a single competition point from the game they’ll top the Australian conference and hos the finals.

Here’s some history from the Brums.

    • The University of Canberra Brumbies have met the Blues on 17 different occasions with Auckland holding an advantage at 10 wins to seven.
    • 2011 was the first time since 1996 the Blues and the Brumbies didn’t face each other.
    • The last time the Brumbies played the Blues was in Auckland in 2010, with the Brumbies going down 39-34. That was Andrew Smith’s debut Super Rugby match.
    • The last time the Blues won in Canberra was 2007, 17-15.
    • Auckland has won three times in Canberra.

If the reds get four tries and beat the waratahs all bets are off.

Game on!

I’m certainly no expert either, but, forgive me if i’m wrong, aren’t they assured a finals spot, with today just deciding if they get a home final or not?
