Queensland Reds

Queensland Reds

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.

It was a season to forget for the Reds in 2017, with the Queensland side winning just the four games. That was good enough, however, to see them finish third in a weak Australian conference, but they were well off the pace as far as qualifying for finals went.

The 2018 Super Rugby draw can be found here.
