Biggest test yet

CANBERRA - Two penalty tries from dominant scrummaging in as many weeks means nothing to Brumbies and Wallabies tighthead prop Ben Alexander.

Not when you're about to pack down against the man once regarded the world's premier loosehead and the All Blacks' most capped prop (107) Tony Woodcock.

The Brumbies' scrum has experienced moments of success in recent weeks, but it will receive its biggest Super Rugby test yet when it takes on a monster Blues pack at Canberra Stadium on Friday night.

And while Alexander won't have to face the second most capped All Black since Keven Mealamu is out with a calf injury, the Blues front row still boasts current NZ prop and 130kg giant Charlie Faumuina.

The Brumbies front-row are no slouches themselves though.
