Reds stoked with Southern Kings victory




Reds Super Rugby head coach Nick Stiles says that they a “just stoked” to have ended their losing streak by beating Kings in Brisbane.

The Reds led 14-10 at half time and went out to a thirty point lead before allowing the Kings back in with 17 unanswered points.

The late Kings resurgence cost the Reds the try bonus point but they have still moved up to second place in the Australian Conference.

“We’re just stoked with the win,” said head coach Nick Stiles.

“It’s been a difficult start to the season, so to run out at our home ground tonight and earn a win for ourselves and our fans is really rewarding.

“It was great to see Quade and Karmichael come back into the side and have an impact, but I was also pleased with the performances of some of our younger generation, guys like Alex Mafi and Izaia Perese, they handled the pressure of starting well.

“We’ll enjoy a bit of a break over the bye now and then get stuck into preparing for a massive game against New South Wales up here in two weeks.”
