New Brumbies head coach Jake White has named six debutants in the team to take on the Western Force in his first Super Rugby match, at the Canberra Stadium on Friday.
Two of the newcomers to the Brumbies fold have been selected in the starting line-up.
Jesse Mogg will feature on the wing, while Leon Power has been called into the team at lock.
On the bench Ruaidhri Murphy, Scott Fardy, Zack Holmes and Joe Tomane have also been given the nod for the season opener.
Mogg and Power have both enjoyed successful pre-seasons at the Brumbies having come from different places to join the squad late last year. Mogg has been a part of the Brumbies Academy for the last two years and was also impressive last year with club side Wests.
Power has arrived from over the Tasman, working his way through the NPC with the Bay of Plenty Steamers to a fulltime Super Rugby contract.
Having represented New Zealand age-group level, Power has visited his past to claim a spot with the Brumbies having been born in Australia only to move across the ditch at the age of six.
For Mogg, the chance to face the Force on Friday was the culmination of two years' hard work.
"I've been in Canberra for a while now and the goal has always been to play for the Brumbies, so it's encouraging to see that my hard work has been recognised," Mogg said.
"Jake has told me to play my natural game, not to do anything special, just to do what I normally do.
"I see myself as a good attacking player, there are areas of my game that I will continually be working on but I'm confident of having an impact at Super Rugby level."
Like Mogg, Power will be looking to impose himself on the game early to settle his nerves.
At two-metres, Power will be a valuable asset in the Brumbies line-out, which is likely to compete against some of the best jumpers in Australian rugby like Nathan Sharpe and Sam Wykes.
"The line-out is somewhere I can see myself having an impact and something I'd like to be known for as my career progresses," Power said.
"In New Zealand we play a very physical game in the forwards - I enjoy the heavy contact and I expect there will be plenty of that at this level of rugby.
"The Force has a quality team and will be difficult at the line-out, but we have trained well this week and I'm confident things will run smoothly."
From the back three, White has selected Henry Speight on the opposite wing to Mogg and Robbie Coleman at fullback. The rest of the backline includes Nic White at scrumhalf, Matt Toomua at flyhalf, Christian Lealiifano at inside centre and Andrew Smith at outside centre.
The front row is all class, with Ben Alexander (loosehead), Stephen Moore (hooker) and Dan Palmer (tighthead) leading the charge up front.
Power is joined by Sam Carter in the second row, with Ita Vaea (openside flank), Peter Kimlin (blindside flank) and Ben Mowen (No. 8) the loose forwards.
Anthony Hegarty, Michael Hooper and Ian Prior join debutants Murphy, Fardy, Holmes and Tomane on the bench.
