Brumbies looking for Waratahs boost




The Brumbies have already turned their focus on to this weekend’s Super Rugby match against the Waratahs as a victory over the 2014 champions will give them an indication of how their season will go.

The Brumbies kicked off their Super Rugby campaign with a 52-10 hammering of last year’s Super Rugby finalists the Hurricanes but they have vowed not to get carried away.

The Canberra-based Super Rugby franchise have not beaten the Waratahs since March 2014 and have lost their last four matches to the Sydney side.

Against the Hurricanes the Brumbies scored seven tries which was the result of a brutal pre-season campaign and a new focus on playing with speed by head coach Stephen Larkham who has recruited sprint specialist John Pryor.

Centre Tevita Kuridrani says that while the Hurricanes result was very satisfying they are keen to keep evolving under Larkham and his new game plan.

“We stuck to our game plan so that was something very pleasing,” Kuridrani told the Canberra Times.

“We’re not going to get carried away, we know we’ve got a big game coming up against the Waratahs.”

“This is the main one.”

“There’s always a big build-up to this week, we always think if we can beat them we’ll have a good season. We’ll keep a lid on things and know that this is the main one.”

“Last year the Waratahs beat us both times and that was very disappointing. ”

“We’ll try our best to defend our home ground and make sure they don’t come here and win again,” said Kuridrani.
