The Rebels host the Brumbies at the Leichhardt Oval in what should be an exciting Super Rugby AU clash on Friday. The Brumbies are unbeaten in this years competition and have already defeated the Rebels twice this season.

While this is a Rebels home clash they will be playing in New South Wales. It looks unlikely that they will play any matches in Melbourne this season due to the pandemic outbreak. This should suit the Brumbies with no real home ground advantage.

Rebels Form & News


The Rebels went down in their Super Rugby AU opener 31-23 against the Brumbies away, but have not lost since. First they drew 18-18 with the Reds and then smacked the Waratahs 29-10. The Western Force were their next victims last weekend in a 25-20 victory.

The Rebels are injury free but we could see a few changes after a disappointing performance last week despite victory. Frank Lomani will be pushing for a spot in the back-line as will Andrew Deegan who performed well off the bench against the Force.

Brumbies Form & News


The Brumbies have not lost in Super Rugby AU 2020, with their last win a 22-20 success over the Reds in Canberra last weekend.

Before the Reds win, the Brumbies took down the Western Force 24-0 and Waratahs 24-23 away. On the opening weekend of Super Rugby AU, the Brumbies claimed a 31-23 victory at home against the Rebels.

While they have struggled to maintain 80-minute performances as a team, the Brumbies' forwards have come to the rescue time and again. Hooker Folau Fainga’a is in immense form, scoring eight tries in his last eight appearances - including two against the Reds in their last meeting.

The Brumbies will remain largely unchanged with no reported injury concerns. Despite his heroics with a last minute penalty last week, Mack Hansen will likely remain on the bench.

Rebels vs Brumbies Head to Head


The Brumbies have a 14-7 advantage over the Rebels in their last 21 Super Rugby meetings.

The Brumbies claimed a 31-23 win at the GIO Stadium the last time the sides met, which was on the opening weekend of Super Rugby AU.

Rebels vs Brumbies Match Up


Both sides are very strong in the forward department, so that is where the match will be won or lost. Folou Fainga’a is a try-scoring machine, so it wouldn't be surprising if he is the difference between the sides.
