Reds Super rugby head coach Brad Thorn has named an unchanged 23 for tomorrow’s clash against the Melbourne Rebels in Sydney.

Following Queensland’s drought-breaking victory over New South Wales last week, Reds head coach Brad Thorn has stuck firm with the same side as they look to record back-to-back wins for the first time this year.

Lock Angus Blyth has passed HIA protocols this week following a head-knock in last Friday’s six-point win over the Waratahs and will resume his spot in the second row.

Brothers speedster Josh Flook has again been named as a finisher and is potentially set to make his Super Rugby and Queensland debut off the bench tomorrow.

“This is game-two for us and we’re focused on improving our game and knowing we’ve got a really tough opposition,” said Thorn.

“We’ve got a lot of respect for the Rebels. They’re a really good defensive side – good line-speed. Smart man at 10 there with (Matt) Toomua.

They’ve got a good set-piece – they’ve really stepped-up in their scrummaging, good line-out. “It was a good hit-out with them and the Brumbies. They’re a strong side and that’s how we’re approaching it.”
