The third match this morning, and the first cross conference match of the weekend, sees the Reds host the Hurricanes in Brisbane.

The Reds started unconvincingly, by losing to the Brumbies, but beat the Waratahs last week to get some form of momentum. Ace goal kicker Mike Harris has been dropped to the bench for this match, so the assumption is that Quade Cooper will take over the kicking.

The Hurricanes were favourites to beat the Blues last week, but as we saw again this morning, the Blues are a different team this year, and the Hurricanes will hope to get their points ally off the mark in the New Zealand conference.

Reds: 15 Aidan Toua, 14 Dom Shipperley, 13 Chris Feauai-Sautia, 12 Ben Tapuai, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Ben Lucas, 8 Jake Schatz, 7 Liam Gill, 6 Eddie Quirk, 5 Ed O’Donoghue, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 James Slipper (captain), 2 Saia Faingaa, 1 Greg Holmes.

Replacements: 16 James Hanson, 17 Albert Anae, 18 Adam Wallace-Harrison, 19 Radike Samo, 20 Nick Frisby, 21 Mike Harris, 22 Luke Morahan.

Hurricanes: 15 Andre Taylor, 14 Alapati Leiua, 13 Conrad Smith (captain), 12 Tim Bateman, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 TJ Perenara, 8 Brad Shields, 7 Karl Lowe, 6 Victor Vito, 5 Jason Eaton, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 3 Jeffery Toomaga-Allen, 2 Dane Coles, 1 Ben Franks.

Replacements: 16 Motu Matu’u, 17 Reggie Goodes, 18 James Broadhurst, 19 Faifili Levave, 20 Chris Smylie, 21 James Marshall, 22 Reynold Lee-Lo.

    I have a feeling though that the Canes will be too strong..

    Best joke I’ve heard in a while(only available in Afrikaans)

    Koos daag by ‘n fancy dress party op met rugsak vol bier. Die gasheer vra hom: ‘Ou Maat, wat’s jy veronderstel om te wees?’ Koos: ‘Ek’s ‘n skilpad. Hierdie is my dop. :lol:

    Wat het die baba skilpad vir sy ma gese voor hy in die water geduik het?

  • The talent in the Australian conference is spread VERY thin. The only hope any of them have of beating the Sharks/Stormers/Bulls is if the ref is on their side – which sadly, they regularly are…
