Chiefs 3 

The Chiefs have named their team to play the Brumbies at Canberra Stadium in Canberra this Friday with six changes to the side that lost to the Crusaders.

The Anzac day fixture will see the Chiefs field a side with six changes to the starting line up and four changes to the bench.

Mahonri Schwalger will start at hooker and will be joined in the forwards by Ross Filipo who gets his first start for the year.

Nick Crosswell and Sam Cane will be starting flankers with Liam Messam moving to No 8 and Augustine Pulu at halfback.

Tevita Koloamatangi comes onto the bench and is joined by halfback Brad Weber and Dwayne Sweeney who has re-joined the Chiefs after two years playing in Japan.

James Lowe returns from a knee injury to take his place on the bench.

Looking ahead to the match Chiefs’ coach Dave Rennie said, “It is special to be playing a match against an Australian team on ANZAC Day. It is a hugely important day for our two countries.”
