Brumbies Help

ACT Brumbies co-captain Stephen Moore joins teammates Henry Speight and Tevita Kuridrani  by auction his jersey to help Fijians affected by Tropical Cyclone Winston.

Moore will auction the jersey he wore in the Brumbies 52-10 demolition of the Hurricanes at GIO Stadium last Friday which is also his 150th Super Rugby match.

He is the only player along with Nathan Sharpe, who has played 150 Super Rugby Australian matches and 100 Qantas Wallabies tests.

Brumbies ‘Bula Boys’ Speight and Kuridrani pledged their support for their country  as they kicked started their first game of the Super Rugby with a fundraising drive.

Buckets were passed around as fans, families and friends donated what they could to help raise money for Fijian families.

It was a memorable moment for Kuridrani who hails from Namatakula, Nadroga, as he drew first blood scoring in the 15th minute. The other scorers were Tomas Cubelli, David Pocock, Scott Fardy, Stephen Moore, Josh Mann-Rea and Sam Carter.

It was a double celebration for Speight and Kuridrani as the  Brumbies fans raise $20,382.

The jerseys are currently being auctioned on http://allbids.com.au/brumbies where their bids stand at $860 (Kuridrani) and $1,010 (Speight), the auction will be closed next Thursday.
