The Brumbies and Reds have named their lineups for Saturday’s Super Rugby AU clash in Canberra.
Reds coach Brad Thorn has made three changes to his starting XV and named highly-rated back Jordan Petaia, who is back from injury, on the bench.
In the only change to the backline, Scott Malolua replaces Tate McDermott at scrumhalf.
In the pack, Angus Blyth returns to No 4 lock, meaning Angus Scott-Young reverts back to flank, where he takes over from Fraser McReight. And Dane Zander cracks the nod at loosehead prop ahead of Harry Hoopert.
Meanwhile, the Brumbies have made just one change as Darcy Swain starts at No 4 lock in place of Murray Douglas.
