St.George Queensland Reds Form
The Queensland Reds return to Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night to face 2014 Asteron Life Super Rugby Champions the NSW Waratahs, in the oldest rivalry in Australian Rugby. This will be the 299th match between the two sides, as the Queensland Reds look to remain undefeated at home in 2015.
The Reds have won just one of their opening three games of 2015, defeating the Western Force 18-6 in round two. However, the Reds went down 47-3 to the Aquis Brumbies in round one & 20-13 to the Highlanders last weekend. The return to form of halfback Will Genia has been one of the highlights of their season to date.
NSW Waratahs Form
It has been mixed results for the NSW Waratahs to start their 2015 campaign, going down to a determined Western Force side in round one, but turned it around with a 38-28 victory over the Melbourne Rebels in round two. Michael Cheika’s charges will be well rested coming off a bye last weekend, and will be keen to get their season back on track.
Last time they met
The NSW Waratahs recorded their biggest ever win against the Queensland Reds in July last year recording a 34-3 victory at Suncorp Stadium. Kurtley Beale dominated in attack, scoring two tries in three minutes to set the victory, however the Reds were without influential playmakers Quade Cooper & Will Genia.
