*Forecast Odds

Handicap
Brumbies (-12.5) 9/10

Sunwolves (+12.5) 9/10

Brumbies
The men from Canberra have enjoyed a solid month beating the Lions at home, the Stormers away and the Blues at home. There only defeat in their past four games came away against the Jaguares and they still managed to pick up a losing bonus point from that fixture.

This run of solid form has seen Dan Mckellar's men move level on points with the Conference-leading Rebels. And with the Rebels playing the Reds this weekend, a bonus point victory against the  Sunwolves could well see the Brumbies shoot up to the top of the standings.

Sunwolves
The Sunwolves have endured a far less fruitful couple of weeks, which have seen them pick up a host of losing bonus points but that elusive third victory of the season just won't come for the Japanese franchise.

The 'Wolves had a marvellous chance to register that third win last weekend but ill-discipline cost them dearly against the Reds with the Queensland side edging the game 32-26. The loss also came at a cost for the Sunwolves as in-form winger Semisi Masirewa coping a one week ban for a high tackle,

Verdict: Sunwolves (+12.5) 9/10 *Forecast Handicap
They may be missing one of their stars but I still fancy the 'Wolves to put up a real fight here. I'm rather confident they'll be able to stay within a very handy 'cap.
