Lachlan McCaffrey starts at No 8 in the only change to the Brumbies’ starting lineup for their semi-final against the Jaguares in Buenos Aires on Friday.
McCaffrey replaces Pete Samu, who picked up an injury during the side’s quarter-final victory over the Sharks in Canberra last weekend preventing the Wallaby from travelling.
With McCaffrey in the run-on side, Murray Douglas is in line for his 11th appearance of the season as he comes in on the bench.
Brumbies coach Dan McKellar has once again opted for a 6-2 split between the replacements.
Captain Christian Leali’ifano will make his 150th Vodacom Super Rugby appearance.
Brumbies – 15 Tom Banks, 14 Henry Speight, 13 Tevita Kuridrani, 12 Irae Simone, 11 Toni Pulu, 10 Christian Leali’ifano, 9 Joe Powell, 8 Lachlan McCaffrey, 7 Tom Cusack, 6 Rob Valetini, 5 Sam Carter, 4 Rory Arnold, 3 Allan Alaalatoa, 2 Folau Fainga’a, 1 Scott Sio.
Subs: 16 Connal McInerney, 17 James Slipper, 18 Leslie Leuluaialii-Makin, 19 Darcy Swain, 20 Murray Douglas, 21 Jahrome Brown, 22 Matt Lucas, 23 Tom Wright.
