Head Coach Tony Rea stayed behind to watch the extended squad members play for their Sydney club sides on Saturday, arriving with Pat Phibbs, Salesi Ma’afu. Robbie Coleman, Tyrone Smith, Jono Owen and Franky Fainifo.

The team to play the Cheetahs will be named on Wednesday.

The CA Technologies Brumbies have enjoyed a bye week, but will now focus on taking on the Cheetahs at Bloemfontein on Friday evening at 7.10pm [3.10am, AEST, live on Fox Sports 1.

The team will fly from Cape Town to Bloemfontein on Thursday morning.
