MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Arguably no one has a better claim to the Wallabies' number nine shirt than Nic White but the former Exeter Chief will be biding his time on the bench for the ACT Brumbies in the Super Rugby AU final against the Queensland Reds on Saturday.

Joe Powell will be starting scrumhalf for the domestic title match, relegating White to a finishing role at Canberra Stadium where the Brumbies will look to reinforce their claim as Australia's most dominant provincial side.

Choker tag’s short stay and the pay-off for patience: Five things we learnt from Australia’s UK tour

  Choker tag’s short stay and the pay-off for patience: Five things we learnt from Australia’s UK tour These are the five things I took out of Australia’s white-ball tour of England. 1. Aussies shake choker tag before it could stick After losing two games from seemingly unlosable positions prior to the ODI series decider, the narrative was quickly shifting that Australia’s cricketers had become chokers in the big moments. The Aussies, of course, insisted this wasn’t true. They claimed that rather than suffering from nerves, they were mostly undone by wearing pitches in Southampton and Manchester after six months off. Either way, England’s ability to come back form the dead was beginning to grate.

White, who played for the Brumbies between 2011-2015 and was a former vice captain along with David Pocock, returned to Canberra mid-year after spells with Montpellier and Exeter.

The 30-year-old said he is fine with starting on the bench given he did not expect to get a game in the tournament at all.

"I wasn't part of the decision but I’ve only played four games in what feels like a bloody long eight months," he told Reuters after training on Friday.

"So, I’m sort of working out the rust at the moment.

"It’s four more games than I thought I’d get coming back.

"I’m glad they put a lot of faith in me, even just to sneak onto the bench. So I’m very thankful for that. I just feel lucky to have been able to come home to play a small role in it."

While White rejoined the Wallabies fold at last year's World Cup in Japan, he played his first game in five years for the Dan McKellar-coached Brumbies in August.

'Circuit break': PM considering national restrictions on social lives to curb infections

  'Circuit break': PM considering national restrictions on social lives to curb infections Boris Johnson is considering the introduction of new national restrictions - possibly as soon as next week - as the prime minister races to try and get a handle on the spread of coronavirus. With COVID-19 cases now doubling every seven to eight days, the government is looking at introducing nationwide restrictions for a short period to try to "short-circuit" the virus and slow the spread of the disease. Government figures stressed the plans being drawn up stopped short of a full national lockdown, as seen in the spring, when the country was told to "stay at home".

Names and positions have changed during his absence but for White, the Brumbies' fundamentals remain as strong as ever.

"I think the bedrock of what this club is about hasn’t changed and that's the hard work of being here in Canberra, being a close group," he said.

"A lot of the guys are not from here and have come to play for the team, and that certainly contributes to that (culture).

"That's put these guys in this position to be able to play a final at home."

The Brumbies go into the title clash refreshed, having earned a week off for finishing top of the table at the end of the regular season.

They were able to rest and watch the Reds book their place in the final with a tough win over the Melbourne Rebels.

Only 6,000 fans will be permitted at Canberra Stadium under social distancing restrictions due to COVID-19, a doubling of the previous limit of 3,000.

"It is certainly bittersweet and a shame that we can’t have a full house but we also kind of feel that 6,000 is a lot for what’s become the norm over recent times," said White.

Tonight’s Super Rugby AU final between the Brumbies and Reds will go some way to revealing whether Australia’s generation-next are genuine gems, or made of stuff not quite as stern. The Reds, in particular, have relied on youth all season, and their starting XV is chock full of men who’ll be challenging for Wallabies jerseys for years to come.

"When we were playing here with 3,000 it felt like a hell of a lot.

"It’s been a whirlwind of a year for everybody in the world.

"We’d love to finish off what’s been an interesting season, certainly a very different one. And one that we’re certainly proud as a group how we’ve dealt with it."

Three talking points from the Super Rugby AU qualifying final .
One of the better Australian derbies in years, and easily the best Super Rugby AU match to date saw the Queensland Reds win the qualifying final over the Melbourne Rebels, and have now won through to Saturday night’s final against the Brumbies in Canberra. It wasn’t without cost, with the Reds finishing with no healthy backs left on the bench, outside backs Jordan Petaia and Chris Feauai-Sautia not making it through to halftime.
