    New thread for a different game makes sense if you ask me.

    A couple of surprises there with Strachan and Medrano starting, but I don't mind both of them. As long as Medrano can achieve parity in the scrum, he provides a lot more than Holmes around the ground.
    Strachan has looked very good off the bench and with Kearney not yet recovered I don't mind giving him a crack at 15 with Macgregor on the bench if required.
    Good to see FLW starting also - he gives us the abrasiveness we need in the forwards similar to what Valetini gives the Brumbies. Would be good to squeeze Anstee in as well, but tough to drop Stander, Thrush or Timani at his expense, and Anstee's very good against tiring legs.

    A very strong looking Brumbies team however that we haven't matched up well with previously this year. Hopefully now that we're clicking a bit more, it'll be a different story this time around.

    Safe to say we're not going to have a party at set piece like we did last week!

    Happy with the selections.

    It was on the cards that Fergus would replace Tim, as Tim has looked much better in matches he has come off the bench and Fergus will be chomping at the bit to get a lot more time on the field.

    Midfield as expected with Kunidrani out, interesting move bringing in Strachan who would be a largely unknown quantity to the Brumbies and could be something that helps add something to the mix that we have not yet had.

    WF website has Tim Anstee starting and FLW on the bench.

    Interesting.

    I would say that we'd want Fergus' bulk starting to combat the maul

    Not that Tim hasn't been great, but horses for courses, simple size can sometimes tip the scales

    He was pretty atrocious the last time we had him, after I'd talked him up before the game

    Name one who wasn't generally pretty shit

    Not just when the Force were playing, but generally.

    The reffing hasn't been great this year
