The Brumbies have announced they’ve achieved a pre-condition of success in the Super 14, an unchanged side from week to week.

This is a good thing as this Saturday at Canberra Stadium they’re facing the mighty Canterbury Crusaders, the best New Zealand rugby has to offer.

It’s going to be a big game, and to add spice the players are donating half their match fees to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal, while Red Cross volunteers will be shaking the tin for the appeal at the ground. Also the Brumbies are going to donate $1 for everyone who turns up, and if the crowd exceeds 20,000 will throw in an extra $20k.

If you want to be a part of all the excitement we’ve got two spare seats with the RiotACT crew for the night. Email with, in 25 words or less, why you should get the tix. Entries close 5pm Thursday 19 February.

UPDATED: WOOHOO! The NZ Herald brings word that Richie McCaw, Brad Thorn and Leon MacDonald have all been ruled out of the Crusaders side. If we can’t beat them now we never will.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Kazza has won the tickets with the following entry:

    I believe I should win the tickets because I have never seen a rugby union match before – I want to see what all the fuss is about 🙂

In other match news the Brumbies have announced that half of Saturday night’s fundraising effort is now going to the Balfour Family Trust.

Also Joe Roff is back in town working for the Nous Group and is going to be an “ambassador for the CA Brumbies’ Victorian Bushfire Appeal” for whatever that’s worth.

4:30pm – Gates open
5.35pm – curtain raiser – act vets v navy old salts
7.40pm – main game – brumbies v crusaders

Say – if last year we had Stirlo the Well-Capped Waterboy, What do we get to call Joe? Joe the Well-Suited Bucket-Boy?

Hope the Navy has new give-aways this year – there’s a limit to how many inflatably drink trays one can use.

Half? Tight. Aussie cricket team gave the full 100%.

How much of your payday did you chip in?

National side cricketers have rather more to give than the whole spectrum of a Super14 side.

Usually the first home game of the season has a few more bells n’ whistles, like fireworks & halftime helicopters/plane flyover and/or parachuting commandos.

Skid, am surprised your keen eye didnt pick up the giveaway from episode 2 of the 2009 riotact rugby podcast. It could be that the winning keyword was mentioned in that 🙂

Will at least 5 words from the winning RiotACT reader be “And I’m a premium subscriber”?

I might just give the Brumbies a go this Saturday, plenty of soccer and league games in the last few years but other than one game in their inaugural season I’ve never been to a Brumbies game since. It’s got to be at least as family friendly as a Raiders game, probably a little more so, in which case I might drag Clan Swaggo along…

Do we get to hear the winners’ spruik?

I have no interest in football, but it would be interesting to hear how the winners won their tix…
