Lions coach Eugene Eloff says his charges will maul the Brumbies in their Super 14 clash at Ellis Park Stadium tomorrow at 5pm.

"During our training session this week, we concentrated on scrumming, lineouts, rucks and mauls," said Eloff.

"The Brumbies are a tricky team, but we are determined to send them back home empty-handed."

The Gauteng lot are fresh from their 30-7 victory over the Hurricanes last weekend.

But they would be warned to guard against complacency when they trot onto the field.

They meet a Brumbies team that commands after the Australian side ended the Sharks' unbeaten record with a 21-10 win in Durban last week.

Meanwhile, the Bulls will be seeking a fourth win on their tour when they face last year's semifinalists the Hurricanes in Wellington tomorrow.

The wounded Sharks will be out to regain their dented image when they face the Western Force in Perth today.
