Waratahs, Brumbies play for Dan Vickerman Cup
Cape Town - The
Waratahs and Brumbies will play for the Dan Vickerman Cup on Saturday
when they face off in their Super Rugby fixture in Sydney.
Vickerman, who died last month aged 37, played 63 times for Australia.
He played for both the Brumbies and Waratahs in his career and New South
Wales chief executive Andrew Hore said the Cup was a fitting tribute to
"Dan was one of those team-mates who was admired by all that knew him
and I know both sides will be wanting to take home the Dan Vickerman
Cup," he told AAP.
"It is another way for the rugby community to recognise Dan's contribution to rugby."
Brumbies chief executive Michael Thomson added: "Dan was an
instrumental figure at both teams and the introduction of this trophy is
a fine way to honour his memory."
Kick-off is at 10:45.
