Brumbies Focus on Defence

THE Brumbies have set themselves a goal of conceding under 20 points a game and becoming the best defensive unit in Super Rugby in 2018.

Under new head coach Dan McKellar, the Brumbies are refining their attacking structure following the departure of Stephen Larkham, who has joined the Wallaby coaching staff on a full-time basis.

The Canberra-based franchise had the competition’s best defensive record in 2015, but dropped to seventh in 2016.

They improved to third last year and defence coach Peter Ryan has designs on being the best in 2018.
