Brumbies change one for Force
Cape Town - The Brumbies coaching staff have made one change to their side to play the Brumbies in Canberra this weekend.
South African-born Ruan Smith will replace Ben Alexander at
tighthead prop which sees Alexander drop to the bench. Smith will earn
his 50th Super Rugby cap after playing most of his professional career
at the Force and the Brumbies.
When Stephen Moore runs out onto the pitch he will become the most
capped Australian player, as he overtakes Western Force legend
Nathan Sharpe as he will get his 162nd cap.
Christian Lealiifano will co-captain the Brumbies with Moore.
