The Rebels team to face the Blues on Thursday, which is a first for Super Rugby, has been announced and it will be the first time that they are able to play all three their play-makers together, with Danny Cipriani recovering from injury to take his place in the team.

James O’Connor, who did duty in the ten jersey last weekend, will shift to inside centre to play outside the English pivot. Kurtley Beale will continue at fullback and the three together will hope to make a sufficient impact to take victory over the Blues.

Rodney Blake returns to the front row for his first start of the season, with Laurie Weeks dropping to the bench. There is more good news as Richard Kingi has recovered from injury and will take a spot on the bench.

Rebels: 1. Nic Henderson,2. Adam Freier,3. Rodney Blake,4. Luke Jones,5. Hugh Pyle (vc),6. Jarrod Saffy,7. Michael Lipman,8. Gareth Delve (c),9. Nick Phipps,10. Danny Cipriani,11. Mark Gerrard,12. James O’Connor,13. Mitch Inman,14. Lachlan Mitchell,15. Kurtley Beale

  • Should be a close game but I’m thinking Bryce Lawrence will swing the game in favour of the Blues.
