    Jeez this Brumbies team is well coached.

    A big fat up yours from Jake to all the doubters who always bad mouth him.

    Wow, Brumbies taking penalty kick points on offer! Imagine this novel idea.

    Travel fatigue seems to be setting in on the Brumbies side.

    Brumbies Lock “Fadhi” is a revelation.

    “Fadhi” is also a cool name for a huge marauding Lock.
