With not much to choose from this weekend, this should be the match of the round, between the two Australian teams who finished first and second in their conference last year.

There is a debut for Wallaby David Pocock while Clyde Rathbone makes his much publicised return to professional rugby after retiring 3 years back. This Brumbies team took a year last year to grow and will only get better as the confidence grows.

The Reds managed to get to the playoffs on 2012 when defending their title, and will be hard pressed to get there again this year, with two competitive teams in the conference in the Brumbies and Waratahs.

This should be a close encounter, as we come to expect from an Australian derby, but if yesterday’s match is anything to go by, the players will put their best foot forward at all times to get themselves in contention for the squad to face the British and Irish Lions.

Brumbies: 15 Jesse Mogg, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Andrew Smith, 12 Christian Lealiifano, 11 Clyde Rathbone, 10 Matt Toomua, 9 Nic White, 8 Ben Mowen (captain),7 David Pocock, 6 Peter Kimlin, 5 Sam Carter, 4 Scott Fardy, 3 Dan Palmer, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Ben Alexander.

Replacements: 16 Siliva Siliva, 17 Ruaidhri Murphy, 18 Colby Faingaa, 19 Fotu Auelua, 20 Ian Prior, 21 Joseph Tomane, 22 Robbie Coleman.

Reds:15 Mike Harris, 14 Dom Shipperley, 13 Aidan Toua, 12 Ben Tapuai, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Ben Lucas, 8 Jake Schatz, 7 Liam Gill, 6 Eddie Quirk, 5 Rob Simmons, 4 Adam Wallace-Harrison, 3 James Slipper (c), 2 Saia Faingaa, 1 Greg Holmes

Replacements: 16 Albert Anae, 17 James Hanson, 18 Ed O’Donoghue, 19 Jarrad Butler, 20 Nick Frisby, 21 Jono Lance, 22 Chris F’Sautia

  • Half Time: Brumbies 8 Red 6 . .. .Both kickers having an off day. Some promising breaks from the Brumbies – Reds defense solid though.
