The ‘Canes have won six of their seven matches, only coming up short against a powerful Chiefs side. They beat the Blues 28-24 in Auckland last weekend.
The Brumbies, on the other hand, lost to the Rebels in Melbourne 19-17 in what can only be considered as a shocking defeat, as the Rebels have often been touted as the worst Australian side in this year’s competition.
The Hurricanes have shown a bit of mercy, giving the likes of TJ Perenara a rest. But their strength in depth is such that they are able to welcome a fresh Cory Jane into the side, who will be looking to up his try tally for the season.
Watch out for Aidan Toua for the Brumbies, who has made the third most running metres in the competition (602) as well as Chris Alcock who has made the fourth highest amount of tackles with 73.
But even relentless tackling should not prevent a Canes onslaught, with Beauden Barrett likely to dictate the game once again from the fly-half position.
This fixture has always been a close encounter on the Super Rugby calendar. There is no doubt that the Hurricanes will be looking to gain revenge on the Brumbies side following last year’s deflating 52-10 loss away from home in Canberra.
This is the ninth time the Hurricanes will be playing at McLean Park in Napier, the first match was in 1996 against the Lions (then known as Transvaal) and the last was in 2015 against the Highlanders, in both cases the Hurricanes came out on top.
Last time the teams met: The Brumbies thrashed the Hurricanes 52-10 in Canberra in the opening round of fixtures last year. Tries from Tevita Kuridrani, Tomas Cubelli, David Pocock, Scott Fardy, Stephen Moore, Josh Mann-Rea, Sam Carter and 20 points from the boot of Christian Lealifano ensured a comprehensive victory for the men from the capital. It was upfront where they won the game, dominating at scrum-time and constantly putting their opponents on the back-foot.
