Chiefs (8th on the ladder) have had a week off and travel to Canberra to face a ****** off Brumbies (4th) outfit... Can't see the Brumbies going down in this one (then again I didn't think that they would go down to the Blues either)

They lost to the Blues! The Blues.

Chiefs have a good chance.

Chiefs by 6.

Brumbies also have a few injury concerns... Git will most probably be out

Chiefs have a good chance but the favorites are Brumbies. Chiefs are very tough at home soil, in away games....nothing to impress. Anyway, let`s wait to see the line ups but IMO Brumbies will win this one

Brumbies are definitely the favourites... I see this though as a different sort of game though...

Chiefs’ (because of Byron I HATE YOUR GUTS... ) are the underdog's... Brumbies being the ONE DIMENSIONAL force that they are... will go down due to them being predominately white (yes, a little known fact - even George Gregan is white - a lot of people over look this most peculiar fact) will lose due to superior black folk having the sporting edge on common white folk.

And remember - you heard it here first.

Pfffffffffffffffttt.... you put a World XV together and the majority will be white.

All Blacks best players= Mccaw and Carter both white

Thats the Blues problem , too many black guys not enough brains


White Man > World :P

hmmmm....i dont think carter is completely 'white'

Easy tiger... yes, white men must play a part in rugby, a very important part... the winning formula is the yin and yang theory... intelligence and desire combined with brute force and desire.

I agree with you 100% using the 2 players you mentioned above... Carter at 1st5, it's his judgement (even Tana has praised him on being the one that on his command can unleash hell) that can put a backline into action. Ritchie is different though... he utilises a balance of interpretation of rules, will power and physical strength, objectives that combine thinking and physical prowess...

Thinking and brute force and knowing how to manage that to a desired result is the current winning way... if it wasn't for Rogers I’d say that is why NZ is the dominant factor in rugby (although I think Rogers may actually be black... the signs are there. Until I've finished my research I have nothing to add ABOUT MATT ROGERS BEING BLACK).

Lets have a racial draft

Brumbies will win this one - we are just going to be too powerful at home... then again, what happened last year? Oh that's right 17 injuries, that's why we drew.

brumbies were completely useless last week against the blues. chiefs defintely in with a chance if they play to their game and prevent the quick ball the brumbies base their whole gameplan on

Chiefs will take this one out due to Byron being out of the team and more importantly 'Stirling' is a really stupid first name.

The rest of the Chiefs season depends on whether they win or lose this game. This is the real test whether they are semi material or not.......beating the Brumbies at the fortress.

Well that certainly didn't happen... but they still managed to get away with a win! Very lucky if you ask me though.

If Bates hadn't done that retarded pass in injury time which allowed the Brumbies and Rathbone to make that break they could've won.

There were a tonne of chances that both sides bungled pretty badly throughout the match I thought... if they weren't playing eachother, I'd wager the other top ladder teams would have beaten them both by 20.

Brumbies played crap again , if they could have just found touch they would of made it alot easier on themselves

Look out when they get there act together.

You have to admit now that Mortlock is far better than Turinui

He&#39;s probly been the best player in the Super14 this year.

C&#39;mon take ya Tahs cap off for a minute and say it.. :P

In all honesty I haven&#39;t been much of a Mortlock fan for a while... I think he&#39;s actually been pretty inconsistent over the last couple seasons. Turinui is getting better all the time though... Oldman Mortlock isn&#39;t, and for the record, Hewat has had a better season than him so far IMO.

Injuries have hampered his last few seasons but theres been nothing inconsistent about him so far this year.

When the Brumbies have been in trouble he&#39;s the guy that takes the ball and makes that crucial break ,clutch kick or game winning try.

I&#39;d take him over any 13 in the World and lately he&#39;s really devolped into a great leader.

I&#39;d even go one step further and say he should be given the Wallabies captaincy at the end of the year with Gregan likely to lose his spot to Cordingley.

Neither team played technically well, but hell the atmosphere was amazing. There&#39;s just something about afternoon games and just judging by the noice I&#39;d had never guest there where only 17,000 people there.

The ref, again, was terribly disappointing. One organisation or another needs to work out something.

25-03-06, 08:20 PM
The turning point was when Donald went for a drop kick instead of pushing for the try. The Chiefs wre up by 2 points and they really needed to score a try o it would force the Brumbies to score points at least twice to take the lead. But they just took the 3.......gave up that territory with just being 5 ahead........Brumbies score one more time and win instead of needing to score twice.

All in all the Bumbies deserved to win because the game was evenly matched.....the Brumbies just edging the Chiefs out on the nerve factor.

25-03-06, 09:23 PM
These Brumbies aren&#39;t looking as smooth as they usual would at home. At least they are still winning but I suspect up against the Tahs and Crusaders they will struggle even more.

Mr. Laxative
25-03-06, 11:20 PM
Yeah, Larkham and Gregan are still playing well, but something is lacking. It&#39;s not the coach - I am certain of that. I think we are missing the Joe and Walks factor and our line-outs are poor. I can&#39;t see what the problem is, we have plenty of tall players some taller than Viks and JH but we&#39;re just not taking them as we used to. One positive we can take out of the game though is that our scrum was awesome! Brutal! I think we forced three 90 degree turns and 1 or 2 tightheads. Amazing.

And what about Stirlo&#39;s kick from 60 metres out after the half-time siren. He din&#39;t get it, but geeze he was unlucky. It had plenty of distance - just out to the right - AMAZING! And he just had a stunner overall, definately the best Australian 13 at the moment.

Scores:
Brumbies 28 (Stirling Mortlock, Clyde Rathbone, Mark Gerrard tries; Mortlock 2 con, 3 pen)
Chiefs 26 (Simms Davison, Sitiveni Sivivatu tries: Stephen Donald 2 con, 3 pen, dg).

Lucky win for the Brumbies... there shold have been a penalty right in front in the last 2 minutes but the Ref called it knocked on... brumbies hand knocked it on.
Good game from Mortlock, and agree he is the inform Australian center although Larkham me thinks added nothing... over rated for sure.
Rogers>Bernie.

As for the Chiefs big ****house performance from Ranby, missed a tackle that allowed a try and has no idea of how to pass in the tackle, ****house.
