Super Round in Melbourne will follow in round two with the ACT set to face off against their 2022 Semi Final opponents, the Blues.

Round three will serve as Larkham’s official Canberra homecoming with the Brumbies welcoming the Reds to GIO Stadium for their first home game of the season on Saturday 11 March.

The Reds clash is one of seven home games for the Brumbies, the Waratahs, Moana Pasifika, Fijian Drua, Highlanders, Chiefs and Rebels all making the trip to Canberra, with the Highlanders in Round 12 kicking off at 2.35pm on Sunday 14 May.

ACT Brumbies CEO, Phil Thomson said: “We’re thankful to be able to share the 2023 draw with our members and fans a lot earlier thank previous years and we’re excited to have at least seven home games here in the ACT.”

“It’s fantastic to have such a great lead into our first home game on 11 March against the Reds with the Waratahs in Round one and of course Super Round in Melbourne against the Blues.

“Friday 24 February in Sydney will be a fantastic occasion for us as a club and we urge our fans and members to make the trip and get behind the team as we begin a new journey with Steve in charge and the ACT proudly represented in our name once again.”
