Our morning of rugby concludes with the Brumbies hosting the Highlanders, in Canberra. Both teams have enjoyed better than expected starts to the season, with the Highlanders still unbeaten!

Jake White’s Brumbies have showed good character in the early weeks, and playing at home will give them the confidence to take this match.

The Highlanders will target this match as a must win if they are to be serious contenders in their conference, as the Brumbies are one of the weaker teams around.

  • Brumbies right wing Tomane showing plenty of gas to score 2 tries. He played schoolboy rugby with James O’Connor

  • Brumbies looking very dangerous with ball in hand. Lealiifano is really getting the backline going. Make no mistake Sharks have a very tough fixture next weekend
