Reds call on O’Connor, Horwill

James O'Connor and James Horwill are back in the Reds XV for Saturday's match against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

Coach Richard Graham has made four changes to the side that went down to the Vodacom Bulls at Loftus last weekend.

Horwill, who joined the squad earlier this week following an injury to Dave McDuling, has been thrust back into the side after completing his one-week suspension.

In the only other change among the forwards, James Hanson will start at hooker in place of the injured Saia Fainga’a, with Andrew Ready set for a possible debut from the bench.

O'Connor has recovered from injury and will start on the wing, with Chris Feauai-Sautia shifting to centre and Anthony Fainga’a dropping to the bench.

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