MELBOURNE - The Melbourne Rebels are confident they have the game plan to put a large dent in the Brumbies' Super Rugby finals ambitions in their clash on Saturday.

The Rebels are hoping it's a case of history repeating itself in the Canberra Stadium match.

Back in round six, they were soundly beaten by the NSW Waratahs but bounced back in the next match to upset the Brumbies 32-24.

"We think we had a good game plan against the Brumbies last time so we think we've got a bit of a blueprint there to follow," said assistant coach Sean Hedger.

"We are definitely taking some confidence into the game."

While the Rebels were outclassed by the Australian conference leading Waratahs, the Brumbies dropped their past two games in South Africa to fall outside the top six and put their finals hopes at risk.
