World Cup-winning former Springbok coach Jake White has wasted no time in leaving his mark on the Brumbies franchise.
The Brumbies' new coach, who has been putting his charges through their paces at Viking Park in Canberra, exposed the players to a full-contact session for the first time this week.
Having completed their pre-season fitness regimen last week, White has turned all of his focus to game preparation.
"We can't get them any fitter than what they are now, they can't get any bigger or stronger," White told the Canberra Times.
"I'm never going to be happy, I want it to be perfect and it's not perfect yet.
"But it's the beginning, the most important thing is everyone has had a hit-out, guys have come back from injury and they all look like they're ready to go.
"It's about getting them game fit, game wise and understanding what we want in game situations."
The Brumbies have three trial matches before they play the Western Force in the opening round of the season on February 24.
Wallabies Stephen Moore and Ben Alexander sat out Tuesday's session along with a handful of players carrying niggling injuries.
But White expected to have almost a full squad available to play in the first trial in Darwin.
White is starting to put together his starting XV, but spots are still up for grabs.
