Brumbies preseason update


With Week Two of preseason almost finished the Brumbies are already looking leaner and more athletic under the new coaching structure. 

Players have been recording some record scores in the skin fold testing, with numbers at Saturday morning Fat Club in steep decline. 

Wallaby inside centre and Brumbies flyer Patrick McCabe is nursing his shoulder back to health having gone under the knife in Sydney on Tuesday morning. From all reports the surgery was a success and Pat will be aiming for a return to the paddock early in the Brumbies 2012 campaign.

McCabe has been one of Australia’s form backs in 2012, earning himself a reputation as a gap-proof defender. 

McCabe wasn’t the only one to have surgery this week. Chief Executive Andrew Fagan had some work done on a troublesome elbow and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Several Brumbies players, led by Nic White (who cheated by three weeks) started Movember on Tuesday and already the fluff is starting to show. Early favourites are Joe Tomane, Christian Lealiifano and Ben Alexander, who heads into his fourth Movember campaign.

Membership numbers are also trucking along nicely, with the new team in the commercial office working over time to bring in the bacon. 

Adding to that is a new social media plan the club is planning to unveil in the very near future, so log on the your Facebook and Tweets us today.
