Brumbies Rugby in for final fight with Tahs


CA Technologies Brumbies Head Coach Tony Rea has named his team to take on the Waratahs this Saturday night, with the goal of finishing the final three games of the season with three wins firmly in sight.

Rea had the pleasure of naming an almost unchanged line-up from the one that defeated the Rebels last Friday night, with Josh Valentine returning to the bench from injury while Ita Vaea is back from suspension. Making way for Valentine and Vaea are Nic White and Sam Carter.

Defence has been the key to the CA Technologies Brumbies late-season return to form, with the backs being given opportunities off the back of hard work from the forwards at the breakdown.

More of the same will be needed if the CA Technologies Brumbies are to craft a win on Saturday night.
