It's the final round of the regular Super Rugby season, and with five teams in the top-eight currently separated by five points or less, Matt Burke expects an absolute cracker.
Brumbies vs Blues
The Brumbies, who currently sit five points clear at the top of the Australian Conference, will be hungry to finish the season off on a good note and take some winning form into the finals.
This weekend gives them a real opportunity to put a 'finals type' game-plan out on the park against a Blues side who have nothing to lose as their season has been done and dusted for quite some time.
The Brumbies proved to me last week that they are a side who, despite things going against them, can pull one out of the fire and grind out a win when needed. Skipper Ben Mowen has been solid all season, while the combination of Nic White and Zack Holmes has proved to be a tremendous success for them.
The Blues have nothing to lose this weekend, and if the Brumbies play safe rugby, and simply try and protect a small lead, it will give them a sniff. The Brumbies must attack and attack with purpose.
They had a good win last week, and on paper the Blues look like a slick outfit - the likes of Tony Woodcock and Kevin Mealamu are a dangerous proposition who must be respected.

It's in Canberra, so go with the Brumbies by under 6 points.
Reds vs Waratahs
After casting a keen eye on proceedings on Saturday afternoon, the Reds will enter Saturday's game with a distinct advantage.
Unlike most of their rivals they will more than likely know what is exactly required of them before they set foot on the park.
There is little doubt in my mind that the defending champs will be going for it: it is all or nothing for them. First and foremost, they need to worry about winning the game, but they shouldn't forget that if the results go their way there is still a possibility they could clinch the Australian Conference a la Steven Bradbury.
Digby Ioane will return for the Reds and they'll be keen for him to showcase his attacking brilliance against a Waratahs' defence that has at times had more holes in it than a slice of Swiss cheese.
The Waratahs have been nothing short of atrocious lately, and this weekend could easily get quite ugly for them. I can see the intent of the players on the park, but there just seems to be very little cohesion between them.
Once again, a lot of the responsibility will fall on the shoulders of Berrick Barnes, but even the best in the business need some help and I can't see any of his teammates providing enough this weekend to get them over the line.
The Reds will want to score early and lock it down thereafter.
