The Rebels clash with the Reds in a Super Rugby AU fixture at Brookvale Oval on Friday. Due to a coronavirus spike in Melbourne, the fixture will not be played in the Rebels' home city, but the 'hosts' should still have too much quality for the Reds to handle.

Rebels Form & News


The Rebels will feel a little down with the way they started their Super Rugby AU season last weekend. They lost 31-23 to the Brumbies at the GIO Stadium in Canberra.

The Rebels fought hard in the second half to get back into the game, but the damage was done in the first half.

Prior to Super Rugby being cancelled due to the pandemic, the Rebels won two in a row. They first won 28-22 at the Highlanders before brushing aside the Lions 37-17 in Melbourne.  

Rebels head coach David Wessels may look to tweak one or two things but resting players is unlikely to come into the reckoning just yet.

Reds Form & News


The Reds kicked off their Super Rugby AU season with a 32-26 win over the Waratahs in Sydney last weekend.

The Reds managed to score four tries, which will excite their supporters. 

In their two games before end of Super Rugby, the Reds downed the Bulls 41-17 in Brisbane and narrowly went down 24-20 to the Crusaders in Christchurch.

The Reds have not reported any serious injuries after their victory at the weekend so Brad Thorn is unlikely to make any drastic changes.

Rebels vs Reds Match Up


The Rebels play exciting rugby, but are known to struggle against physical sides. The Reds are poor in terms of their forward play, so this should be a routine win in the end for the Rebels.
