Matt Toomua keen to stay, but Brumbies may struggle to keep squad together

News.  Photos contributed by Brumbies Rugby. Playing in the Grand Final- what does this moment mean to the players?  MATT TOOMUA
??I remember watching the 2004 final as a 14-year-old with my dad in Brisbane. To think I?m a part of the next one is quite amazing. However, winning the cup and brining it home for Canberra in our 100th birthday would be extremely special to me. It?s really exciting, it?s surreal in a way but we?ve got to get over that to get a result and not get over-awed by the occasion. We?re realistic about it, we have done something special but the job?s not finished.??

Chris Dutton Brumbies star Matt Toomua has declared his intention to re-sign with the ACT club.
