The Rebel’s who are to enjoy home ground advantage have won 1 of their last 3 matches while the Brumbies have been victors in 3 of their last 3 outings (one of those being against weak opposition). Of their most recent victories, the Rebel’s was more fluent and at a higher pace yet the Brumbies won by a greater margin in a more technically challenging bout.

Prediction: Brumbies to win.
