  • Brumbies average 31 points in matches against Rebels in Canberra

Rebels vs Brumbies

The Brumbies entertain the Rebels at the GIO Stadium on Saturday 4 July. This is the first clash for the sides in the new Super Rugby AU competition and I'm backing the Brumbies to start with a bang.

Brumbies Form


The Brumbies made an excellent start to the 2020 Super Rugby campaign before it was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The side from Canberra won five of their six matches, with their final match before the break  on 15 March ending in a fine 47-14 victory over rivals the Waratahs at GIO Stadium.

The Brumbies' last five matches have all ended with them covering the -8 handicap while they managed to same feat against the Rebels earlier in the campaign.

Rebels Form


The Rebels will have mixed emotions from their six matches in Super Rugby earlier in the year. With three wins the Rebels will be disappointed they never managed to get at least one more.

The last time they took to the field was on 7 March 2020 against the Lions at AAMI Park in Melbourne. It was an decent performance as they ran out 37-17 winners but it was against a depleted Lions outfit..

The previous week, the Rebels traveled to New Zealand where they beat the Highlanders 28-22 at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin.

Rebels News


The Rebels will set up camp in Canberra two weeks ahead of the clash, as a spike in coronavirus cases in Victoria is a worry.

The last time the sides met was on 7 February 2020 in Super Rugby. The Brumbies ran out comfortable 39-26 winners at the GIO Stadium in Canberra.

Brumbies vs Rebels Match Up


Both the Brumbies and Rebels are fine attacking sides but it is the Brumbies forwards that give them the edge. The hosts should get the upper hand at set pieces which will allow their back-line to flourish.
