The Qld Reds  welcome the Chiefs  to Suncorp Stadium on Sunday afternoon, looking to bounce back from last week’s heartbreaking defeat to the Crusaders in Christchurch. Despite keeping the Crusaders tryless last week, the Reds went down 15-11 after a spirited performance. The defending champions were valiant in defeat on Sunday and welcome Wallaby forwards Ben Daley and Beau Robinson back into their squad for this crucial clash.

The Chiefs are the team to beat this year, having lost since February and sit at the top of the Super Rugby table. Despite not playing the most flamboyant style of rugby, the Chiefs just find a way to win and last week eleven’s 34-21 victory over the Lions meant that they haven’t been beaten in their past eight matches.

Prediction - The Reds have won the past two encounters between the sides, including a 19-11 victory in Hamilton last season and with a string of injured players coming back are finally starting to show glimpses of their best form. Reds by 2
