The Brumbies will face the Sunwolves at WIN Stadium after the match was relocated amid coronavirus fears.

The decision was announced on 28 February, and is one of two matches that SANZAAR has relocated, that were due to be played in Japan during March, to minimise the risks associated with coronavirus. This follows the Japanese Government’s decision to postpone sporting events in the country for at least the next two weeks.

The Brumbies and Sunwolves were due to meet in Osaka on 8 March but the match will now take place on Friday 6 March 2.45pm before the NSW Waratahs host the Chiefs at the same venue that night. All Brumbies members will be given free admission into the stadium on presentation of proof of membership.

In Super W action, the Brumbies were beaten by the Waratahs 41-8 on Friday 28 February. The Brumbies have the bye in round four, before taking on the Reds at home in round five.
