The second Good Friday match is an Australian derby where the Reds host the Brumbies after a rough three weeks away from home, where they lost not only all their matches, but a few key players along the way.

The Reds have called upon Sam Lane to take over the flyhalf duties from the ginger not-so-ninja Dallan Murphy, and a lot will rest on the young man’s shoulders as he faces off with one of the more talented flyhalves in Christian Lealiifano. Beau Robinson and Scott Higginbotham are finally playing in tandem in the loose trio after injuries to both players in the early part of the season.

For the Brumbies, they will rue the missed opportunities against the Sharks last weekend, where they really could have won a tough encounter, but the youngsters will learn from that experience and do better next time.

Reds: 1. Ben Daley, 2. James Hanson, 3. James Slipper, 4. Rob Simmons, 5. James Horwill (c), 6. Beau Robinson, 7. Liam Gill, 8. Scott Higginbotham, 9. Will Genia (vc), 10. Sam Lane, 11. Rod Davies, 12. Ben Tapuai, 13. Aidan Toua, 14. Dom Shipperley, 15. Luke Morahan.

Reserves: 16. Albert Anae, 17. Greg Holmes, 18. Radike Samo, 19. Van Humphries, 20. Eddie Quirk, 21. Nick Frisby, 22. Dallan Murphy.

Brumbies: 15. Jesse Mogg, 14. Henry Speight, 13. Andrew Smith, 12. Pat McCabe, 11. Joseph Tomane, 10. Christian Lealiifano, 9. Nic White, 8. Ben Mowen (Captain), 7. Ita Vaea, 6. Peter Kimlin, 5. Sam Carter, 4. Leon Power, 3. Dan Palmer, 2. Stephen Moore, 1. Ben Alexander

Replacements: 16. Anthony Hegarty, 17. Ruaidhri Murphy, 18. Scott Fardy, 19. Michael Hooper, 20. Ian Prior, 21. Zack Holmes, 22. Tevita Kuridrani

  • Well if I look at Sportsbets` record the two upsets of the weekend are now over with so we can expect the Reds, Chiefs, Highlanders, Cheetahs and Bulls to get results.

    Wouldn`t bet the house on it though . . .

  • The refs are making the game unwatchable. If this is the standard of refereeing that is acceptable then I can’t see myself watching the rest of the super rugby season
