Life on the road for Rebels

Fiji Sun - - SPORTS -

Can­berra: The Mel­bourne Rebels are pre­par­ing for life on the road with no end in sight as of­fi­cials scram­ble to find an in­ter­state base and a way for play­ers to be with their fam­i­lies.

It comes af­ter they dropped their Su­per Rugby AU opener to the ACT Brumbies to the tune of 31-23 at Can­berra Stadium on Satur­day night.

The Rebels look set to shift their home game against the Queens­land Reds to Brook­vale Oval on Fri­day night, with the squad likely to stay in Can­berra, where they were based for a week lead­ing into round one, un­til Wed­nes­day. Brumbies cap­tain Allan Alaala­toa says ev­ery­one in­volved in rugby should be thank­ing the Rebels and West­ern Force “for the sac­ri­fices they’re mak­ing to be away from their fam­i­lies to make this comp run”.
