Mowen moves to 8

Ben Mowen will captain the Brumbies from the No 8 position due to an injury to Fotu Auelua.

Auelua suffered a heavy concussion against the Hurricanes last Friday and is unavailable. Mowen’s move to No 8 sees Peter Kimlin coming in at blindside flank.

Coach Jake White has also reinstated scrumhalf Nic White in the starting line-up.

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