The Brumbies have made three changes to their team that drew with the Force last weekend, to take on the Stormers on Saturday morning in Canberra. Rocky Elsom was ruled out for the remainder of the season earlier this week after suffering an ankle injury and will be replaced by Mitchell Chapman.

Ita Vaea is back in the eighthman jersey, replacing Julian Slavi, who shifts to the side of the scrum.

The Brumbies have had a horrid season so far and will be looking forward to ending it on some form of high before trying again next year under Jake White.

There are a few players worth watching in this line up though, with Matt Giteau always a danger on attack, and the young Pat McCabe is fast becoming a stand out star in this team, so the Stormers will have to keep an eye on him.

Brumbies: 1. Jono Owen , 2. Stephen Moore , 3. Ben Alexander , 4. Ben Hand , 5. Mark Chisholm , 6. Mitchell Chapman , 7. Julian Salvi , 8. Ita Vaea , 9. Josh Valentine , 10. Matt Giteau , 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper , 12. Christian Lealiifano , 13. Tyrone Smith , 14. Henry Speight , 15. Pat McCabe

Replacements:16. Anthony Hegarty , 17. Jerry Yanuyanutawa , 18. Peter Kimlin , 19. Michael Hooper , 20. Patrick Phibbs , 21. Robbie Coleman , 22. Andrew Smith
