The first of two matches in Australia, and we have another derby on our hands. This should be an interesting one though, as the Australian conference depends on the outcome of this match.
The Brumbies could wrap up the conference with a win over the Reds here, but one has to feel that it would not be that easy.
The Reds are still waiting on their injured players before announcing their starting team, and need a good victory over the conference leaders to get back into contention for that play-off spot.
Brumbies: 1. Ben Alexander, 2. Stephen Moore, 3. Dan Palmer, 4. Scott Fardy, 5. Sam Carter, 6. Peter Kimlin, 7. Michael Hooper, 8. Ben Mowen (c), 9. Nic White, 10. Zack Holmes, 11. Joe Tomane, 12. Pat McCabe, 13. Andrew Smith, 14. Henry Speight, 15. Jesse Mogg.
Replacements: 16. Anthony Hegarty, 17. Ruaidhri Murphy, 18. Leon Power, 19. Ita Vaea, 20. Ian Prior, 21. Robbie Coleman, 22. Tevita Kuridrani.
