Team named to tame Cheetahs


The CA Technologies Brumbies have named their side to play the Cheetahs at Bloemfontein on Friday night [Saturday morning, 3am AEST].

The return of players like Huia Edmonds and Stephen Moore has added depth to the pack, while promotion to the starting side for the first time this year for Pat Phibbs at scrumhalf is also a switch of note.

Jono Owen moves to the bench and should he get game time will make his Super Rugby debut against the Cheetahs.

Robbie Coleman has also made a return to the bench, with Head Coach Tony Rea yesterday suggesting his strong club form with Manly had been an influence on that decision.
