The Brumbies will face the Reds in the first Quarter Final of DHL Super Rugby Pacific this Saturday night, when they host the Queenslanders for a consecutive week at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch.
Brumbies Hurricanes live stream starts on 4 Jun 2022 at 07:05 UTC time at Christchurch Stadium stadium, Christchurch city, New Zealand in Super Rugby, Playoffs - Rugby Union.
The fixture will be the fourth time the two sides have met during the Super Rugby play-offs, and their first knock-out encounter since 2014. Head Coach Scott Robertson has named his side, and it includes the return of All Blacks Codie Taylor, Richie Mo'unga and Jack Goodhue to start, as well as a 50th cap for loosehead prop, George Bower.
Taylor's inclusion at hooker is the only change in the starting forward pack this week, while Fletcher Newell is refreshed from a week off to provide tighthead cover for Oli Jager in the reserves.
Bryn Hall, who was a late withdrawal from the side on Saturday night after tweaking his back in the warm up, is fit to start at halfback this week, and will line up alongside Mo'unga at first five-eighth.
"Both sides will have learnt a bit about one another last week, and it's a pretty unique scenario to have back to back games against the same opposition. This is knock-out rugby though, and Queensland know what it's like to play in these big games, so we're taking nothing for granted with our preparation this week and we're going to need our fans right behind us in the stands for this one."
Kick off in the Brumbies match against the Hurricanes is at 7:05pm, Saturday 4rd June at Orangetheory Stadium in Christchurch. The match will be televised live on Sky Sport.
