Round 9: Brumbies v Cheetahs



Brumbies (ranked 4th on the ladder) take on the Cheetahs (7th). Brumbies have had a week off and will be looking to put in a solid performance after a shaky game against the Chiefs on their last outing. Expect to see the Cheetah's to put in some extra yards after going down to the Tah’s last weekend.
This is a must win situation! Will we recover and get those 4 points (perhaps 5 :D )? Hopefully yes!
Nup, Brumbies will win this one. With Paul more or less back to full strength and no other injury concerns we will have to much speed in the backs. Forward contest will be interesting.
Is Giteau playing??

Doesn't matter anyway coz the Brumbies will win this one easy.

No CJ this week Rassie :D thats a big loss
Brumbies have not been playing like the legends that they should be with the names that they have, Mortlock has been the only one that has been a real stand out, Bernie (sill have his effort against the Chiefs in mind) has not been what I'd call a game breaker... if the Cheetahs can play with some sense of attack then winning is a possibility (and if they lose I bet it won't be by a big score).

The Brumbies shouldn't have any problems winning lineout ball. They have 4 jumpers.
Lineout was a problem but the Brumbies are slowly getting back to their best.
Attack looked awesome in the second half. One worrying sign is Adam Ashley Copper, hes great in attack apart from his Cullen moment, but under the high ball he doesn't look safe at all. I hope he works on that before the finals.
