The ACT Brumbies will play five games under Friday night lights in 2019 and one afternoon fixture in Canberra, while the June break has been scrapped to accommodate the Rugby World Cup.

Super Rugby organisers have announced the 2019 draw and the Brumbies will open their season against the Melbourne Rebels at Canberra Stadium on February 15.

The Brumbies will host eight home games and play four of their opening five home and away matches under Friday night lights, including a blockbuster against arch-rivals NSW Waratahs in Canberra on March 15.

They'll avoid the Otago Highlanders in the New Zealand conference but face the Wellington Hurricanes, Canterbury Crusaders and Waikato Cheifs on the road.

The Brumbies will play just one game in South Africa, against the Cape Town Stormers, before facing the Jaguares in Argentina, while they don't meet the Durban Sharks.
