ACT Brumbies

Hailing from Australia’s capital, the ACT Brumbies were formed in 1996, and are now the most successful Australian side in Super Rugby history, having reached five grand finals, winning two. The side has also earned the title of Australia’s greatest Super Rugby dynasty. From 2000–2004 the Brumbies appeared in four finals and won two titles.

The Brumbies enjoyed a reasonable start to 2018, but a tough losing streak in the middle of the season effectively ruled them out of the finals hunt.

While the club arguably boasts a stronger list than last season, similar improvement from their Australian rivals has made them an unpopular pick to make it past the home-and-away stage of the season.
