Harris ready to resume duties

Mike Harris has been passed fit to start at fullback for the Rebels against the Blues in Melbourne on Friday.

Harris, who was originally scheduled to play against the Chiefs last weekend, was ruled out just before kick-off with a thigh injury.

Elsewhere, outside centre Tamati Ellison has been ruled out with general soreness, with Dom Shipperley shifting to cover the vacant spot in midfield and Tom English starting on the wing.

In the pack, openside flank Sean McMahon has been given a rest as a precaution after he took a knock to the head and Colby Fainga'a will take his spot. 

Rebels – 15 Mike Harris, 14 Tom English, 13 Dom Shipperley, 12 Mitch Inman, 11 Sefanaia Naivalu, 10 Jack Debreczeni, 9 Nic Stirzaker, 8 Scott Higginbotham (c), 7 Jordy Reid, 6 Colby Fainga'a, 5 Lopeti Timani, 4 Luke Jones, 3 Paul Alo-Emile, 2 Pat Leafa, 1 Toby Smith.
