The Brumbies host the Waratahs in what should be a cracking match at GIO Stadium on Saturday. Three points separate the two sides on the table and victory for the Waratahs could see them leapfrog the favourites.

Brumbies Form

The Brumbies have not reached their usual heights during Super Rugby AU but still top the table. Usually you’d expect the Brumbies to outperform every side in the competition but they have not been at their best.

Their first defeat of the Super Rugby AU season was always coming after two narrow victories. They first saw off the Waratahs 24-23 thanks to a last minute try and then the Reds suffered a similar fate as they went down 22-20 thanks to a last minute penalty.

In their last match the Brumbies came crashing down to earth with a 30-12 defeat to the Rebels. The pressure is now on if they want to win the Super Rugby AU title.

Brumbies News

The Brumbies should be at full strength after enjoying a bye last weekend. Folau Fainga’a has been scoring plenty of tries but is ruled out.

Waratahs Form

The Waratahs had been in horrid form all year but they have picked up their form in the last two weeks. They smashed the Reds 45-12 in a superb performance before beating the Western Force 28-8 at the weekend.

The visitors are now just three points behind the Brumbies and victory will see them leapfrog the Canberra-based outfit. 

While their last two results have been good, the Tahs’ know they had the Brumbies number in their last fixture but threw the game away at the end.

Waratahs News

With no reported injuries the Waratahs are unikely to make many changes. They have been in flying form but a couple of changes could keep the squad fresh.

Brumbies vs Waratahs Match Up
