How to watch Super Rugby AU final ACT Brumbies vs Queensland Reds live and free in Australia
The Super Rugby season comes to an end with the ladder-leading Brumbies hosting the Reds in the decider. This is how you can watch.
Following the coronavirus pandemic, an all-Australian rugby season was created while the traditional Super Rugby campaign could not go ahead due to travel restrictions. Five teams participated and the Brumbies were the standout side all season long.
The Canberra-based team finished with a 6-2 record from its round robin matches, qualifying automatically for the grand final. The second-placed Reds then overcame the Melbourne Rebels in last week's qualifying final to set up this year's finale.
When is the Super Rugby final?
The big showdown kicks off at 7:15pm AEST on Saturday 19 September at GIO Stadium in Canberra.

Who will win Brumbies vs Reds?
The Reds knocked off the Brumbies in the final round of the regular season, one of just two defeats for the ACT outfit this season. The other came against the Rebels back in August. That result should give the Queenslanders plenty of confidence. But the Brumbies have been the best team all season and earned the home ground advantage. We think they'll be too strong in the final.
