The third game this Saturday sees the Reds host the Lions in Brisbane, and I am afraid to say, this match really has only two outcomes – the Reds to win, or the Reds to beat the Lions comprehensively.

The Reds hit great form last Sunday, beating the Chiefs in an entertaining match, coming back from being behind and recording a good five point victory. The Reds also welcome back Quade Cooper at flyhalf, something that is sure to give the Reds the necessary boost to push for a play-off spot.

The Lions team is unchanged from the side that went down to the Blues last weekend, and being their third match on tour, they will already be looking forward to the trip home.

Reds: 1. Greg Holmes,2. Saia Faingaa,3. James Slipper,4. Rob Simmons,5. James Horwill (c),6. Jake Schatz,7. Liam Gill,8. Scott Higginbotham,9. Will Genia,10. Quade Cooper,11. Digby Ioane,12. Mike Harris,13. Anthony Faingaa,14. Dom Shipperley,15. Ben Lucas

Replacements : 16. James Hanson,17. Ben Daley,18. Adam Wallace-Harrison,19. Eddie Quirk,20. Nick Frisby,21. Chris F’Sautia,22. Luke Morahan

  • Would love for the Lions to win this one, but I’m surprised that the score is still so low.

  • For a brief 19minutes I thought there may be an upset on the cards, now I see the only upset one will be Mitchell.
