The Reds have named their team to take on the Western Force this weekend, with quite a few changes to the line up that lost to the Bulls last weekend, and one of them is not Dallan Murphy being dropped.

Murphy, who made his debut last weekend against the Bulls and had an absolute shocker, will again wear the 10 jersey as the Reds continue to struggle with flyhalf injuries.

The tight five sees the most changes, with James Hanson and James Slipper coming into the front row, and Van Humphries boosting the second row. Liam Gill comes onto the side of the scrum is the last of the forward changes.

Joel Rapana comes in for the injured Jono Lance, who broke his leg in the Bulls match, in an otherwise unchanged backline.

Reds: 1. Ben Daley , 2. James Hanson , 3. James Slipper , 4. Van Humphries , 5. James Horwill (c) , 6. Scott Higginbotham , 7. Liam Gill , 8. Jake Schatz , 9. Will Genia (vc) , 10. Dallan Murphy , 11. Luke Morahan , 12. Ben Tapuai , 13. Joel Rapana , 14. Dom Shipperley , 15. Rod Davies

Replacements : 16. Albert Anae , 17. Greg Holmes , 18. Rob Simmons , 19. Eddie Quirk , 20. Beau Robinson , 21. Nick Frisby , 22. Nathan Eyres-Brown
