Fiji-born dynamic Queensland Reds lock Seru Uru returns from an injury and joins flyer Filipo Daugunu on the bench for their Round 11 Super Rugby Pacific clash against the Chiefs tomorrow.
Uru, who has already made a strong start in the competition this season proved his worth scoring crucial tries and providing impacts for the Reds in the last few rounds.
Queensland Reds head coach Brad Thorn has made two changes to his starting team.
Backrower Angus Scott-Young will make his first run-on appearance since Round 2 after overcoming a knee injury, while Josh Flook will also return to the starting side on the wing in place of Daugunu who moves to reserve bench.
Off the bench, abrasive lock Lukhan Salakaia-Loto and the dynamic Seru Uru will also return from injury as Queensland face the Chiefs at Suncorp Stadium for the first time since 2018.
Flook starts alongside former NRL star Suliasi Vunivalu and Jock Campbell in the back three, as Hamish Stewart and Hunter Paisami again combine in the centres.
The Queensland Reds v Chiefs match will kick off at 9:45pm.
Reds: Harry Hoopert, Richie Asiata, Taniela Tupou, Ryan Smith, Angus Blyth, Angus Scott-Young, Fraser McReight, Harry Wilson, Tate McDermott (c), Lawson Creighton, Josh Flook, Hamish Stewart, Hunter Paisami, Suliasi Vunivalu, Jock Campbell.
Reserves: Matt Faessler, Dane Zander, Feao Fotuaika, Lukhan Salakaia-Loto, Seru Uru, Kalani Thomas, Filipo Daugunu, Mac Grealy.
