Watch National Rugby Championship NRC Live Streaming 2014 Brisbane City vs Melbourne Rising match will be kick off at Ballymore, Brisbane, Saturday 06 September 2014 online, Time 15:00 AEDT and its broadcast Online.
Well, there’s big news coming out of the Brisbane City camp. It relates to a certain scrum-half, who has captained both his state and (briefly) country. He forms arguably Australia’s best scrum-base combination with another well known Reds player.
Oh, codsarnit, not more screwing around. Will Genia will be seen donning the Brisbane City jersey this weekend. This is great news, as the little general would surely be a welcome addition to the Wallabies squad if he proves his fitness over the course of some NRC matches.
The question, though, is what that means for Nick Frisby, who has been on fire in the first two rounds of action. Does he move positions, or simply shift to the bench? You would think they would do their best to accommodate both players, but the problem is both are very much specialists.
Rising are cruising right now, and we can expect a very similar team to the one that took the field last week to play on Saturday. That means we’ll get to see more of rangy fly-half Jack Debreczini steering them around the park. Combining with Tom English and Nick Stirzaker could spell another truckload or points for Rising, who have already managed games of 45 and 55 so far this season.
