Brumbies go bush
The Canberra Brumbies visited Trinity Catholic College Goulburn as part of their ‘Brumbies to the Bush’ campaign to thank and connect with the community. The players helped run a training session for students and put on a barbeque afterwards. They stayed to take photos, sign posters and jerseys and chat with staff and students.
