The Brumbies have already qualified for the Super Rugby play offs and they have won the Australian Super Rugby Conference.

The Brumbies cannot finish the season on top of the standings but they can finish higher than the Chiefs if they don't beat the Blues.

In short the Brumbies have everything still to play for as a bonus point victory could get them a break next week and a home Semi-final.

The last three matches between the Force and the Brumbies have all been won by the Brumbies. Under Jake White the Brumbies have yet to lose to the Force.

The Force's last victory over the Brumbies was in April 2011.

Overall the Force have played the Brumbies 10 times since 2006 and the Force have won just three times and drawn once.

That translates to the Force winning just 30% of their matches against the Brumbies. Across all venues the average score when the Force play the Brumbies is Force 17 Brumbies 22.

The Force and the Brumbies have played each other five times in Perth and the Force have won one, lost three and drawn one at home.

The average score when the teams play in Perth is also Force 17 Brumbies 22 and the last time the Force beat the Brumbies at home in Perth was in May 2008.

At the time of writing the Force had not yet named their team to play the Brumbies but no real surprises are expected.

The Brumbies on the other hand have named a team that includes seven Wallabies making the team a near full strength team.

George Smith is named on the bench which - injuries aside - is about the only selection that weakens the team.

The Brumbies are the top Australian Super Rugby team and the Force are the last placed Australian team. The Brumbies were also the only domestic team to beat the British and Irish Lions.

The Bookies have given the Force a 10 point start for this Match - with an offer of a FREE $150 BET. The Brumbies have too much at stake to stumble against a team who have struggled against them. The Brumbies should win by 7+.
