The early surprise team of the tournament, the Highlanders, take on the disappointment of the season so far in the Brumbies in a game that should be rather entertaining.

The Highlanders are at home after their bye and face a Brumbies team that have had a torrid time all season, made even worse by their coach Andy Friend getting the boot.

My prediction is a handsome victory for the Highlanders.

Highlanders: 15. Ben R Smith, 14. James Paterson, 13. Kenny Lynn, 12. Shaun Treeby, 11. Siale Piutau, 10. Colin Slade, 9. Jimmy Cowan, 8. Nasi Manu, 7. Alando Soakai, 6. Adam Thomson, 5. Tom Donnelly, 4. Jarrad Hoeata, 3. Chris King, 2. Jason Rutledge, 1. Jamie MacKintosh (Captain)

Replacements: 16. Mahonri Schwalger, 17. Haloni Aulika, 18. Josh Bekhuis, 19. Nick Crosswell, 20. Aaron Smith, 21. Tony Brown, 22. Robbie Robinson

Brumbies: 15. Matt Toomua, 14. Henry Speight, 13. Andrew Smith, 12. Christian Lealiifano, 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10. Matt Giteau (Captain), 9. Josh Valentine, 8. Ita Vaea, 7. Julian Salvi, 6. Peter Kimlin, 5. Mark Chisholm, 4. Ben Hand, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, 2. Huia Edmonds, 1. Ben Alexander

Replacements: 16. Anthony Hegarty, 17. Dan Palmer, 18. Colby Faingaa, 19. Michael Hooper, 20. Patrick Phibbs, 21. Tyrone Smith, 22. Francis Fainifo

  • I actually think this game could go either way. But I picked the Landers by 2.

  • Landers should win this one. Not having a coach is just as bad as not having a kicker.
