The Brumbies have named an unchanged team to play the NSW Waratahs on Saturday night when they attempt to seal top spot in Super Rugby's Australian conference.

Coach Jake White has stuck with the same 22 which scored a bonus-point victory over the Western Force in Perth for the penultimate round clash at ANZ Stadium.

The Brumbies ran up a 22-0 halftime lead against the Force before withstanding a second-half comeback by the home side.

The ACT-based franchise sit five points clear of defending champions Queensland on the Australian table and another bonus-point win would virtually make them unreachable.

"At this stage there's still a lot of rugby left for us, potentially we still have four games to play so in that regard it's great to have been able to keep the same team together," White said.

"To be fair to those boys they had a very strong first half last Saturday night."

ACT Brumbies: Robbie Coleman, Henry Speight, Andrew Smith, Pat McCabe, Jesse Mogg, Zack Holmes, Nic White; Ben Mowen (capt), Michael Hooper, Peter Kimlin, Sam Carter, Scott Fardy, Dan Palmer, Stephen Moore, Ben Alexander. Res: Anthony Hegarty, Ruaidhri Murphy, Leon Power, Ita Vaea, Ian Prior, Tevita Kuridrani, Cam Crawford.
