It's here! The Super Rugby season is finally upon us as four Australian teams go head to head this week. The Rebels will host the Western Force in the official opener, but more folks will have their eye on the Canberra as the Brumbies host the Reds. The Reds were the only Australian team to make the playoffs last season, leaping the Brumbies on an epic last day of the season. The Brumbies will certainly be looking for revenge to start their season while the Red will want to show that their success wasn't a fluke. However, the team will be without stalwart Scott Higginbotham. Reds fans will want to keep their eye on Quade Cooper after his offseason antics. The Brumbies return the core of their team but have also added David Pocock from the Western Force.
