The Brumbies have announced their squad to play the NSW Waratahs in Sydney this weekend.

If they get the win they’re in as real contenders. A loss, well not so much.

The University of Canberra Brumbies have made two changes to their starting line-up, with Scott Sio named at loose-head prop and Scott Fardy returning from injury at lock.

Fardy hasn’t been seen in Brumbies colours since the South African block almost a month ago where he suffered and ankle injury, but has since recovered making his way through Canberra’s John I Dent Cup with Wests.

With Dan Palmer dropping from the University of Canberra Brumbies 22-man squad, Ruan Smith has been included on the bench for his first appearance in a Brumbies jersey.

Fardy in, Palmer out. I like the look of that.

Here’s the team:
