The Brumbies entertain the Reds at the Gio Stadium in a Super Rugby AU fixture on Saturday. There is great value on the Brumbies to beat the handicap, while on-fire hooker Folau Fainga'a is a fine punt in the tryscoring market.

Brumbies Form & News


The Brumbies looked a lot better last weekend when they took down the Western Force 24-0 in Sydney. The win saw them move to the top of the Super Rugby AU log. After three fixtures, the Brumbies are unbeaten.

In their opening match, the Brumbies defeated the Rebels 31-24 before winning a nail-biting clash against the Waratahs 24-23.

The Brumbies are likely to get stronger as the competition progresses, so this will be a good test of their credentials against the Reds.

Fly-half Bayley Kuenzle will continue at fly-half with Noah Lolesio still injured. Another change could see James Slipper return at prop ahead of Allan Alaalatoa.

Reds Form & News


The Reds are also unbeaten in Super Rugby AU. They currently occupy second on the table, just behind their next opponents, the Brumbies. They started their season with a 32-26 win at home over the Waratahs before drawing 18-18 with the Rebels in what was a classic finish to the match.

In their last game, the Reds fought back after going 14-0 down to beat the Western Force 31-24 at home. The Reds did not feature last weekend as they were handed a bye.

Jordan Petaia could make his much anticipated return from injury this week after undergoing a shoulder operation in February. If he is passed fit it is very likely that he’ll start off the bench.
