The Brumbies have recalled outside centre Andrew Smith to their starting line-up for their crucial Super Rugby test against the Bulls in Pretoria on Sunday.

It's the only change coach Jake White has made from the side that crushed the Rebels 37-6 at Canberra Stadium almost a week ago.

He's stuck with monster forward Fotu Auelua at No.8 for just his second Super Rugby game, pushing skipper Ben Mowen from his usual position to blindside breakaway for the second week running.

Smith returns to the starting 15 in place of young gun Tevita Kuridrani, who has been relegated to the bench.

Brumbies: Jesse Mogg, Henry Speight, Andrew Smith, Pat McCabe, Joe Tomane, Christian Lealiifano, Nic White, Fotu Auelua, Michael Hooper, Ben Mowen (capt), Sam Carter, Scott Fardy, Dan Palmer, Stephen Moore, Ben Alexander. Reserves: Anthony Hegarty, Ruaidhri Murphy, Peter Kimlin, Ita Vaea, Ian Prior, Robbie Coleman, Tevita Kuridrani.
