The Reds team to take on the Stormers this weekend will see one of the former Western Province boys take the field and play an important role as Sam Lane continues in the flyhalf berth. Lane made his debut against the Brumbies and had an immediate impact, as the Reds have previously struggled with Dallan Murphy at pivot.

The form flyhalf for the early weeks in the competition, Mike Harris, is back and will play outside the young Lane, and will most likely take over the kicking duties as well.

Radike Samo is also back in the starting line-up to boost the Reds even further, as they face the in-form South African team on Friday.

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

Replacements :16. Albert Anae,17. Greg Holmes,18. Van Humphries,19. Jake Schatz,20. Liam Gill,21. Ben Lucas,22. Nick Frisb
