    Cape Town - The Reds have made it back-to-back victories in Super Rugby in 2013 when they outlasted the Hurricanes in Brisbane on Friday.

    The Reds won 18-12 after leading 11-9 at half-time.

    The Reds scored the only tries of the match through wing Digby Ioane and lock Rob Simmons. Flyhalf Quade Cooper was on target with a conversion and two penalties.

    The Hurricanes replied with four penalties by No 10 Beauden Barrett.

    The Reds picked up four points for their victory, which followed their win over the Waratahs last weekend, as they moved into second place in the Australian Conference behind the table-topping Brumbies.

    The Hurricanes left Suncorp Stadium with a single point - their very first of the season - for losing by seven or fewer points. The Hurricanes lost their opening match last weekend against the Blues.

    In next weekend's Round 4 action, the Reds travel to Melbourne to face the Rebels, while the Hurricanes host the Crusaders in Wellington.
