The second match on Friday in Super Rugby Rd.12 is in Melbourne where the Rebels host the Brumbies in a battle for the top spot in the Australian Conference.
The Brumbies currently lead the Australian Super Rugby Conference but they could be overtaken by the Waratahs or the Rebels this weekend if they don’t win this.
The Rebels are having their best season yet and led the Australian Conference for almost a month prior to last week’s bye in which both the Waratahs and Brumbies overtook them. The Rebels have played 9 matches and won 5.
The Brumbies have played 10 matches and won six to date. They have played 5 matches away from home and won 3. The Rebels on the other hand have played four matches at home and won two.
Overall the Rebels have played the Brumbies 10 times in Super Rugby and they have won 3 matches and lost seven. This means the Rebels have won 30% of their matches against the Brumbies.
The teams have met five times in Melbourne and in their home city the Rebels have won twice and lost three times. The average score when the Rebels host the Brumbies is Rebels 21 Brumbies 25.
The Brumbies won the last match between the two teams in Melbourne. However the last time these two teams met was in Round 10 of the 2015 competition at GIO Stadium. On that occasion the Rebels defeated the Brumbies 13-8.
The Rebels have been boosted by the return of Mike Harris for this match. He is one of three returning experienced players as Colby Fainga’a and Lopeti Timani also return to the side.
Harris returns to the side at fullback for the first time since he suffered a quad injury in the Rebels opening round game against the Force in Perth. Fainga’a and Timani also return from injury.
Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham has named an unchanged team for this match which means that they will have the experienced front row of Scott Sio, co-captain Stephen Moore and Ben Alexander packing down in the front row while Rory Arnold and Sam Carter are the starting locks.
Scott Fardy, David Pocock and Jarrad Butler make up the backrow while Tomás Cubelli and co-captain Christian Lealiifano are the halves.
Robbie Coleman and Tevita Kuridrani pair up in the centres while James Dargaville and Nigel Ah Wong will start on either wing, Aidan Toua is the fullback.
The Rebels have won their last three matches against Australian opposition and are undefeated against their fellow countrymen in the 2016 season thus far.
