Brumbies keep it steady

The Brumbies have named an unchanged team to face the Waratahs this weekend.

Head Coach Jake White said his side had prepared well through the week and was now ready to take on the Waratahs in Sydney. ‘At this stage there’s still a lot of rugby left for us, potentially we still have four games to play so in that regard it’s great to have been able to keep the same team together,’ White said.

‘To be fair to those boys they had a very strong first half last Saturday night. They’ve got 1069 Super Rugby caps and probably 400 Test caps, 11 Wallabies and they are a formidable opponent. Even though they’ve made some changes to their halves, they still have Wallabies on the bench and will pose a massive challenge for us.

‘We’ve got to focus on executing well, doing the things we’ve done well all year both defensively and in attack and things should take care of themselves.’
