ACT Brumbies coach Dan McKellar will consider resting some key players this week to ensure they're fresh for the finals, but concedes changing a winning side could affect momentum.
The Brumbies will return to the play-offs this season after securing Australia's guaranteed place with a big win against the NSW Waratahs on Saturday night.
They are third on the overall ladder and could host two home finals on June 21 or 22 and the following week if they remain in the same spot after the last regular-season game.
Try-scoring hooker Folau Faingaa copped a knock on his elbow in the Waratahs win, but is expected to be available for selection to play the Queensland Reds this weekend.
Australian rugby introduced a mandatory resting policy for Wallabies players this season to aid preparations for the World Cup.
The Brumbies have fulfilled their requirements, but it could be tempting to refresh minds and bodies before the finals campaign.
The counter argument is to avoid tinkering with a winning formula given the Brumbies have won their past five games and seven of their past eight.
"I'll think about [resting or not] at a later stage," McKellar said.
"My initial thoughts are momentum and confidence. I'm not a big fan of making mass changes. But is there a couple of guys that may need a break?
"That's something we'll consider. But I wouldn't expect wholesale changes, that's for sure."
The Brumbies are hoping their winning momentum, a Pasifika Day to honour players Pacific Island heritage, finals form and an imposing Canberra record will convince fans to fill the stands for the clash against the Reds before the play-offs.
The Brumbies are now on their longest winning streak since 2007 and are powering their way to the finals rather than limping into the big matches like they have done in the past.
But crowds have dipped again this year and the club is in danger of recording the lowest average attendance for home matches in its 23-year Super Rugby history.
Poor crowd numbers could also lead to the unthinkable of having a home final cost the Brumbies $100,000 if fans don't turn up.
But Sam Carter hopes supporters embrace the way the team is playing and join the bandwagon.
"Historically we've always faded [at the end of seasons]. But this year it feels a little bit different," Carter said.
"This one we're coming off the back of five wins [in a row]. We haven't thought about it much, but it's good momentum and we're in a good place. We're playing some good, balanced footy. If we can keep that up, we can go deep.
"There are games we need to win it with the maul and games where the backs have the silky skills. As long as we've got that balance, it'll be a good finals series."
