34th min: Brumbies close to the line here, Chiefs defending well but can they hold out?

Pre-match banter: Brodie Retallick brings up milestone as Chiefs captain

All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick will make his 100th Super Rugby appearance, when he captains the Chiefs against the Brumbies on Saturday night.

Retallick didn't finish his team's season-opening loss last week, after he was smashed in a tackle that resulted in Highlanders centre Sio Tomkinson being sent off for a no-arms, head-high tackle.

A Sanzaar judiciary has cleared Tomkinson of any wrong-doing and Retallick has obviously recovered enough to take his starting position in Canberra this week.

"As a team, we want this to be a memorable occasion for Brodie," says coach Colin Cooper. "We want to pull together a performance befitting this milestone on the field, come Saturday night."

Cooper has made several changes to the side that fell 30-27 in a late Highlanders comeback. Crucially, international utility Damian McKenzie will fill the number 10 jersey previously occupied by makeshift first-five Orbyn Leger.

All Blacks prop Nepo Laulala is promoted to the starting line-up, replacing fellow international Angus Ta'avao, who is rested for the fixture.

"We have a young team and last week they learnt a lot," says Cooper. "This weekend, we need them to take on board those learnings and, as a team, deliver on them."
