Reds' Captain Kerevi will lead a youthful side against Highlanders
February 22, 2019 12:20 pm
Fiji-born and Queensland Reds captain Samu Kerevi is excited about all five of their debutants to face the Highlanders in Dunedin this afternoon.
Kerevi will lead the youthful Reds into a daunting first-up fixture at 6.35pm today.
Kerevi says he has faith that an uncompromising off-season under Coach Brad Thorn will pay dividends.
“I’m excited with the Queensland especially with the two young boys, Fraser and Lucas on the bench and obviously his brothers have come through and he’s probably the best and it’s a good opportunity for Sefa and Fraser to step into a new super rugby team and their input has been tremendous to the team and Fotuaika in the front row I’m really excited for him and it’s been a long road for Feao.”
Reds will battle Highlanders at 6.35pm today.
Tomorrow, Waratahs take on Sunwolves at 4.15pm and the Crusaders faces Hurricanes at 6.35pm before Brumbies meet Chiefs at 8.45pm.
On Sunday morning, Sharks play Blues at 1.05 while Stormers meets the Lions at 3.15am.
You can watch both the Waratahs-Sunwolves and Crusaders- Hurricanes matches live on FBC Sports on Saturday.
