The Brumbies are at home to a battling Hurricanes team and even though the Brumbies themselves aren’t in top form, they will be aiming to take at least four points from this match.

The Brumbies are still without their influential fullback Pat McCabe and Adam Ashley-Cooper, after news that he will be moving to the Waratahs next season, continues on the wing after starting the season at centre.

The Hurricanes have one of the better looking backlines in the competition, but they are yet to fire, and Cory Jane, Conrad Smith and Ma’a Nonu will be looking to get some form ahead of the Trin Nations and World Cup coming up, as they are all, on current form, not in line for All Black selection

A difficult game to call, but if I have to choose a winner I predict the Brumbies to win by around 8 points.

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, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, 2. Huia Edmonds, 1. Ben Alexander
Subs: 16. Anthony Hegarty, 17. Dan Palmer, 18. Colby Faingaa, 19. Michael Hooper, 20. Patrick Phibbs, 21. Tyrone Smith, 22. Francis Fainifo

Hurricanes: 15. Cory Jane, 14. André Taylor, 13. Conrad Smith, 12. Ma’a Nonu, 11. Hosea Gear, 10. Aaron Cruden, 9. Tyson Keats, 8. Victor Vito, 7. Serge Lilo, 6. Jack Lam, 5. Jason Eaton, 4. Jeremy Thrush, 3. Neemiah Tialata, 2. Andrew Hore (Captain), 1. John Schwalger
Subs: 16. Dane Coles, 17. Michael Bent, 18. James Broadhurst, 19. Faifili Levave, 20. Chris Eaton, 21. Dan Kirkpatrick, 22. Charlie Ngatai

  • Can’t wait for the Canes vs Saders game. SBW to teach Nonu a huge lesson in Rugby 101!
