Reds Super rugby head coach Brad Thorn has named a 27 man squad for their upcoming two-week tour of South Africa.
The Reds depart for Johannesburg tomorrow morning to begin preparations for their first match against the Bulls in Pretoria early next Sunday morning, before they travel to Durban for their Round 10 clash against the Sharks.
The squad features the matchday 23 from last night’s 24-12 win against the Stormers, minus Filipo Daugunu, Isaac Lucas and Fraser McReight.
Lucas and McReight will remain in Brisbane and join fellow Reds squad member Harry Wilson for a Junior Wallabies camp next week in preparation for the Oceania U20s Championships on the Gold Coast later this month.
While Daugunu is out due to injury after suffering a broken arm during the opening half of last night’s match at Suncorp Stadium.
Sidelined for the Stormers game, Angus Scott-Young (concussion) and Chris Feauai-Sautia (hamstring) will both travel to South Africa.
Adam Korczyk, Teti Tela and Aidan Toua have all been brought in, while prop Gav Luka and flyer Jock Campbell could potentially make their Super Rugby and Queensland debuts following their inclusions.
The Reds play the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria and then take on the Sharks at Kings Park in Durban the following Friday.
