Brumbies coach Jake White has opted for consistency, naming an unchanged team to face the Waratahs in Sydney this Saturday.

The Canberra side were able to return home unscathed, following their 28-17 victory over the Western Force last weekend.

The Brumbies will take the field with 609 caps, still 459 short of their opponents, the Waratahs, who boast 1068 caps in their starting line-up for Saturday's clash.

White said his side has prepared well throughout the week and was now ready to take on the Waratahs on their home turf in Sydney.

“At this stage there’s still a lot of rugby left for us, potentially we still have four games to play so in that regard it’s great to have been able to keep the same team together,” he said.

“The Waratahs had a very strong first half last Saturday night. They have 1069 Super Rugby caps and probably 400 Test caps, 11 Wallabies and they are a formidable opponent.

"Even though they’ve made some changes to their halves, they still have Wallabies on the bench and will pose a massive challenge for us.

“We have to focus on executing well, doing the things we’ve done well all year both defensively and in attack, and things should take care of themselves.”

Brumbies:

1. Ben Alexander, 2. Stephen Moore, 3. Dan Palmer, 4. Scott Fardy, 5. Sam Carter, 6. Peter Kimlin, 7. Michael Hooper, 8. Ben Mowen, 9. Nic White, 10. Zack Holmes, 11. Jesse Mogg, 12. Pat McCabe, 13. Andrew Smith, 14. Henry Speight, 15. Robbie Coleman.

Replacements: 16. Anthony Hegarty, 17. Ruaidhri Murphy, 18. Leon Power, 19. Ita Vaea, 20. Ian Prior, 21. Tevita Kuridrani, 22. Cam Crawford.
