Super Rugby Week 5

The QLD Reds  will be looking to overcome a long injury list when they face the Bulls  at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday night. Mike Harris and Ben Lucas were both injured during last week’s defeat at the hands of the Sharks and are unavailable this weekend, joining Wallaby flyhalf Quade Cooper on the sidelines. To make matters worse for the defending champions, flyer Digby Ioane has also been ruled out after being farcically suspended for five weeks for a ‘dangerous’ tackle in last week’s 27-22 defeat.

Just two teams remain unbeaten a quarter of the way through the season and they are both in action on Saturday night. The Highlanders  tackled the Brumbies  in Canberra, while the Stormers  will be looking to make it twelve wins on the trot against the Lions  when they meet in Johannesburg.

The Melbourne Rebels  and Western Force  meet at AAMI Park on Friday night, while the NSW Waratahs  host the Sharks  at the Sydney Football Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
