UC Brumbies 2014 season schedule released

SANZAR has confirmed the final schedule for the 2014 Super Rugby season with several big games highlighting the year at Canberra Stadium.

The 2014 season opens at Canberra Stadium with the traditional grudge match against the Reds on February 22 while the Waratahs are due in town on March 15.

As usual, plenty of former UC Brumbies will return to Canberra Stadium in 2014. Force recruits Ian Prior and Zack Holmes are due back in Canberra on July 11, while Rebels new guy Colby Faingaa returns to Bruce a few weeks earlier on May 31.

A Grand Final rematch against the Chiefs on ANZAC Day (April 25) and an appearance by new-Auckland-Blue, Benji Marshall (April 4) have created plenty of buzz around the New Zealand tourists visiting Canberra.

In a battle for top spots, the UC Brumbies will go into battle with two of South Africa’s best sides at Canberra Stadium in the Stormers (March 22) and the Sharks (May 10).

Away from home, the UC Brumbies face tough opposition from the Hurricanes (March 7), Crusaders (May 3), Cheetahs (May 17) and Bulls (May 24). The foreign matches are back-ended by the usual home and away fixtures with the four other Australian sides.

2014 UC Brumbies Memberships are still available with same-seat cut off Monday, 21 October.
