The Reds have been boosted by the return of skipper Sam Cordingley from a calf injury for this weekend’s Super 14 clash against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

“He just trained with us and trained very strongly. He has allayed any concerns about him – he’s a definite,” Reds coach Phil Mooney told AAP from South Africa.

Following the loss to the Sharks last weekend and a draw with the Lions the week before, the Reds are keen to end their three-match South African tour with a victory.

The Cheetahs are 12th on the Super 14 ladder, two places behind the Reds who are 10th.

“I guess on the surface we were disappointed with the Lions but we played some good footy,” Mooney said.

“Against the Sharks we stepped up our game and made some improvements but the harsh reality is that we didn’t get any points out of that.

“If we step up our execution we will go a long way toward getting the points against the Cheetahs.” he added.
