I wandered up to Canberra Stadium a few weeks ago for the Brumbies opening game of the Super Rugby season. The breeze rustled through the eucalypts that line the bike path which winds up from Dryandra Street to the stadium, I'm sure the light sweat which dampened the small of my back was from the afternoon sun rather than the incline. As I rounded the corner, just short of the tunnel, I could hear the occasional whistle from the 7s games which had already started, a precursor to the main game.
