Injuries force Reds reshuffle

The Reds have made four changes for Sunday's match against the Hurricanes in Brisbane.

Curtis Browning (knee) and Karmichael Hunt (adductor) have been ruled out of the game after suffering injuries against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein last weekend.

Adam Korczyk will make his starting debut at blindside flanker, in place of Browning.

The injury to Hunt has forced a reshuffle among the backs, with Lachie Turner shifting from wing to fullback, Chris Feauai-Sautia going from outside centre to the right wing and Anthony Fainga’a brought back into the starting side at inside centre.

Reds – 15 Lachie Turner, 14 Chris Feauai-Sautia, 13 Samu Kerevi, 12 Anthony Fainga'a, 11 James O'Connor, 10 Nick Frisby, 9 Will Genia, 8 Adam Thomson, 7 Liam Gill, 6 Adam Korczyk, 5 James Horwill, 4 Rob Simmons, 3 Greg Holmes, 2 James Hanson, 1 James Slipper (c).
Subs: 16 Andrew Ready, 17 Sef Faagase, 18 Sam Talakai, 19 Marco Kotze, 20 Lolo Fakaosilea, 21 Scott Gale, 22 Campbell Magnay, 23 Chris Kuridrani.
