The Brumbies have made wholesale changes to their line-up for the Australia derby with the Melbourne Rebels.

Former Toulon No.8 Fotu Auelua will make his debut for the side, with Michael Hooper joining him in a new-look back row. Auelua's inclusion means skipper Ben Mowen will switch to the blindside and Ita Vaea and Peter Kimlin start on the bench.

Lock Scott Hardy and former Exeter prop Ruaidri Murphy also come into the pack, while coach Jake White has handed a first start to Tevita Kuridrani at outside centre.

The Rebels have made four changes to their line-up following the win over the Blues last time out.

All the changes come in the pack - with hooker Ged Robinson and lock Al Campbell coming into the side, while Jarrod Saffy switches to the openside and moves to the blindside Luke Jones.

Michael Lipman and Luke Holmes are both named among the replacements.

Brumbies: 15 Jesse Mogg, 14 Joe Tomane, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Pat McCabe, 11 Henry Speight, 10 Christian Lealiifano, 9 Nic White, 8 Fotu Auelua, 7 Michael Hooper, 6 Ben Mowen, 5 Sam Carter, 4 Scott Fardy, 3 Dan Palmer, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Ruaidri Murphy.
Replacements: 16 Anthony Hegarty, 17 Ben Alexander, 18 Peter Kimlin, 19 Ita Vaea, 20 Ian Prior, 21 Robbie Coleman, 22 Andrew Smith.

Rebels: 15 Kurtley Beale, 14 Lachlan Mitchell, 13 Mitch Inman, 12 James O'Connor, 11 Mark Gerrard, 10 Danny Cipriani, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Gareth Delve (capt), 7 Jarrod Saffy, 6 Luke Jones, 5 Hugh Pyle, 4 Al Campbell, 3 Rodney Blake, 2 Ged Robinson, 1 Nic Henderson.
