The Brumbies simply have to win here, with a bonus point, to force their way into the top four and hope to grimly hold on next week.

The Highlanders have been just one of a number of New Zealand teams to put in a string of very average results this year. They’ll be playing only for pride, but also to improve the semifinal prospects of their compatriots, the Hurricanes and the Crusaders.
