Toomua out of Brumbies vs Bulls

Matt Toomua will have one less chance to push for his Wallabies starting spot, ruled out of this weekend's Brumbies clash with the Bulls.

Toomua has been ruled out with a knee injury that ended his clash against the Highlanders last weekend, replaced by Robbie Coleman at 12, with James Dargaville on the wing.

In more positive news, Stephen Moore will return to the starting side, along with veteran Ben Alexander and Scott Sio, who returns to the starting loosehead spot.

Lock Rory Arnold has been elevated to the starting side this weekend, while the backrowe combination of Scott Fardy, David Pocock and Jarrad Butler is basically the only unchanged area.

The Brumbies host the Bulls on Friday night at 7:40pm.
