The Brumbies are the only Australian Super Rugby franchise with multiple titles (including NZ and South Africa), as they go into the game as favourites on home soil in Canberra, despite a final round loss to the Reds in the regular season.

LIVE pre-game coverage begins from 6.50pm AEST, with FOX RUGBY expert panel including Super Rugby title winner George Gregan, Wallabies legends Tim Horan and Phil Kearns, expert analyst Rod Kafer and the voice of rugby in Australia Greg Clark.

George Gregan:

“I think the Brumbies will win due to their extended recovery and preparation for this Final. They will be extremely motivated to win at home in from of their families and fans, in what has been an exciting Super Rugby AU competition. The Brumbies as club has a high expectation when it comes to playing in Finals. This will mean so much to the players, coaches and management as they have world extremely hard, since November 2019, to put themselves in a position to be crowned Champions.”

Tim Horan:

“Playing in any rugby Final, momentum is one the key ingredients if not one of the most important aspects, and the Reds have had that over the last 5 weeks. All of their young stars won’t have any fear and Brad Thorn has got his team humming.”
