Unless Mr Miyagi is on the Brumbies’ payroll, Slipper and Samu are not going to play. Big, big losses.
Sio needs to play big minutes and the Brumbies need to be well clear by the time he’s replaced or else....

It’s at Suncorp?
Then yes, it’ll be 35k.
The Broncos are garbage, and away to the equally rubbish Cowboys, so it’ll be busy down Caxton St.

McReight is (potentially) the best 7 in the world, IMO. He is going to give Sam Underhill some pressure for space on my poster wall.

Yup. Sam plays second fiddle to Curry, but for me, he’s the more important of the two on the pitch.

Word on the street is that they've opened the top tiers for ticket sales which points towards a 40K crowd.

I'm going. I usually don't like going to big matches because I get nervous and sweary and so forth and suddenly I'm surrounded by cops. My wife, without telling me, bought tickets with a bunch of parents from my son's school so I'm, apparently, on my best behaviour.

At least it isn't against a Kiwi team with the ubiquitous "hard as bro smesh him" supporters. There will be something like 17 Brumby supporters in the ground.

Some huge calls. Wright dropped and JOC returns to the captaincy. Vunivalu hasn't recovered. Backline lacks a bit of penetration, but in Thorn we trust etc. etc.

Samu and Slipper out, FF drooped to the reserves for the Ponies.

He did go off injured last week and was in doubt for this week...

And with McInerney also out injured they're short on hookers.

More on the fact that Lonergan gets manhandled by all and sundry at scrum time. But the Brumbies have got a monstrous backrow to make up for it, so maybe he will survive. All bets are off once Sio takes a spell.
