Show Preview

The Reds host the Brumbies on Saturday evening at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 7:20pm (AEST).

Brad Thorn’s Reds have been in good form in their past two rounds through strong performances against the Rebels and the Force, keeping their oppositions’ score to a single digit.

This is unlikely to happen today against Dan McKellar’s Brumbies, who scored more than 30 points in three matches.

The only time they scored less than 20 points was their shock loss against the Rebels three rounds ago.

Tevita Kuridrani was dropped after that loss, but is back for the first time today, tasked with marking up against Jordan Petaia.

The Reds’ back line is potent, mainly due to the planning and organisation of the formerly underrated attack coach Jim McKay, who should be a Wallabies coach.

The Brumbies’ attack is no slouch either, evidenced by their table-top position in Super Rugby. This is a good result considering their first-choice flyhalf, the triple threat Noah Lolesio, is still injured.

Prediction
The Reds will play well especially at home, but I expect Brumbies will probably play better. For the Reds to deliver an upset they need to stop the Brumbies’ final-quarter onslaught, potentially using the front-row brotherhood of the Smiths.
