Brumbies news: Smith makes his way to the starting team via the Brumbies bench where he has featured alongside twin brother, Ruan, since Round 2. Scott Sio''s ankle injury has forced the first change to the Brumbies front-row in 2014 and is one of four changes to the starting side which beat the Waratahs in Canberra last weekend. Leon Power has also been forced out through injury, moving Scott Fardy back to lock and Jordan Smiler into the starting side at blindside flanker. Joe Tomane comes back from injury to replace Henry Speight on the wing, while Andrew Smith slides into the team at outside centre in place of Tevita Kuridrani, who has returned to Fiji for a funeral. The bench is packed with potential debutants, as Jack Whetton (lock), Michael Dowsett (scrum-half) and Stephan van der Walt (wing) all line up to make Super Rugby appearances. Ruaidhri Murphy has also been recalled to the Brumbies bench as cover for prop, with the rest of the 23-man squad intact from last week''s win.

Stromers news: Head coach Allister Coetzee has made five changes to his team, one of which is positional, with Gio Aplon shifting from wing to full-back as Tagicakibau starts on the left wing. Peter Grant comes in at fly-half for Demetri Catrakilis, who drops to the bench. Up front, fit-again tighthead prop Frans Malherbe (toe injury) takes over from Brok Harris - with the latter reverting to the bench - and Michael Rhodes (shoulder) is back in the mix as the lock replacement for De Kock Steenkamp, who flew home with a groin injury earlier this week.

Welcome to Canberra for the Stormers vs Brumbies clash! The Stormers have really struggled this season and are up against a side who are starting to show that life after Jake White is not completely bleak. Should be a fantastic contest!
