‘Thor’ in their Side

Michael Chieka announced his extended 38 man squad for the Bledisloe Cup and has left out players from the Brumbies who are still in the Super Rugby play-offs.

He should probably bank on having them available from Friday evening after they have played the home (???) quarter final against the Hurricanes.

He has also left out Quade Cooper and added 11 uncapped players.

He will, no doubt be chuffed to have Kurtley Beale available.

One of the uncapped players is Taniela Tupou – better known everywhere as ‘Tongan Thor’.

If you’re wondering why Chieka picked ‘Thor’ – this is what he did to All Black Lima Sopoaga in the game against the Highlanders on Friday –


He did something similar to another All Black, Liam Messam, back in February –



The coach will have taken note of how the Lions surprised the ‘Men in Black’ in June and whilst the Wallabies play a different game, don’t be shocked if you see a ‘rush’ defence used by the men in Gold!
