    Reds change 4 for Hurricanes clash

    2017-03-29 08:47

    Cape Town - Reds head coach Nick Stiles has made four changes to his starting XV to take on the Hurricanes in Brisbane on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 10:45 SA time.

    In the forwards, lock Rob Simmons returns to the starting side in place of injured Izack Rodda who suffered an ankle injury in last weekend’s loss to the Jaguares. 

    A shuffle in the back row sees George Smith return to the starting No 7 jersey, with Adam Korczyk shifting to blindside flank and Hendrik Tui moving to the bench.

    In the backs, Chris Kuridrani returns to the starting wing for the first time since Round 2, with Izaia Perese on the bench.

    Stiles has also named one potential debutant in the match-day 23, with Queensland Under-20 flyhalf Hamish Stewart on the bench.

    Stewart has been a standout for Queensland’s Super Under-20 side, helping them secure a home final against New South Wales at Ballymore this coming Sunday.
