    Brumbies ponder life after Larkham

    2017-05-02 19:48

    Cape Town - The Brumbies players are not letting the uncertainty over who will replace Stephen Larkham as coach next year distract them.

    Larkham is joining the Wallabies at the end of the season to become a full-time assistant for the national team.

    According to watoday.com, Brumbies assistant coach Dan McKellar is frontrunner for the job.  

    Initially it was thought that Dave Wessels was the leading candidate for the post but as he is still tied to the Force and because a decision will not be made in time on whether they or the Rebels will be axed from Super Rugby, the Canberra-based side have had to look elsewhere.

    Former mentor Laurie Fisher, who Left Gloucester on March 7 by mutual consent following a poor run of results, has also been linked with the job.

    But for the players it is all about the present and turning around their worrying mid-season slump which has seen them lose three on the trot, their latest setback coming in the 18-12 defeat to the Blues at home on Saturday.

    They will have a bye this weekend to refresh the legs and mind whereafter their focus will shift to the must-win encounter with the Lions on May 12 at Canberra Stadium.
