    Cape Town - The Reds have announced an unchanged side to play the Cheetahs in a Super Rugby clash in Brisbane on Saturday (kick-off 11:45 SA time).

    That means James Slipper again captains the side, with Karmichael Hunt at fullback and Liam Gill at openside flank.

    “The Cheetahs are a good side and we’ve had some close matches with them in recent years.
