Highlanders Named For Their First Australian Match.


The first matches against Australian teams should fall on ANZAC weekend. This weekend holds great importance to both countries and will be proudly acknowledged when the Highlanders take on the Brumbies at 2 pm (4 pm NZT) on Sunday 24th April, on the final day of the inaugural Super Round. 

The Super Round will see ten teams gathering in Melbourne for one big weekend of Super Rugby (the Moana Pasifika v Force game has been postponed due to COVID19. The Highlanders will play on day three (Sunday) of the Super weekend, with the opening round on Friday night against the Chiefs and the Waratahs. 

The game will undoubtedly be another tough battle, with the Brumbies having won seven out of their eight games this season. They are top of the Australian conference and are second overall behind the Blues. 

Highlander’s Head Coach, Tony Brown, is aware of the challenge the Brumbies present. “As we enter the Australian leg of the competition, we start with one of the best performed Australian teams. So, naturally, we want to take that next step we have been searching for over the last few weeks, but we understand the size of the Brumbies’ challenge.” “They are one of the front runners in the competition, and we will need to take all the opportunities we create in Melbourne to be successful.” 

“We don’t get to play many daytime games these days, so we are looking forward to that experience; it should be an awesome weekend of footy.”
