The NSW Waratahs have confirmed they will face the Brumbies in a pre-season trial in Bowral on January 29.
It will be played at Bowral Blacks Rugby Club, making up for a cancelled trial between the two sides in 2020.
There will also be a City v Country clash between the Waratahs' Super W side as they continue preparations to defend their title in 2022.
“We are delighted to head to Bowral to face the Brumbies in what will be one of the last opportunities for Darren Coleman and his side to fine tune their game ahead of their 2022 Super Rugby Pacific campaign,” NSW Rugby CEO Paul Doorn said in a statement.
“Hosting a pre-season match in Bowral provides us with a fantastic opportunity to engage with the passionate and engaged rugby community in the Southern Highlands and to bring a game of this quality against one of our fiercest rivals to their doorstop is something we’re really excited about.
“I’d also like to acknowledge the support we’ve received from the Brumbies and Bowral Rugby Club in making this trial match possible.”
The match will be the Waratahs' first for 2022, with coach Darren Coleman confirming they will face three rotating Shute Shield sides the following week before rounding out their pre-season against the Reds.

Brumbies CEO Phil Thomson believes the fixture will be perfect preparation ahead of the inaugural Super Rugby Pacific season, with both teams slated to face off in Round 3.
"We're thrilled to be part of what will to be a great day for rugby in the Southern Highlands," he added.
"We were disappointed to not be able to play the game in Bowral last year so to play our part in bringing a game of this quality to a region which is passionate about rugby is great.
"Hopefully, fans from Canberra and Sydney and all those in our region can come together to enjoy the day and build towards the Super Rugby Pacific season."
