Strong squad named for the Brumbies trial game

By johnboy 28 January 2009 4

The Brumbies media centre may still be “UNDER CONSTRUCTION”, but fortunately for them I have the power of google documents.

Therefore allow me to present the latest media release on this Friday’s trial game between our brave lads and the Wellington Hurricanes.

    “The CA Brumbies have included eight Wallabies in their 29-man squad to play the Hurricanes in their opening Investec Super 14 trial match at Canberra Stadium on Friday night.

    Prop Ben Alexander, lock Mark Chisholm and lock/back rower Peter Kimlin will make their first appearance since the 2008 Wallaby Spring Tour. They will be joined by fellow Wallabies Mark Gerrard, Nic Henderson,Guy Shepherdson, Clyde Rathbone and incumbent CA Brumbies captain Stephen Hoiles, who will skipper the side for the first time since officially taking over the post two weeks ago.

They’re also promising to blood lots of youngsters with, apparently, the side still unsettled:

    CA Brumbies Head Coach Andy Friend says the trial season is important in building momentum in the lead-up to the CA Brumbies’ first Investec Super 14 match against the Highlanders in Dunedin on Friday, 13 February.

    “Virtually every position for our Round One match against the Highlanders is up for grabs over the next two weeks [against the Hurricanes and Waratahs],” he said. “We want to see how players are playing under our style of rugby and while we’ve made some excellent progress through the pre-season it counts for nothing unless we can start putting it into practice.

Kickoff is at 7.40pm.

Trial matches dont get covered by Fox or free to air. Canberra Times on line would no doubt cover the results and story on Saturday. I may even post some match photos from my mobile – should be a good game with a new captain.

Hey Johnboy – you dont need to access the media centre anyway, their press release is easily obtainable from their website home page and under News.

In previous years ACTION has run busses from gungarlin to the brumbies games, however according to their web site they will not be doing this on Friday. Looks like i will have to drive into Belconnen and catch a bus from there.
