Thomas du Toit returns to pack down at tighthead with John-Hubert Meyer shifting to the bench, and out on the wing, sees a rotational change with Kobus van Wyk replacing Sbu Nkosi.

The match is the Brumbies first on their tour of Australasia and Du Preez says they want to kick off the tour well.

“The Brumbies are a very good team. Their pack of forwards is really strong and that is where the game is going to be won or lost. We have to cancel that pack of forwards to be dominant and be in the game.

“We enjoy touring and there’s a great vibe in the team. Our training sessions this week have been good with some great intensity. It’s important for us to start this tour off on a positive note.”
