Rugby football is all about broship and mateship on the sports field. Rugby football has some rising stars, as this report shows. Their love of the game, makes them stars. If you’ve never been to Melbourne for a vacation, I totally recommend it. Wonderful people live there, the city is fun and festive with fine restaurants and exciting night life culture too with the most amazing fashion retail you’ll ever see too. In regards to ruggers, here’s a story then.

The Herald Sun writes: “The New Zealand Herald described the Rebels as “a hotchpotch of has-beens, never-beens and might-bes”.

“No self-respecting side with designs on the playoffs should lose to them, especially at home,” the paper said.

“Still, even the Rebels might not be the pushovers that were expected after they flubbed their lines in Round 1 against the Waratahs. They turned around and beat the Brumbies, albeit in the most fortunate of circumstances.”

The Rebels yesterday made only one change to the team that downed the Brumbies as wing/fullback Luke Rooney succumbed to a grade one abdominal strain. Captain Stirling Mortlock and flyhalf Danny Cipriani both trained without difficulty yesterday after missing Tuesday’s session because of slight soreness. The pair scored all of Melbourne’s points against the ACT.”

Alright if that made little sense to you… it all means that these dudes pictured above are all really good rugby football players. Let’s see what they’re made of when the jet on down to New Zealand this weekend to play the Waikato Chiefs. It’s good to see new faces of rugby football talent emerging in the world.
