The second match this morning sees one of the exciting Australian derby prospects, after both teams got off to winning starts last week, and both teams keen to kick on and take control of the conference.

The Rebels are unchanged after they beat the Force last weekend, which gives the team the perfect platform to improve, especially on their first half performance from last week, and give their star players Kurtley Beale and James O’Connor the confidence to spark.

The Brumbies though will take plenty of confidence from beating the Reds in the opening weekend, after losing out to them in the last week of the regular season last year. This Brumbies team will be targeting a quick start and ending this weekend unbeaten in the Australian conference.

Rebels: 15 James O’Connor, 14 Lachlan Mitchell, 13 Mitch Inman, 12 Rory Sidey, 11 Richard Kingi, 10 Kurtley Beale, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Gareth Delve (captain), 7 Scott Fuglistaller, 6 Scott Higginbotham, 5 Luke Jones, 4 Hugh Pyle, 3 Laurie Weeks, 2 Ged Robinson, 1 Nic Henderson.

Replacements: 16 Shota Horie, 17 Paul Alo-Emile, 18 Cadeyrn Neville, 19 Jarrod Saffy, 20 Nic Stirzaker, 21 Alex Rokobaro, 22 Tom English.

Brumbies: 15 Jesse Mogg, 14 Joe Tomane, 13 Andrew Smith, 12 Christian Lealiifano, 11 Clyde Rathbone, 10 Matt Toomua, 9 Nic White, 8 Ben Mowen (captain), 7 David Pocock, 6 Peter Kimlin, 5 Sam Carter, 4 Scott Fardy, 3 Dan Palmer, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Ben Alexander.

Replacements: 16 Siliva Siliva, 17 Scott Sio, 18 Fotu Auelua, 19 Colby Faingaa, 20 Ian Prior, 21 Robbie Coleman, 22 Tevita Kuridrani.

  • I have Brumbies by 17, I must have been drunk when I made my picks, everyone knows an Aussie derby can never be that exciting

  • Rebels are looking alot more competitive than they did last year, that being said they still shaky in the set piece and are realy relying on Beale and Oconor .

    Brumbies looking well drilled .

    Just something worth a mention -that between these two sides there seem to be some potential at lock and looseforward .Rebels number 4(Pile) has been impressive for me .Leliafano and Rathbone also worth a mention.

  • @Talent (Comment 13) : Very impressed with Rathbone’s return.

    No surprises with the Brumbies being well drilled. JW signature.

  • Ill wait for the Waratahs to play before I decide who’s going to top the Aus conference ,but the Brumbies aren’t a bad bet.

    Robbie Deans is going to be happy with what JW has done with the Brumbies .Some of their players are looking likely candidates for new test caps: Mog ,Tomua ,Mcilan & Leliafano have been awesome .

    Brumbies have physically hurt the Rebels in a way we are used to seeing South African team do to Aus teams :lol: I think you can attribute it to set piece dominance and thundering rush defense and spot tackling

  • And the idea that the Brumbies play a boring brand of Rugby isn’t true. It is just more structured ,within that structure is some great worked moves.
