Brumbies winger Andy Muirhead is excited by the opportunity for the club to test themselves against the Crusaders as they look to continue their dominant start.

Stephen Larkham's side have established themselves as key contenders for the Super Rugby title with four straight wins to start the season.

They have beaten local rivals NSW Waratahs and Queensland Reds whilst the win over the minor premier Blues solidified their claims.

However, they face a difficult test this week: facing the Crusaders in Christchurch, a place where they have not won since 2000.

“We obviously thrive at home and I think it’s the same thing with them…they’ve got a good supporter base over there and they pack it out," Muirhead told reporters.

“We’ll enjoy the opportunity over there and go out there and play well.

“We’ve got to be a little better than what we were on the weekend.

“We’re going to prep as well as we can with the six-day turnaround and hopefully get over there and put our best foot forward that may result in a win.”

Muirhead has been one of the underrated stars in their strong first month, sitting in second on the try-scoring table with four.

“I think I’ve hit my try quota for the year so it’s been a bit of a surprise this year,” he joked

“I’m just trying to inject myself wherever I can and I think that’s come after a good pre-season under Bernie and getting some combinations with the boys.

“I’m trying to build good relations with ball in hand.” 

The winger has thrived in a floating-type role alongside fellow winger Corey Toole, on full display late in last week's win over Moana Pasifika with a perfect pass from Muirhead to the Sevens Player of the Year.

“It’s good as an outside back the more touches you get, you can cold on the wing there, but I think our ball players and our game plan is getting more involved with the outside backs

“Someone like (Corey) Tooley getting his hands on the ball more frequently is going to do wonders for us so it’s exciting to watch him with more ball in hand."
