Julian Salvi video. Tragedy or Comic Genius at the Brumbies?

I really do not know what to make of this video posted by “BrumbiesMediaCentre” yesterday.

It comes with this note:

CA Technologies Brumbies flanker Julian Salvi had a big off-season. Since returning from a year of rugby in Bath, he has been juggling his pre-season with a job as a financial planner and two false teeth.

It’s like watching a train wreck… for exactly 3 minutes.

Do you think they released the video before they’d finished? Or did they run out of film?

On 2nd thought the camera guy may have fallen asleep.

My first instinct was to laugh but then it hit me that he’s a very good rugby player and a financial planner, not a public speaker.

He’s being turned into a media personality by the FM 104 and, apparently, the Brumbies themselves, so the poor bloke can’t be blamed for not being so ‘polished’ in his presentation.

Actually, now I kind of feel sorry for him as he looks decidedly uncomfortable in that footage. He’s obviously smart enough to know he needs to build a career after football, so good luck to him!

I thought it was an ad for Lowes Menswear at the start – bad suit Jules

STOP twirling the damn pen!
