The Brumbies have won nine consecutive Super Rugby games at home and are honing in on the club they record set 22 years ago.

The Brumbies won 13 straight games in Canberra between the inaugural Super Rugby season in 1996 and 1998.

They'll look to make it 10 home victories on the bounce when they host the Melbourne Rebels on Friday night.

"Not many people like travelling to Canberra," Brumbies and Wallabies hooker Folau Faingaa said.

"It's just a special place to play and we have to keep that winning mindset."

The Brumbies are Australia's most successful Super Rugby club with two titles and they've played finals in six of the past seven seasons.

Inside centre Irae Simone wants to make Canberra the most feared away trip in the competition.

"We're trying to bring back the fortress," Simone said.

"We're trying to bring that feeling back for teams fearing coming to Canberra and so far we're doing pretty well on the back of nine wins."
