if they win this one then im sure they will be ten times as strong at home and pushing for that number 1 spot on top of the table

Big game this - with both normal hookers out some 29-year old no namer gets a run as will Faiangaa.

Despite this we should win a tough game and be back to dominate the cats in canberra!

I hope Smith stays at 7, he was amazing last week. Hopefully Larkham doesn't put up those bombs or if he does hopefully he gets them more accurate.

yep and tawake at 8 and heenan at 6.

I'd like to see samo back on the bench but I don't think he's even over there.

Is he even in our squad, I would have thought he would be at least on the bench at the start of the season.

Mr. Laxative
21-02-06, 07:57 AM
Yeah, he is but apparently Adam W-H is better - just give DK a go and we'll be wishing we didn't drop him last season!

JDV is back this weekend as is Marius Joubert after a very long lay off though he may just go back into Vodacom CUp to get his feet wet.

Anyways, JDV should tighen up the midfield a little and add a little flavour to our attack. One thing that concerns me is we haven't scored a try in the 2nd half this year boys need to pick the pace up in the 2nd half that is what cost us against the Tahs.

And it is about time Werner Greef ****** to the NH, he just can't hack it anymore, if he puts up one more useless up & under I will go insane!

Speak of the devil hes back to add some more power to our backline. Most likely he will take the reserve halfback spot so I guess Giteau to cover halfback. Samo could play in the backs if needed too.

BRUMBIES: Adam Ashley-Cooper; Clyde Rathbone, Stirling Mortlock (captain), Matt Giteau, Mark Gerrard; Stephen Larkham, George Gregan; Jone Tawake, George Smith, Daniel Heenan; Mark Chisholm, Alister Campbell; Guy Shepherdson, James McCormack, Bill Young. Replavements: Adam Wallace-Harrison, Nic Henderson, Julian Salvi or Patrick Phibbs, Gene Fairbanks, Joel Wilson, Radike Samo, Saia Faingaa.

Seems like both outside centers are coming in with an injury cloud. Both likely to play though.

Game has started.

I never knew Gerard has such a good punt. But then this is an Aussie team.............they all know how to punt.

Man that Stormers No14 is quick! He also roams a bit.

3 nil so far to the Stormers

The TRUTH
24-02-06, 05:59 PM
9-3 to the stormers

neither team can string 3 phases together because Steve Walsh wont get his stupid head off the telly

He's completely ruining this game and his 2m interpretation of the advantage rule is ridiculous.

I wanna watch RUGBY not Steve 'the poser' Walsh.

I knew he was a good kick but i had no idea he was this big a kick

He must have really worked on it pre-season because his kicking so far this year( especially last week) has been massive.

Gee Rathbone should have had a go at the corner. If he had scored that try it would have added to his anti Rathbone campaign lol! That was a great run indeed!

Game ends 15-15 Brumbies score 2 tries Stormers score 0000000000000000

Brumbies should have won that game Stormers never looked like scoring a try, but they had the ref on there side.

reminds me of the Brumbies v Bulls last week, the ref handing out penalties like they were All Blacks jerseys :P

I feel its a fair result in the end. Even though yet another SA team has gone try less the Stormers did threaten the line and if their handling was better they could have scored a few. Brumbies weren't as good this week compared to last week but good on them for hanging in there.

The Brumbies loved using that midfield move where they miss pass a few then pass back inside. I am surprised that the Stormers had no answer for it. Fantastic second try they scored when they used that move again.

Trust the Aussies to have the brains for these slick Brumbies moves.

And ain't it great seeing Gerrard and Rathbone back on the wings. These two were brillant in 04 and once again they are brillant in 06.

Again I think it necessary for the use of bonus points in a draw. If one team scores more tries than the other in a draw that team should get a bonus point - just to give them more an advantage for attacking rugby.

No, I am a very passionate brumbies supporter and I think we should have been rewarded for scoring more tries than our oppositon in a draw!

So if a team scores 3 tries in an attacking fashion in a draw, but the other team scores 4 tries by mauling it up the field in 20+ phases, should the first team get the bonus point because they played the more attacking form Rugby?

Oh yeah, and incase you missed it the first time.

Die.

You totally missed the point. Try reading his post again...

Fair result, Stormers dominated play for quite a bit but blundered some try scroing opportunities, Brumbies cameback well in the 2nd half.

But really with our backline we should be scoring a lot more trys! The only SA team that have consistanly looked dangerous has been the Sharks....

But the point of giving the team the extra point according to you is :

My point was what if Team A scored 3 tries in an attacking fashion, while Team B scored 4 tries, all from mauls and having 20+ phases leading up to it, than shouldn&#39;t Team A get the point as they played the more attacking Rugby?

And what if the roles was reversed, and the Brumbies scored all their points from the boot and the Stormers scored the tries, would you be coming here pushing your stupid idea still.

Besides, the Brumbies only have themselves to blame for letting the Stormers tie the game despite scoring more tries.

True, can the attacking bit - but aren&#39;t tries normally better to see than penalty goals. I would push for it if the brumbies had kicked the points because I hate boring football. Tries are good even if they are from mauls. Just see my point.

But my point is that just because you scored more tries doesn&#39;t mean you played the more attacking Rugby.

And if you score more tries than the other team, but only manage a draw its your fault for missing Kicks and giving away penalties which enabled the other team to pull it back for a draw.

Mr. Laxative

Screw the attacking bit, what if the team didn&#39;t score from pens though - what if they scored droppies. Scoring more tries is better for the game I think. Even if they are from mauling the ball - that facit can be amazing if done properly!

Penalties - whatever, what if they&#39;d been given out of range? Tries should be rewarded as to encourage teams not to slow the game down. Giving teams rewards for scoring tries will encourage them to do so becasue it will give them a better chance of making the finals and in a comp like the S14 you need all the points you can get.

It doesn&#39;t matter, its your fault for letting them tie it up, no matter how they do it.

And they do reward tries fool, haven&#39;t you ever heard of the Bonus point for scoring 4 tries in a game?
