Really up to the Brumbies' fans to manage a thread, it's their home game.

Pics are easy to link to... if you google for images, click on the one you want to bring it up, then right click and 'copy image link' or 'copy image address', then paste that into the image function here...Image.

This match could define whether the Highlanders are a genuine threat to the other larger, better resourced SR teams over the next two seasons. Apart from their continued persistence with Tomkinson over Gilbert, I believe it is their strongest available team at this time. Solid tight five, with Renton doing a great job in Frizzel's place making a superb loose trio they should be able to get parity up front, and hopefully have an edge in the loose. The midfield has worked hard to become less porous, and Nareki and Ioane have been very good lately. The brilliance of their backline overall, may see them edge the Brumbies on the team sheet.

Wallabies Nic White, Irae Simone and Tom Wright have all been named for the Brumbies. Lachlan Lonergan will again start at hooker in an unchanged front row with Wallabies stalwarts Scott Sio and Allan Alaalatoa. Darcy Swain and Nick Frost complete a solid tight five. Rory Scott returns to the backrow at openside flanker and will combine with Rob Valetini and Henry Stowers in the loose. Nic White will partner Bayley Kuenzle, while Ikitau and Simone are a dangerous midfield. Wright, Hansen and Tom Banks complete a handy lineup.

While it is difficult to see the Highlanders helping their points differential, they certainly can win this one, but I predict a real arm-wrestle for the first 30 minutes as both packs look to dominate. If the Highlanders can start well, then suffocate the Brumbies as they did the Crusaders in SRA, anything could happen, but the priority will be to win the game... and who knows... maybe the Brown/Dermody innovations will throw a hand grenade into the SRTT calculations.

The Brumbies are beyond $3 at the Aussie TAB. Serious value for a quality outfit playing at home.

Go Brumbies! The Highlanders are my 2nd favourite NZ team, but I'd be very happy for them to draw or lose this match. Or at the very least not score a BP win. Canberra is going to be freezing and I hope the Brumbies perform well. Sorry Highlanders fans but my first loyalty is to the Crusaders and that means I hope your team loses.

Wallabies should play White at 10, better kicking and distribution than JOC , Lolesio and To'omua
