Match two and you guessed it, yet another Australian derby in this weekend filled with derbies! It’s the Force hosting the Brumbies, and even though we all know it is going to be a low scoring, boring affair, it does have some bearing on the bigger picture.

A win for the Brumbies will take them one step closer to securing the top spot on the Australian conference, and with that secure a spot in the play-offs. They have a tough encounter awaiting against the Waratahs next weekend, but close off the season against the Blues at home, which could be the big game for them.
