Sunwolves vs Brumbies Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Sunwolves take on the Brumbies at the WIN Stadium in Wollongong on Friday.

The match has been moved from Japan due to the current Coronavirus fears and forms part of a double-header in Wollongong, with the Waratahs taking on the Chiefs later in the evening.

The Brumbies enjoyed a bye last weekend, while the Sunwolves will wish they had a bye of their own, as they were demolished 62-15 by the Hurricanes at McLean Park in Napier.

Sunwolves Form & News


After a fine start to the Super Rugby season – beating the Rebels in Round 1, the campaign has completely fallen apart for the Sunwolves.

Last weekend they were torn apart by the Hurricanes at McLean Park in Napier, with the match ending 62-15. The week before, the Japanese side lost 64-5 to the Reds in Brisbane.

The Sunwolves have the worst defensive record in the competition this season, shipping 198 points in their 4 matches – which is a statistic the Brumbies will be salivating over.

Brumbies Form & News


The Brumbies will be fresh and raring to go after a bye last weekend. The Australian side will also be boosted by the fact that this is now a ‘home’ game, as it is set to take place on Australian soil. This comes after the cancellation of all sporting events by the Japanese government amid the Coronavirus issues.

A solid win for the Brumbies will see them go top of the overall Super Rugby table. Their last outing came in Round 4 and saw the Australian side take down the in-form Chiefs at the FMG Stadium Waikato in Hamilton. The match ended 14-26.

Pete Samu scored two tries in that victory – and his massive frame may be too much to handle for the Sunwolves close to the line.

The Brumbies have lost just one game this season. That defeat came in Round 3 at home against the Highlanders.

Sunwolves vs Brumbies Match Up


The reality is that the Sunwolves have big problems when it comes to their defence. They miss far too many tackles and their structure on defence is almost always fractured. This will delight the Brumbies as they have been clinical on attack this season, scoring 17 tries in their 4 matches. The Brumbies should have a lot of fun on Friday.
