Waratahs prop Benn Robinson will win his 130th cap in Saturday's Super Rugby derby with the Brumbies in Sydney.

Robinson will move level with Al Baxter and just six behind the franchise’s leading cap-holder, Phil Waugh.

Robinson will be joined in the front-row for the match by Sekope Kepu in the only change made by coach Michael Cheika.
