for all intents and purposes they were formed for the Super Rugby Comp, another way to look at it would be they dont have the same history as QLD or NSW...but yet another way is the Brumbies are the most successful AUS team....
When I read that the Brumbies were so-called rejects I chose them as my Super Rugby team. I've always had a soft spot for stories like that. That's how I picked out a dog at the pound, I chose the one that nobody else wanted. And he's been a great pet for the last 8 years.
From their Wikipedia page - The Brumbies were formed in 1996 to provide a third Australian franchise for the newly formed Super 12 (now Super Rugby) competition. It was predicted that the Brumbies, made up of so-called 'reject' – players not wanted by the other two teams – would perform poorly. Since then, they have enjoyed more success than all the other Australian teams combined, reaching six finals and winning two.
