Match preview:

The Brumbies host the Hurricanes Saturday night at GEO Stadium, Canberra. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 7:45pm AEST.

This is the match between capital cities. Both Canberra and Wellington have a population of 400,000 people. Both teams beat each other three times over the last six games.

After 16 rounds, head coach Dan McKellar has had little success for the Brumbies in his first year as head coach. His team was embarrassed by both the two New Zealand teams they faced.

Chris Boyd’s Hurricanes has not met expectations. Like the Brumbies, they lost their last two games against their New Zealand teams. Before that, the Hurricanes almost lost to the bottom feeding Reds.

The Hurricanes will use this match to rebuild their form model by beating Brumbies convincingly. The Brumbies have a different idea. Two rounds ago, they surprised everyone by beating the Bulls in altitude.

A week later, they dominated both territory and possession to deliver another win against an enterprising Sunwolves.

A win today would be their first back-to-back win at home in two years.

The three things I hope to see is a foot race between Tom Banks and Nehe Milner-Skudder, the back five gain-line battle, and to discover if either teams can rediscover their form.

Prediction
The Hurricanes have won their first game after the June Tests for three years in a row. This will be the fourth – the bookies agree 4 to 1 against the Canberrans. But we should expect a more threatening Brumbies as they start to stabilise their own game model.
