All eyes will be on the Highlanders as they travel to Canberra to take on the ACT Brumbies with a Super Rugby Trans-Tasman finals spot on the line. Tune into all the action from the nation’s capital with live scores on The Roar from 7:45pm (AEST).

Having finished second-last in the Super Rugby Aotearoa tournament, the Highlanders have their destiny in their own hands heading into the final round of the Trans-Tasman competition. 11 points clear of the third-placed Crusaders, but locked on 18 points apiece, the Dunedin-based team will likely face a nervous weekend regardless of the result.

However, they could scarcely have been given a tougher fixture with which to stake their claim. The Brumbies have an imposing record at their GIO Stadium fortress, last week’s thrilling 12-10 win over the Hurricanes a prime example. With their own Trans-Tasman season all over bar the shouting, no doubt Dan McKellar’s men will want to play the role of final-shaper for the second successive week.

The return of talismanic skipper Aaron Smith from his All Blacks-imposed resting for last week’s crushing win over the Waratahs gives the Highlanders’ attack a much-needed boost, but there are precious few other changes for the Highlanders from their Round 4 team. As for the Brumbies, Noah Lolesio will be rested as a precaution after suffering an injury during the win over the Hurricanes, while the highly-touted Billy Pollard will make his Super Rugby debut off the bench as the reserve hooker.
