Promising fetcher Fraser McReight is one of two signings expected to be unveiled by the Reds on Thursday.

RUGBY.com.au understands McReight - Rugby Australia's 2018 U20s player of the year - and Bond prop Gavin Luka will be the two players revealed as the club's final two forwards for the 2018 season.

McReight is believed to have signed through to the end of 2020, with Luka putting pen to paper on a one year deal for 2019.

McReight oozes quality as a bonafide openside flanker fetcher who was outstanding in the Junior Wallabies' U20s World Championship campaign.


The Brothers product has the talent to push likely No. 7 Liam Wright and is certainly one to watch when he is afforded his first crack at Super Rugby level.

While McReight has burst onto the scene Luka has taken a few more years to turn Australian Schools caps in 2014 into his first professional contract.

The Nudgee College product has starred for Bond University in Queensland Premier Rugby since then and this call up to coach Brad Thorn's top squad is well deserved.
