One of the great Wallabies, Stirling Mortlock, will finally make an appearance in Super Rugby 2012, as he has been selected on the bench for the Rebels, with the centre recovering from a calf injury that has kept him out of rugby for some time.

Kurtley Beale has been selected at flyhalf following the injury to James O’Connor and the release of Danny Cipriani. Mark Gerrard will win his 100th Super Rugby cap when he takes the field this weekend, adding to a very experienced backline indeed.

Rebels: 1. Nic Henderson, 2. Ged Robinson, 3. Rodney Blake, 4. Cadeyrn Neville, 5. Hugh Pyle, 6. Luke Jones, 7. Tim Davidson, 8. Gareth Delve, 9. Nick Phipps, 10. Kurtley Beale, 11. Cooper Vuna, 12. Lachlan Mitchell, 13. Mitch Inman, 14. Mark Gerrard, 15. Julian Huxley.

Replacements: 16. Adam Freier, 17. Jono Owen, 18. Al Campbell, 19. Ryan Hodson, 20. Richard Kingi, 21. James Hilgendorf, 22. Stirling Mortlock
