The Brumbies host the Western Force at GIO Stadium in Canberra on Friday. A win for the hosts will see them finish top and qualify for the Super Rugby AU final with a game to spare. The Force have struggled and remain winless in the competition.

Brumbies Form


The Brumbies have made relative light work of the inaugural Super Rugby AU tournament. They look in good shape to finish top of the table and earn their place in the final on 19 September.

The side from Canberra have won 5 of their 6 matches, only losing to the Rebels in Round 6. That encounter ended 30-12 to the Melbourne-based side.

In their clash last weekend the Brumbies scored 6 tries on their way to a thumping 38-11 victory over the Waratahs at GIO Stadium.

A win against the Western Force will guarantee the Brumbies top spot and a place in the final.

Lock Cadeyrn Neville signed a new deal in the week, so he will be eager to impress once again. Try scoring machine, Folau Fainga'a will start off the bench this weekend.

Western Force Form


The Western Force have done a lot of huffing and puffing in their first season back at the top table of domestic rugby.

Plucky displays in the early rounds of Super Rugby AU were encouraging, but performances have since fallen apart - resulting in 6 defeats from 6 fixtures.

Last weekend, the Reds gave the Force a 57-5 thrashing at the Cbus Super Stadium. Things were looking good for the Force at half-time, but their defensive resolve collapsed in the second half, with the Reds scoring 6 tries in the second 40.

The Force cannot finish anywhere other than rock bottom, even if they somehow manage to pick up maximums in their last two matches.

Brumbies vs Western Force Match Up


While the Brumbies have not always been at the top of their game in Super Rugby AU, they are the competition's best side. 

The Western Force seem to have lost all their early-season resilience in recent matches, so the Brumbies should not have any problems in brushing them aside at home.
