Frustrated Brumbies chief executive Phil Thomson says the players are doing their part as the club desperately searches for ways to bring back Super Rugby crowds.
As the debate around player management policies and rest weeks continues across the Tasman, Wallabies management are taking a different approach to their All Blacks counterparts, writes Sam Bruce.
