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.

  • @klempie (Comment 6) : No influence on the Sharks. Maybe actually a negative effect.

    No effect– The top Aus team will be 3rd on the table regardless of their overall position. Probably the Brumbies. So they should’ve won because they have little to no chance of og going 2nd or 1st overall.

    Negative effect– The Reds however have now moved higher up the table, where once no Aus team other than their conference winner was in with a chance of getting into the play-offs the Reds are now actually in with a chance.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 7) : yea not a good result for the Sharks, exept if they keep on winning….

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 7) : Wrong. If we are gunning for top spot in the SA conference, then we want to finish above the Brumbies. Otherwise we will finish third on the log and would have to travel if we make it to a semi-final. Passing the Brumbies and winning the SA conference gives us a home semi.

  • I feel it would be better for the Sharks to finish 6th than to finish 4th or 5th. Would have a easier play-off game. Semi will be away either way.
