Tuesdays's Thought

There is evidence that a Super Rugby clubs can go from highs to lows, but its the culture of it that truly matters.

The ACT Brumbies were for five seasons the competitions stronghold, but for nine years after showed no signs of mending what stopped them from re-achieving.

From the glory years of George Gregan, Stephen Larkham, Owen Finegan, Joe Roff and George Smith obtaining two championships between 2000 and 2005, to the brink of destruction with former coach Andy Friend sacked after just one match in 2011, a shift had to be made.

And that shift took place- a Super Rugby grand final was made, and if it was not for a lapse in concentration for only ten minutes, could well have been won.

This Saturday marks the greatest opportunity for the Brumbies to go one better again. The culture change has been implemented, and now it is time for the players to build on that.

When they run out onto the Canberra Stadium turf on Saturday night, they must do so in the same style as a year- a 24-6 one-sided win.

The young gun side must be fully loaded. They know they have what it takes.

The leaders in the side must continue the amazing success achieved last year, and that all starts this Saturday.
