Reds make a host of changes after Bulls win (teamsheet)

Digby Ioane, Chris Feauai-Suatia, Saia Fainga’a, Nick Frisby and Mike Harris are all set to miss the trip down to Dunedin this weekend, giving the Reds a different look to the one that downed the Bulls. RW Stamp

Will Genia took control last Saturday, and is more vital to the Reds than pivot Quade Cooper. With the two reunited the Reds eventually look like the team who won the tournament just a few seasons ago.

Liam Gill and Rob Simmons return to full fitness, to add some quality to the pack, as  Dom Shipperley and Luke Morahan come into a backline that will miss the running game of Digby Ioane and the pinpoint goal kicking of Mike Harris.

Captain James Horwill had a successful return from a long term injury last weekend and is set to play more than 40 minutes this time.

Reds: 15 Jono Lance, 14 Dom Shipperley, 13 Anthony Faingaa, 12 Ben Tapuai, 11 Luke Morahan, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Jake Schatz, 7 Liam Gill, 6 Eddie Quirk, 5 James Horwill (c), 4 Rob Simmons, 3 James Slipper, 2 James Hanson, 1 Greg Holmes.Substitutes: 16 Albert Anae, 17 Ben Daley, 18 Ed O’Donoghue, 19 Jarrad Butler, 20 Ben Lucas, 21 Aidan Toua, 22 Rod Davies.
