Brumbies make three changes
Sydney - Brumbies captain Ben Mowen has been named to take on his old Waratahs team-mates in Saturday's big Super Rugby derby, after spending a
week on the sidelines nursing a sore neck.
His inclusion is one of three major changes coach Jake
White has made to the starting line-up which beat the Lions in
Johannesburg last week.
White has also brought back prop Dan Palmer, who was
rested for the Lions match, and Sam Carter, who's been promoted from the
bench to pair with Scott Fardy at lock.
Palmer will resume his usual position at tighthead prop, moving Ben Alexander to loosehead for the clash at Canberra Stadium.
The changes push Peter Kimlin and Ruaidhri Murphy to the
bench, while Scott Sio and Leon Power have been omitted from the 22-man
