There could be a few sparks when Queensland host Western Force in Brisbane on Saturday. The Perth-based franchise lured eight of the 2005 Reds squad, including skipper Nathan Sharpe, to their inaugural season squad and some are viewing it as a chance for Reds’ revenge.


Former Wallabies winger Ben Tune will make another long-awaited return from knee and hamstring injuries off the Reds’ bench in the match between the two win-less Australian sides.
