Attention turns to Welsh attackers


After a short break following a gutsy win over the Rebels last Friday night, the University of Canberra Brumbies have turned their focus to Tuesday’s clash with the touring Welsh International side at Canberra Stadium.

Canberra hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Wales losing their last two games here against ACT sides.
 
But this Welsh team has arrived in Australia off the back of an impressive Six Nations campaign where they went through as undefeated champions.

University of Canberra Brumbies Hooker Anthony Hegarty was excited about the prospect of facing the Welsh having been a key performer for his side off the bench throughout 2012.

“This is a big chance for the Brumbies to show their true potential on a world stage. This Wales team will be looking for a big tour, particularly after their impressive Six Nations campaign,” Hegarty said.

“It’s always nice to play against International sides and the chance to do that here in Canberra doesn’t come up very often.

“I know all the guys up for selection are pretty keen to test themselves against Wales, they’re one of the world’s top teams and they’re sure to field some of their biggest names on Tuesday night.

Prior to taking on the University of Canberra Brumbies, the Welsh face the Wallabies in Brisbane on Saturday night.

It’s the first match of the tour and will go a long way to deciding who gets picked for the Brumbies game on Tuesday.
