    Brisbane - The Reds have named their side to take on the Crusaders at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

    The Reds have made three changes to the starting side for this weekend’s match, with recent debutants lock Izack Rodda and wing Izaia Perese in line for their run-on debuts after strong performances off the bench in the opening stages of the competition.

    Last year’s Pilecki Medal runner up, Hendrik Tui, has also been promoted to the starting side at blindside flanker for the first time this season.

    Lock Kane Douglas, flank  Adam Korczyk and wing Chris Kuridrani have been moved from the starting side to the reserves.
