Following their victory in the Vodafone Super Rugby AU Grand Final, a number of Plus500 Brumbies players will make their return to the John I Dent Cup this weekend. 

The ACT & Southern NSW's premier club competition enters the final leg of the regular season this Saturday 26 September, with finals places to be decided in the last round. 

Connal McInerney will be in action for the Canberra Royals in their matchup with the Gungahlin Eagles at Phillip Oval, having been part of Royals 2019 and 2017 Premiership winning sides.

The Eagles meanwhile will be bolstered by the inclusion of tighthead prop Tom Ross, as well as Isaak Fines and Mack Hansen. 

That crucial clash will be the Single Fin Match of the Round, live on Bar TV and Brumbies Facebook from 3.05pm. 

Queanbeyan Whites will welcome Wests to Campese Oval for their final game of the season. Whites will have impressive young lock Nick Frost in their side, while Reesjan Pasitoa and Harry Lloyd will run on for the Lions.

Finally, Tuggeranong Vikings will travel to ANU North Oval for a Minor Premiership decider against the Uni-Norths Owls. 

Vikings will have the Lonergan brothers, Ryan and Lachlan as well as Darcy Swain available while the Owls welcome Australian Schools star Billy Pollard back into the team after some impressive performances earlier in the season.

Following this round of fixtures, there will be a competition wide bye next week before the Final commence Saturday 10 October, where more Brumbies players are expected to join their club sides in search of John I Dent Cup glory.
