The Queensland Reds were introduced to Super Rugby in 1996 and are one of three original Australian teams to compete in the now expanded competition. The Reds rivalry with the NSW Waratahs is widely recognised as the most significant in Australian domestic Rugby Union.
While the Reds improved slightly in 2018, they were still well off the pace – finishing second last in the Australian conference, ahead of only the hapless Sunwolves.
Unfortunately for Queensland fans, there doesn’t look to be a lot to be positive about in 2019 either.
