Brumbies ready to take the Top End

Brumbies players are preparing for their annual migration to the Top End with the team set to face the Western Force on Saturday, 4 February at Rugby Park in Darwin.

The match will be the first run for the new look Brumbies with 15 additions to the fulltime squad and a fresh coaching staff headed up by World Cup winning mentor, Jake White.

“I’ve never been to Darwin but from what I hear it’s a great place to visit, we are certainly looking forward to getting up there,” White said.

“It will be the first time I take this team as coach and even though it’s still two months off everyone is already excited.

“February is a good time of year for Super Rugby fans and we will be looking to set the pace for the start of the season with a win over the Force.”

The 2011 fixture against the Reds drew a bumper crowd and with several tempting ticketing packages on offer the Brumbies are confident of pulling in even more supporters to face the Force.

One of the more exciting options is the Grand Stand ticket, which doubles as a Brumbies Membership for the 2012 Super Rugby season. Every member will receive a pack including a hat and season guide.

In conjunction with the NT Rugby Union and the Northern Territory Government, the Brumbies have put together the following ticketing options.

General Admission: $20

Children Under 16 years: $5

Family Ticket (two adults and two children): $45

Grand Stand ticket: $55

In addition to the extensive ticketing offer, a merchandise tent will be set up in the Stadium car park offering a range of Brumbies apparel, hats, flags and jerseys.
