Brumbies coach Jake White has made just one change to his starting side that will face the Blues at Canberra Stadium this Saturday afternoon.

Wallaby winger Joe Tomane has recovered from injury and will slot back into the number eleven jersey as Jesse Mogg shifts to fullback and Robbie Coleman is benched.

Meanwhile, on the wood, Fotu Auelua has been given the green light, having recovered from a hamstring strain he sustained during the three-week Test break in June. With Auelua back in the 22-man squad, Ita Vaea drops out of the side.

The match is a special occasion for one of the Brumbies' most respected veterans, Stephen Moore, who claims his 100th cap after ten years of Super Rugby.

A victory is crucial for the home side as it will guarantee the Brumbies a win in the Australian Conference and subsequently secure them a home play-off next weekend.
