Japanese Super Rugby franchise the Sunwolves have named an unchanged team to play the Reds in Brisbane on Saturday.

The Sunwolves almost beat South Africa’s Stormers last week but had to settle for a late draw.

Coach Mark Hammett has aimed for consistency and retained the starting team from last week.

The only change to the match day squad is the return of front rower Keita Inagaki who comes on to the Replacements bench for the first time in six weeks.

Inagaki’s return to the bench means that Ziun Gu is the only player from last week who is not included this week.

Harumichi Tatekawa retains the captaincy for a second week running which keeps squad captain Shota Horie on the replacements bench.
