The Reds  long injury list is finally getting shorter, but things do get any easier this weekend when they face the Stormers  at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night. Playmakers Ben Lucas and Mike Harris are both expected to be fit but only one of the pair is likely to be named in the starting XV. The Stormers suffered their first loss of the season against the Crusaders last weekend but have been hit by injuries to key players, with both Jean de Villiers and Andries Bekker both set to miss the match through injury.

The Waratahs  will be looking to record their second win over the Rebels  this year when they meet at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Saturday night. Both sides are in the bottom half of the table and desperately need a win to have any chance of making the finals.

The Chiefs  lead the Super Rugby standing eight weeks in to the season and they take on the Sharks  in Durban on Saturday night, while the Brumbies , who lead the Australian conference, meet the Bulls  in Pretoria.
