The Rebels and Brumbies meet at the Leichhardt Oval in a crucial Super Rugby AU fixture on Friday. The Brumbies are clear at the top of the table while the Rebels currently occupy third position. With two comfortably victories over the Rebels in 2020 already, I can only see this one going one way.

Rebels Form


The Rebels lost their opening Super Rugby AU clash 31-23 against the Brumbies away but are unbeaten since. First they drew 18-18 against the Reds and then beat the Waratahs 29-10 before coming up trumps against the Western Force last weekend in a 25-20 win.

What is against the Rebels is that they have yet to feature at home this season and it does not look like they will at any point. Melbourne is in lockdown due to the pandemic so the Rebels will remain based in Sydney for the time being.

Rebels News


The Rebels are injury free but we could see a few changes after a disappointing performance last week despite victory. Frank Lomani will be pushing for a spot in the back-line as will Andrew Deegan who performed well off the bench against the Force.

Brumbies Form


The Brumbies are unbeaten in Super Rugby AU 2020 after a 22-20 victory over the Reds in Canberra last weekend.

Prior to last weekend the Brumbies beat the Western Force 24-0 and Waratahs 24-23 away. On the opening weekend of Super Rugby AU the Brumbies won 31-23 at home against the Rebels.

While their form has been a bit patchy at time the Brumbies forwards have been their dominant selves. Hooker Folau Fainga’a has now scored eight tries in his last eight matches including two against the Reds last time out.

Brumbies News


The Brumbies will remain largely unchanged with no reported injury concerns. Despite his heroics with a last minute penalty last week, Mack Hansen will likely remain on the bench.

Rebels vs Brumbies Head to Head


The Brumbies hold a 14-7 advantage over the Rebels in their last 21 Super Rugby matches.

The Brumbies won 31-23 at the GIO Stadium the last time they met in the opening round of Super Rugby AU.

Rebels vs Brumbies Match Up


This will be a massive battle between the two forward packs but the Brumbies should have the upper hand. Folou Fainga’a has been a try-scoring machine off the back of the driving maul and if the Rebels can’t stem the tide it could be a long 80 minutes on Friday.

Verdict

I'm backing the Brumbies to cover the -4 handicap in this clash. Folau Fainga'a should hold value in the try scoring markets once the odds become available.
