Canberra – On Sunday, Super Rugby log leaders Brumbies face the Crusaders who are determined to claim a playoff spot.

The Brumbies are sitting comfortably on top of the log with 40 points having only lost one game this season.

But two draws against the Southern Kings and the Reds have put a dent in their dominance. And against the Crusaders, Jake White’s charges will hope to solidify their place at the top.

But it will be a challenging game for the Brumbies -- the Crusaders are on a two-game winning streak and will hope to make it three.

They are six points behind the Blues on the edge on the playoff zone and a good performance could see them gain some valuable ground.

Kick-off is at 07:05 from the Canberra Stadium.
