Wallabies winger Henry Speight will bring up his Super Rugby century in one of four changes to the starting side made by Dan McKellar for the visit of the Jaguares on Sunday afternoon.

The flying Fijian will also claim his 100th appearance Brumbies, joining an exclusive list of only ten players to have achieved the feat for the club.

There’s a return in the second row for captain Sam Carter, who leads the side outright in the absence of co-captain Christian Lealiifano, with the centre taking a planned break from Super Rugby to undertake a period of regeneration after taking part in every match thus far.

Kyle Godwin who will slot into the inside centre role vacated by Lealiifano.

Scrumhalf Joe Powell returns to the starting fifteen after a two-match absence, trading places with Matt Lucas who takes a spot on the bench.

There are three more changes on the bench, with Mees Erasmus and Darcy Swain poised to win their first Brumbies caps as replacement prop and lock respectively.

The Brumbies have only ever played the Jaguares once before, and never in Canberra, having tasted a 39-15 success over the Argentineans in Buenos Aires last year, the second leg of their overseas tour.
