ACT Brumbies' Dan McKellar says Canberra overachieves in producing Super Rugby talent "It's a chance for guys who haven't played a lot of minutes at Super Rugby level this year to push for selection for the back end of the season and also provide opportunity for guys that have played well oakley sunglassed in the John I Dent Cup," McKellar said.
"We've got this trip then it's back to club rugby before the season resumes, so the players won't have de conditioned from a match point of view. "It's a good opportunity to freshen up physically and mentally, so come the end of the season the boys are fresh for the Reds and Chiefs and then finals." Former Brumbies coach Jake White introduced a policy in 2012 that players must play their club rugby in Canberra and despite coming under criticism at the time, McKellar says the proof is in the pudding. "It's been proven in the last few years with the number of local players coming through in Jordan Jackson Hope, Joe Powell, Tom oakley special issue Staniforth, Les Makin, and Tom Cusack started here, so there are a number of guys who have done the hard yards here in the club comp," McKellar said. "The Canberra comp has certainly improved with the Brumbies guys in it, but it just depends because there's always that carrot these days of going to play overseas and I suppose guys aren't as patient as they used to be back 10 15 years ago. "To get to go over to Singapore and experience what it's like and play professional rugby I think is a great reward for those club boys after how they've performed this year." McKellar coached Brisbane first grade before arriving in the capital in 2011 and said the ACT John I Dent Cup oakley bottlecap sunglasses holds its own as one of the premier rugby competitions in Australia. "The difference between Brisbane and Sydney and Canberra is probably just the depth which is natural due to their big populations, whereas Canberra standard issue oakley is a big country town really," McKellar said. "So I think we overachieve to a certain extent with a seven team club competition and I think the teams in the top four, if they were to be put into Sydney and Brisbane, they would compete well without doubt.
"Certainly when I was Tuggeranong we beat Sydney University and Sunnybank in the Australian Club Championships, so I think we proved that back then. McKellar said it will be nice to get his first taste as head coach away from the Super Rugby spotlight, but emphasised he's not in charge at Brumbies headquarters just yet. "I'm pretty relaxed to be honest, it's not Super Rugby so it won't have that intensity and it's good to get away and lead the group but I'm just filling the seat for Stephen for a week or two," McKellar said.
