A lot goes on the line tonight at Brookvale Oval when the Melbourne Rebels meet the Queensland Reds. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog from 7:05pm (AEST).

After the Brumbies, these are the form teams of Super Rugby AU. Let’s start with Melbourne. Backed to finish second in Super Rugby AU, they played their first game last week. A tryless first half left them in the lurch, and despite an improved second 40, they couldn’t get the win down in Canberra.

Their first five-pointer didn’t come until the 58th minute, at which point they were trailing 24-6. Due to COVID-19, they’ve spent the last couple of weeks on the road and will give up home advantage for at least two games, including tonight’s match-up with the Reds.

The Reds started strongly with a victory against the Waratahs. While NSW are a pretty average team, in years past the Reds wouldn’t have had the fight to beat them. That’s all changed now, and they’ll even start slight favourites tonight.

The Reds typically win the battle up front, but the pressure is on them to convert that into tries tonight against a Melbourne team with an accomplished backline. The Queenslanders boast the best back row in Australia, so if they can win the ball back from the ‘hosts’, that’ll give them a huge advantage.

In team news, the only change for the Rebels is Campbell Magnay slotting into 13, pushing Reece Hodge back onto the pine. As a result, Andrew Deegan misses out this weekend.

The Reds have gone with the same squad as last round.

Prediction
It’ll be close, these are two evenly matched teams. The Reds are in better form, but again, it’ll be down to whether or not they can dominate up front. If not, the Rebels backs will run rings.

Reds by six.
