Crusaders (ranked number 1) take on the Brumbies (ranked 4th) at home. The Brumbies are really going to have to pull finger for this one… the Sharks and Bulls are coming up from behind are will be motivated to get a spot in the semi’s.
Haven’t heard of any injuries in the Crusader camp but the Brumbies have lost little Gregan for this one…

There’s a lot of interest in the outcome of this game… South Africa will be watching closely.

yeah giteau is being rested so that he can be right for the semi. heenan has had a bad dose of the flu and is on the bench.

brumbies will be doing it tough this week without some of their better players. they still have a decen forward pack but the backs have been decimated.

Man the Brumbies are clever....

....they know they are probably going to be in the semi so they are not showing their hand when they play the Crusaders in the final round robin. Instead they are watching what the Crusaders will turn up with and then in the semi they will present their real game plan to counter it when they bring on their big guns......

Will they be really clever when they are watching it at home next week?

You would've thought Nucifora's craptacular coaching with the Blues would've diluted your mancrush on the Brumbies a little bit.
