2010 S14 – Game 23, Brumbies (24) v Lions (13) F/T

The Lions head on to Canberra this week after losing badly in Wellington. The Brumbies have themselves also just landed, but are on the up after recording an unlikely win over the Stormers in round 3. For the home side, this will present a golden opportunity to get 5 points under their belts against a severely weakened Lions team. Coach Dick Muir won’t admit it to anyone, but his decision to give his reserves a run speaks volumes about his own belief that this game can be won. Simply put, he has none.

Brumbies are going to walk this and if you don’t believe me, just go look at the Last Man Standing picks for this week!

Kick-off in Canberra is at 10h40 SA time

Brumbies: 15 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 14 Pat McCabe, 13 Stirling Mortlock, 12 Christian Lealiifano, 11 Francis Fainifo, 10 Matt Giteau, 9 Josh Valentine, 8 Stephen Hoiles (captain), 7 George Smith, 6 Rocky Elsom, 5 Mark Chisholm, 4 Ben Hand, 3 Salesi Ma’afu, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Ben Alexander.
Replacements: 16 Huia Edmonds, 17 Guy Shepherdson, 18 Justin Harrison, 19 Mitchell Chapman,  20 Patrick Phibbs, 21 Matt Toomua, 22 Tyrone Smith.

Lions: 15 Michael Killian, 14 Tonderai Chavhanga, 13 Walter Venter, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Dusty Noble, 10 Burton Francis, 9 JP Joubert, 8 Todd Clever, 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Willem Stoltz, 4 George Earl, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Charles Emslie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Replacements: 16 Hannes Franklin, 17 Heinke van der Merwe, 18 Franco van der Merwe, 19 Jacques Lombaard/Robert Kruger, 20 Jacques Coetzee, 21 Wandile Mjekevu, 22 Earl Rose

Referee: Steve Walsh (Australia)
Assistant referees: Vinny Munro (New Zealand), Angus Gardiner (Australia)
TMO: George Ayoub (Australia)

  • I was wondering if I was the only person totally frustrated by Steve Walsh and i started to think about the players and what would happen if they got totally pissed off with him and either didnt come back on the field at half time or said to him either give the whistle to someone else or we are walking off
    I remember when the “Rebel” NZ test team came here and there was a SA ref whos name escapes me now- decided all the SA teams needed his help to win. Midway through the game/test Hayden and Dalton went over to him and very politly told him that if he blew one more thing against the NZ side the whole team would walk off the field and get on the next flight to NZ It was said in the presence of other refs and touch judges
    The ref was replaced and the tour continued
    What would happen if that was done in the S14?

  • both the sharks and lions are in aus, so maybe they should get together during the week, dick can train the sharks backs, and plum can train the lions forwards, and they can get some good training against eachother.

    Petty my arse. We have to make sure we are not anywhere NEAR the firing line when the ammunition to shoot the bottom team to make space for the Kings starts getting handed out.

    That said. If we lose tommorrow without a BP then we will be below them on PD for sure.
