The Reds and the Brumbies have already faced each other this year and the Brumbies won the first match 24-6 in Canberra.

The teams have met each other 21 times since 1996 and the Brumbies have won 17 of those matches. That means the Reds have won 4 times or 19% of their matches against the Reds.

The average score when the Reds play the Brumbies is : Reds 15 Brumbies 28.

This weekend the match will be played in Brisbane where the teams have met 9 times. The Reds have won 2 and lost 7 of the matches. That translates to the Reds winning 22% of their home matches against the Brumbies.

The average score when the Reds play the Brumbies is Reds 16 Brumbies 24.

The stats show that the Brumbies have dominated the Reds through Super Rugby but in recent times under Ewen McKenzie the stats are far more even.

Out of the last five matches between the teams the Reds have won three and the Brumbies two. The Brumbies have not won in Brisbane since June 2011.

Both teams will be coming off wins last week as the Reds beat the Chiefs in Hamilton and the Brumbies beat the Highlanders in Dunedin.

The more impressive result of those was the Reds victory over the Chiefs as they lead the New Zealand conference and they are the current champions.

The Brumbies victory over the Highlanders came after a home draw against the Southern Kings and a late win over the Bulls. Before last week their form had been wobbling a little and they struggled without Jesse Mogg.

The Reds form in recent weeks has been steadily improving match by match. The Will Genia - Quade Cooper partnership is also returning to it's best.

While the Brumbies won the first match this year between the teams it should not be forgotten that the Reds were are away from home, they were without Genia and James Horwill.

The Bookies have given the Brumbies a 3 point start for this Match - with an offer of a FREE $150 BET. This match will be close but the Reds at home should edge it. The Reds should win by 2.
