Injuries and suspension have forced tweaks to the Brumbies' forward pack to face the Bulls this weekend.

Rory Arnold (suspended) and Rob Valetini (knee) will both miss the Pretoria clash, as the Brumbies look to avoid a club record losing streak.

Connal McInerney has joined the squad as a replacement hooker, after an injury to Robbie Abel forced him out of the match against the Lions.

The Brumbies have lost four matches in a row heading into the clash with the Bulls, with their finals hopes all but evaporated.

The Brumbies take on the Bulls on Saturday night, kicking off at 3:05pm local, 11:05pm AEST, LIVE on FOX SPORTS.
