The Brumbies travel from South Africa to Canberra to host the Stormers this week.
The Stormers have made a dismal start to their tour, but will hope to put one over the jetlagged Brumbies who have just returned from South Africa.
A loss for the Stormers will mean Rassie Erasmus will have to do some magical math and then be quoted on Monday as saying their season is STILL not over, although I suspect, if the Stormers lose, it will be the “other” Erasmus doing the talking in future.
Will the Stormers salvage some pride from this match?
Or will the Brumbies show that a three week tour of South Africa is a breeze and propel themselves up the log?
