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.
