S14 ’09 Game 81 – Brumbies (37) v Blues (15) F/T

The Blues take a trip down to Canberra for their last away game of the season.

Either team still has a slim chance of making the play-offs, while it seems likely that neither team actually will.

There is still some pride to be associated with being the best of the ones who didn’t quite make it.

Will the Brumbies be boosted by knowing this is their last home game of the season?

Or will the Blues iron out the kink that saw them suffer back to back defeats?

OR will “The hand of Goddard” influence the result

    If the Brumbies beat the Chiefs WITH a BP and keep the Chiefs BPless then they will be above the Chiefs.

  • @try time (history forgets losers) (Comment 90) : Nah bro. I personally know a kak load of SA artists, some of which who have been given a really hard time getting in to the States (visas) and then when they do they are expected to go it alone with no support base. SA subsidiaries of international record companies should be pushing our stuff to their parent companies but they don’t. Just Jinger is one of the best bands SA has ever produced and they are languishing in California with a few thousand record sales.
