Our second game this morning is an Australian derby that should really have only one winner, with the Reds hosting the Force in Brisbane.

The Reds come off a late win over the Waratahs last weekend, and will be hoping for a much improved performance against the Force. Mike Harris will continue in the absence of Quade Cooper, and will want to make life difficult for the selectors by having another good game.

The Force came undone against the Brumbies last week, and I do not think things will get any better this weekend. Their team, apart from captain David Pocock, looks a little dire of stand out players, and they will find life difficult this season.

Reds to take it, easily.

Reds: 15. Luke Morahan, 14. Dom Shipperley, 13. Ben Tapuai, 12. Jonathan Lance, 11. Digby Ioane, 10. Mike Harris, 9. Will Genia, 8. Radike Samo, 7. Beau Robinson, 6. Jake Schatz, 5. James Horwill (Captain), 4. Rob Simmons, 3. James Slipper, 2. Albert Anae, 1. Ben Daley

Replacements: 16. James Hanson, 17. Greg Holmes, 18. Van Humphries, 19. Ed Quirk, 20. Liam Gill, 21. Ben Lucas, 22. Rod Davies

Force: 15. Alifeleti (Alfi) Mafi, 14. Nick Cummins, 13. Patrick Dellit, 12. Winston Stanley, 11. Napolioni Nalaga, 10. James Stannard, 9. Brett Sheehan, 8. Ben McCalman, 7. David Pocock (Captain), 6. Matthew Hodgson, 5. Nathan Sharpe, 4. Toby Lynn, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, 2. Nathan Charles, 1. Pekahou Cowan

Replacements: 16. Ben Whittaker, 17. Kieran Longbottom, 18. Phoenix Battye, 19. Angus Cottrell, 20. Ben Seymour, 21. Rory Sidey, 22. Samu Wera
