Cubelli adapting to life with Brumbies

Date published: March 9 2016

Brumbies scrum-half Tomás Cubelli believes that his teammates are getting use to him howling Spanish words at them during matches.

The Argentinian international was recruited from amateur club Belgrano and is committed to the Canberra franchise until the end of 2017.

Cubelli, 26, has made 45 test appearances for his country since making his Test debut in 2010.

"I'm putting in hard work to try to get good combinations with my teammates [on] the field," Cubelli told the Canberra Times.

"Sometimes it goes out as a Spanish word. But at the same time they're getting used to some Spanish words.

"Yes [they can understand me], the scrum-half is always trying to say things that are obvious so the forwards or other guys know."

"When you're tired on the field, someone has to do it. Sometimes it's easier to understand when you're playing rugby rather than speaking."

Cubelli admits that he enjoys an expansive brand of rugby, however the scrum-half is positive that he has the ability to adapt to whatever each opponent has to offer.

He said: "We've played two different types of games, I have to focus on other aspects and keep working the running game if the coach likes it."

"So if the game demands another thing, I can do it. Sometimes there's more opportunities to run, it depends on the defences. I need to my insert myself into games when needed."

The unbeaten Brumbies travel to Perth on Saturday to face the Force.
