Come on, Brumbies!

After a thumping quarter-final win over the Sharks last Saturday, our beloved Brumbies will battle the Argentinian Jaguares in the Super Rugby semi-finals this Saturday morning.

Can’t make it to Buenos Aires to cheer our boys on in person? Don’t worry, neither can we… because we are throwing a semi-final party to watch the game right here in Turner.


We are opening early and serving up breakfast and drink specials so you can join us and watch the semi-final big screen with stadium sound.



The RUC will open at 8am on Saturday 29th June for a 9.05am kick off.


Breakfast specials:

To accommodate for the 9.05am kick off time, we will be cooking tasty breakfast specials, including:

  • Argentinian eggs, three rough fried eggs, bacon, onion, herbs, paprika and toast – $ 12
  • Deluxe egg and bacon roll – $10
  • Smashed avocado on toast with bacon, fetta and salsa – $14


Drinks specials:

As well as serving up our usual suspects for those morning beer lovers, we have 2 drinks specials available throughout the morning:

  • El Latte Loco: Large latte w/ shot of Café Patron tequila – $11
  • The Hot Brumby: Large hot chocolate w/shot of Baileys – $9.5
  • Bloody Mary – $9.50



We are giving away a VIP package for the game, including:

  • The 4 best seats in the house for you and 3 friends,
  • Breakfast for the group, and
  • A welcome drink on arrival to get the party started.

All you need to do is upload a video of yourself on Facebook or Instagram with your best pronunciation of “Jaguares” and tag the RUC.
