    Reds change one for Sharks visit

    2015-05-20 10:00

    Cape Town - Chris Kuridrani will start on the left wing for the Reds against the Sharks in Brisbane on Friday.

    Kick-off is at 11:40.

    Kuridrani replaces Lachie Turner, who has been ruled out due to concussion, in the only change to the team that beat the Rebels 46-29 last weekend.

    The Sharks are coming off a controversial 33-18 defeat to the Waratahs in Sydney, their third defeat on tour and sixth straight loss.

    The Reds are currently fourth in the Australian Conference and a lowly 14th in the Overall standings.

    The Sharks find themselves fourth in the South African Conference, but a slightly elevated 11th in the Overall log, some five points ahead of their opponents, albeit having played an extra match.
