Team news Blues prop Charlie Faumuina is back to full fitness and will start. Steven Luatua shifts from flanker to lock, but the Blues haven't quite managed to shake their injury curse with Rene Ranger out due to a groin strain. The left wing position will now be claimed by Hadleigh Parkes.

Team news The Brumbies have been buoyed by the return of wing Joe Tomane and number eight Fotu Auelua. Jesse Mogg moves to full-back and Robbie Coleman to the bench.

Welcome Hello and welcome to Canberra Stadium for our coverage of Saturday's first Super Rugby's clash.
