Injury worries for the Brumbies
January 30, 2000
ACT Brumbies' preparations for the upcoming Super tournament have been severely disrupted by a spate of injuries to crucial players.
They arrive in New Zealand this weekend for a couple of warm-up games without Stephen Larkham, skipper Brett Robinson, Mitch Hardy, Graeme Bond, Damien McInally, Jim Williams and James Holbeck.
Larkham, so pivotal in the Wallabies' World Cup triumph, is recovering from minor knee surgery and is not certain to play in his side's Super 12 opener against Auckland in Canberra on February 25.
