Fresh from their highly successful trip to South Africa, the Queensland Reds return to Suncorp Stadium to take on last year's competition winners, The Bulls in Super Rugby on Saturday 16 April.
The Bulls are renowned for trying to dominate a game via their huge forward pack, but the yound Reds forwards so far this year have stood their ground, allowing playermakers Will Genia and Quade Cooper to do their thing.
The Reds have surprised all but the true believers by leading the Australian conference and table overall after seven rounds of the Super Rugby competition. But this game will be true test of how far they have come and what their chances are likely to be come the business end of the season.
The Reds beat the Bulls last year, so be at Suncorp Stadium to see if they can repeat that effort against one of the world's champion provincial Rugby teams.
