Hurricanes vs Reds Preview

The Hurricanes looked in ominous form last weekend as they thrashed the Western Force away from home. The Reds looked pretty good in their victory over the Waratahs, but historically the Queensland side struggled against the Canes.

My best bet is for the Hurricanes to cover the -11 handicap in this clash.

  • Hurricanes have won 12 of their last 13 matches against the Reds.
  • Hurricanes have won their last 3 Super Rugby round robin matches in Australia.
  • Hurricanes won by 30 points last weekend.
  • Reds have lost 13 of their last 14 matches against New Zealand opposition. 

Head to Head

Hurricanes have won 12 of their last 13 matches against the Reds. That includes victories in their last eight encounters.

Hurricanes Form

The Hurricanes made the playoffs in 2023 where they suffered a quarterfinal defeat to the Brumbies. While the season went to a decent standard, it never felt like a dominant Hurricanes side.

The Wellington side will want to put a better foot forward this time around and challenge the top two spots. They began in impressive form, beating the Western Force 44-14 away last weekend.

Hurricanes Injuries & Team News

(1-15): Xavier Numea, Asafo Aumua (co-c), Tyrel Lomax, Caleb Delany, Isaia Walker-Leawere, TK Howden, Peter Lakai, Brayden Iose, Cam Roigard, Brett Cameron, Kini Naholo, Jordie Barrett (co-c), Billy Proctor, Josh Moorby, Ruben Love

Subs: James O'Reilly, Pouri Rakete-Stones, Pasilio Tosi, Justin Sangster, Veveni Lasaqa, Jordi Viljoen, Riley Higgins, Salesi Rayasi

Reds Form

The Reds will still be disappointed with their 2023 season. They were nowhere near the standards of the previous two years.

The Queensland side began this season with a thumping 40-22 win over the Waratahs at home. It was a very strong start from the Reds, and one they will certainly want to build on this weekend.

Reds Injuries & Team News

(1-15): Alex Hodgman, Matt Faessler, Zane Nonggorr, Seru Uru, Ryan Smith, Liam Wright (co-c), Fraser McReight, Harry Wilson, Tate McDermott (co-c), Tom Lyngah, Jock Campbell, Hunter Paisami, Josh Flook, Suli Vunivalu, Jordan Petaia

Subs: Josh Nasser, Peni Ravai, Sef Fa'agase, Cormac Daly, John Bryant, Kalani Thomas, Harry McLaughlin-Phillips, Mac Grealy


The Hurricanes are backed to cover the -11 handicap against the Queensland Reds.
