  • Maddocks vs Banks should be fun.

    Brumbies forwards look far too strong though that Tahs loose forward trio looks very handy.



  • Brumbies should win this one pretty comfortably. They have a settled, experienced squad. Tahs will rip in for the first 50 or so but might well fall away after that.

    The battle of the 6s will be good to watch. Both Valetini and Swinton could be Wallaby candidates, both bruisers in the same mould.



  • Game not going quite as I expected. Tahs leading 13 - 5.



  • Make that 20 - 5.



  • Another good Aussie derby.

    Plenty of good young talent coming through for Aus.



  • Good finish after the Tahs controlled they final quarter, but a late try to seal it for the Brumbies.
