Valetini to play 50th match for Brumbies

Wallabies back-rower Rob Valetini will play his 50th game for the Brumbies when they take on the Queensland Reds in Saturday night’s Super Rugby Pacific Round 7 match.  
 
The 23-year-old will become one of the youngest players in Brumbies history to reach the significant milestone, having made his debut as a teenager in 2018.
 
The side will see four changes with fullback Jesse Mogg set to make his first appearance in the Brumbies 15 jersey since 2015 in place of Tom Banks.
 
The remaining changes come in the front row with James Slipper in at loosehead prop, Folau Fainga'a at hooker and Allan Alaalatoa captaining the team from tighthead.
 
Darcy Swain and Nick Frost continue their partnership in the second row with Valetini.
 
Former Australian Sevens Cam Clark is in line for his Brumbies debut, the outside back completing Coach Dan McKellar's squad for the Reds clash.
 
The Brumbies and Reds clash will kick off at 7.45pm.
 
Brumbies: James Slipper, Folau Fainga'a, Allan Alaalatoa (c), Darcy Swain, Nick Frost, Rob Valetini, Jahrome Brown, Pete Samu, Ryan Lonergan, Rod Iona, Andy Muirhead, Irae Simone, Len Ikitau, Tom Wright, Jesse Mogg
 
Reserves: Lachlan Lonergan, Scott Sio, Sefo Kautai, Tom Hooper, Ed Kennedy, Nic White, Hudson Creighton, Cameron Clark
