Brumbies move Ashley-Cooper to wing

7:01 pm on 31 March 2011

The Wallabies star Adam Ashley-Cooper has been shunted to the wing with Matt Toomua to play fullback as the ACT Brumbies try to get their Super Rugby season back on track against the Highlanders tomorrow night.

The versatile Ashley-Cooper, who has announced he's joining the NSW Waratahs next year, will be filling his third position this season in the Invercargill match.

He played fullback last week in the narrow loss the Waratahs and outside centre for earlier matches, where he struggled to make his usual impact.

The Brumbies have won only one of their five matches, their worst start to a season.
