The Brumbies host the Highlanders on Saturday and for the Brumbies this is a must win match. The Waratahs lost to the Chiefs and the Brumbies should see this as an opportunity to move up ahead of the Waratahs when the money end of the tournament comes in two weeks.


The Highlanders are playing for pride and like the Chiefs will want to upset the Brumbies to help their fellow New Zealand teams.
