Blake Enever will start in the second row for the Brumbies against the Force in Perth on Friday.
In the only change to the starting XV, Enever replaces Sam Carter, who has been ruled out after sustaining a medial ligament tear in his knee during last weekend’s clash against the Vodacom Bulls.
'We have had some good training sessions this week,' said Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham. 'Blake has been a solid performer all year and he has slotted well into that No 5 position during training.'
Brumbies – 15 Jesse Mogg, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Robbie Coleman, 11 Joe Tomane, 10 Christian Lealiifano, 9 Nic White, 8 Ita Vaea, 7 David Pocock, 6 Scott Fardy, 5 Blake Enever, 4 Rory Arnold, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Stephen Moore (c), 1 Scott Sio.
Subs: 16 Josh Mann-Rea, 17 Allan Alaalatoa, 18 Ruan Smith, 19 Jordan Smiler, 20 Jarrad Butler, 21 Michael Dowsett, 22 Nigel Ah Wong, 23 James Dargaville.
