Wallaby back Pat McCabe returns to the Brumbies' line-up at inside centre to tackle the Kings after a five-month lay-off.
A series of injuries, including a small fracture to his neck and a strained hamstring, has kept the 18-times capped international out of action.
Now fully fit, McCabe will fill the number 12 jersey outside Christian Lealiifano who has been named at fly-half.
With Lealiifano at 10, Matt Toomua is out of the 22-man squad.
In the forwards, Siliva Siliva has been handed his first starting spot at hooker with champion rake Stephen Moore to start from the bench.
Returning to the starting XV from the bench is Fotu Auelua at number eight, with captain Ben Mowen moving to blindside flanker and Peter Kimlin to lock.
Former Springbok centre Waylon Murray will start for the Kings, coming in for the injured Hadleigh Parkes, who broke his arm against the Hurricanes last weekend.
As a result, Ronnie Cooke shifts to the wing and Murray partners captain Andries Strauss in the Kings midfield.
Scrum-half Nicolas Vergallo is also promoted from the bench and starts in place of injured Shaun Venter (bruised ankle) - another casualty from last week's loss in Wellington.
There are two changes to the front row as hooker Bandise Maku rotates with Hannes Franklin - who scored a consolation try when he came on as a replacement for the Kings - and prop Grant Kemp gets the nod, with Kevin Buys moving to the bench.
Two other changes in the pack sees Cornel du Preez back at number eight after recovering from a tight hamstring injury, which means Jacques Engelbrecht will be riding pine in the Aussie capital.
There's also a change at lock as Rynier Bernado partners vice-captain Steven Sykes in the second row.
Brumbies: 15 Robbie Coleman, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Pat McCabe, 11 Joe Tomane, 10 Christian Lealiifano, 9 Nic White, 8 Fotu Auelua, 7 George Smith, 6 Ben Mowen (c), 5 Etienne Oosthuizen, 4 Peter Kimlin, 3 Dan Palmer, 2 Siliva Siliva, 1 Ben Alexander.

Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Kevin Buys, 18 David Bulbring, 19 Jacques Engelbrecht, 20 Shaun Venter, 21 Marcello Sampson, 22 Elric van Vuuren.
