The Reds will take on the Highlanders this week with a changed team from the 22 that beat the Bulls last week.

Digby Ioane has been ruled out, along with Chris Feauai-Sautia, Saia Fainga’a, Mike Harris and Nick Frisby.

The team selected to play the Highlanders sees two new wingers in Luke Morahan and Dom Shipperley, while up front, Liam Gill returns to the loose trio and Rob Simmons locks down in the second row with captain James Horwill.

On the bench, Ben Lucas, Aidan Toua and Rod Davies get a chance to make an impact in the latter stages.

Reds: 15 Jono Lance, 14 Dom Shipperley, 13 Anthony Faingaa, 12 Ben Tapuai, 11 Luke Morahan, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Jake Schatz, 7 Liam Gill, 6 Eddie Quirk, 5 James Horwill (c), 4 Rob Simmons, 3 James Slipper, 2 James Hanson, 1 Greg Holmes.
