David Pocock has been ruled out for another week as a frustrating calf injury sidelines the Brumbies' superstar for a fifth-straight Super Rugby match.
Pocock travelled on the Brumbies' tour of South Africa and Argentina and was an outside chance to feature in their first game against the Stormers early on Sunday morning (1:05am AEST).
But the Wallabies flanker will look to make his highly anticipated return against the Jaguares next week in Buenos Aires.
Former New Zealand under-20 flanker Jahrome Brown has been handed the No.7 jersey for his first Super Rugby start and replaces Lachlan McCaffrey (knee) as Tom Cusack moves to blindside.
It marks the only change to the Brumbies' starting side after last week's defeat of the Lions, while Murray Douglas comes onto the bench and playmaker Wharenui Hawera replaces Irae Simone.
The 3-5 Brumbies are looking to make a late charge for finals, while the 4-4 Stormers are riding high after beating Australian conference leaders the Rebels last week in Melbourne.
