The Rebels have made some tweaks to their Super W side to face the Brumbies on Friday night.

Melbourne comes into the match without a win in the competition, hosting their first home game at AAMI Park.

Flanker Phoebe Linder-Patton will miss the clash with an ankle injury, replaced by Rebecca Walker, among a handful of changes for the side.

Coach Alana Thomas said the team was relishing the lead-up to their first home game.

The Brumbies' women take on the Rebels at AAMI Park on Friday, kicking off at 5pm AEDT, to be broadcast on Friday night at 10pm AEDT on FOX SPORTS 505, with a replay available on RUGBY.com.au after the conclusion of that broadcast. Anyone with a ticket for the Super Rugby match can access the Super W match from 4:45pm through Gate 7.
