The Brumbies have made a statement on Christian Lealiifano’s ankle injury which has seen the rising star go under the knife today.

For those wondering about the future here’s the plan:

we spoke about in the change room and it’s not great but it’s just another challenge that’s been thrown up to the group. As far as fly-half stocks go we’ve still got Robbie Coleman and Zack Holmes so there are still options for us there.

“We’ve got to trust our systems from here on in. The last thing Christian would want us to do would be to drop our heads. When Matt was injured Christian just got on with it and I think he’d be disappointed if we didn’t do the same.”

I’d quite like to see what the former sevens star Holmes can do. But with both options being on the small side we can expect to see a lot of large movers coming down the 10 channel in coming weeks.

Fortunately with the bye the Brumbies at least have two weeks to get their groove on with the new combinations.

Zac was pretty sharp in the Shute Shield last season and from memory he came off the bench in one of our early games and performed well. Give him a go I say, isn’t this what we signed him for?
