Reds head coach Richard Graham says that their 43-33 bonus point Super Rugby victory over the Cheetahs sets them up nicely for their tour of South Africa.

The Reds recovered from a heavy loss to the Waratahs last week with a 10 point victory over the Cheetahs.

The Reds scored five tries through a double to young flyer Chris Feauai-Sautia, singles to Rod Davies and James Hanson and a penalty try.

Quade Cooper landed 18 points to become the highest point scorer in Super Rugby history for the Reds.

Coach Graham said he was pleased with the outcome, as his team heads to South Africa with two wins from their opening three games.

"We're heading on our two-week tour of South Africa with two wins out of our opening three games and a bonus point tonight, so that's a good result for us," Graham said.

"We'll review tonight's game and see what aspects we need to address. "

"I felt we improved in a number of areas and look forward to our two weeks in South Africa."

Cooper said he was honoured to set a new marker for the Reds in Super Rugby.

"I couldn't be more excited about being in the history books for something like that for Queensland Rugby," Cooper said.

"I've spoken about my love and passion for Queensland Rugby and to be in the history books as Queensland's highest points scorer in Super Rugby, I'm very proud of that."

The Reds now depart for South Africa tomorrow where they face the Sharks in Durban next Saturday.
