Vunivalu to start for Reds

Former Melbourne Storm winger Suliasi Vunivalu will make his starting line-up debut for Queensland Reds against the Brumbies in what has been dubbed to be a Super Rugby AU grand final rematch tomorrow.

The former NRL premiership-winning winger debuted for the Reds off the bench in Queensland’s last-start 23-21 win over the Rebels and did enough to earn a spot against the Brumbies.

News.com.au reveals with the Fijian-Vunivalu’s inclusion, Jordan Petaia will shift from the wing to the centre but Hamish Stewart loses his spot.

Vunivalu missed the opening of Red 41-7 win against Waratahs after being stood down following an altercation with a security guard that led to him being charged with common assault.

Another Fijian, Filipo Daugunu who scored a double against the Waratahs in the first round has again been named in the starting line-up for the Reds.  

Reds: Dane Zander, Alex Mafi, Taniela Tupou, Angus Blyth, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, Angus Scott-Young, Fraser McReight, Harry Wilson, Tate McDermott, Filipo Daugunu, Hunter Paisami, Jordan Petaia, Suliasi Vunivalu, Jock Campbell

Reserves: Brandon Paenga-Amosa, Harry Hoopert, Zane Nonggorr, Ryan Smith, Seru Uru, Moses Sorovi, Bryce Hegarty, Josh Flook

The Queensland Reds will face the Brumbies at 6.45pm on Saturday.
