Match preview:

The Brumbies and the Force are doing battle from the nation’s capital, as a prelude to Super Rugby. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 5pm AEST.

You could be forgiven for thinking this game was no more than a bronze medal game so to speak, but the teams won’t look at it like that, as pride goes on the line tonight from Canberra.

The Brumbies form leading into this game has been here and there, with large losses to Queensland and New South Wales, but played a strong second half to beat the Rebels 37-8.

As for the Force, well they’ve dropped off following a 72-point win to start the competition, with losses to NSW and Qld being their downfall. The Women from the west currently hold third place, but will surrender it with a loss in Canberra tonight.

In team news: the Brumbies make four changes, as Brittany-Lee Bedford takes over from Voleta Tupuola in the front row, and Charlene Gubb comes into the lock position for Canberra, while Jane Garraway replaces Remi Wilton.

For the Force, one change in the forwards, Tai Marshall comes in for Alex Bannon, and we have a major backline shuffle as Huia Swannell moves to inside centre.

Prediction
Force to be too strong in Canberra, but don’t expect a Round 1-esque scoreline.

Force by 11.
