Reds captain James Horwill says that next week's Super Rugby match against the Rebels in Brisbane is a must win match after they lost to the Stormers in Cape Town.

The Reds ended their two match South African tour with only a losing bonus point from two losess.

Last week the Reds lost 27-13 to the Cheetahs and this week they took a losing bonus point from their 20-15 loss to the Stormers.

The Reds return to Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane now where they will play their final regular season fixture before the June Test window against the Melbourne Rebels.

"It's disappointing. We did a lot of really good things but we then just turned the ball over," Horwill said of the loss to the Stormers.

"That cost us and we know the Stormers defend well. We just needed to be better. It's something we need to address as we move on."

"We go home now and play the Rebels at Suncorp Stadium."

"That's a must win game for us. If we want to stay alive in this competition we have to start winning.

"We've only got two games left, plus a bye, so we need to get as many points as we can. "

"We'll now get home, do what we can and work on improving on what we've done over here."
