The Hurricanes' meeting with the Brumbies shapes as the Super Rugby equivalent of a freight train speeding at a parked bus.
The competition's best attacking side are set to host one of the most solid defensive sides in tonight’s clash.
The Hurricanes are averaging almost seven tries a game, while the Brumbies have conceded just 120 points in seven games.
The defending champions are Super Rugby's best side for meters gained, clean breaks and defenders beaten where the Brumbies are amongst the worst in the competition.
However the Brumbies defence has stood up this season, with the highest tackle percentage.
The Brumbies thrashed the Hurricanes 52‑10 in Canberra in the opening round of fixtures last year.
The Hurricanes will take on the Brumbies at 7.35 tonight.
