The Reds have announced an unchanged match-day squad for Saturday's match against the Cheetahs in Brisbane.
The Queenslanders have returned home after a two-match tour to South Africa, where they lost 41-22 to the Bulls and 40-22 to the Stormers.

'The Cheetahs are a good side and we’ve had some close matches against them in recent years. The group’s sole focus this week has been on preparing well to deliver a performance we and our fans can we proud of.'
