In the final Round of Super Rugby AU, there is still everything to play for as teams look to secure the third and final spot in the finals.
To kick off ANZAC Round, the Force will look to wrap up a maiden finals appearance with a win over the Reds on Friday at HBF Park.
Meanwhile, the Rebels will travel to Sydney to face the Waratahs at Bankwest Stadium, with a win and a Force loss booking their spot in the Qualifying Final against the Brumbies.
All the team news here from 5pm AEST.
Friday 23 April 7:45pm AEST – Western Force v Queensland Reds at HBF Park,ad-free, live and on demand on Stan Sport.
Irish legend Rob Kearney is a welcome return for the Force at fullback after overcoming a hamstring injury suffered in their previous clash with the Reds.
He is joined in the starting line-up by Toni Pulu, which pushes Richard Kahui and Jack McGregor back to the bench.
Along with this, Greg Holmes comes back into the starting side for Santiago Medrano as he prepares to once again face his old team.
Meanwhile, the Reds will be boosted by the return of centre Hunter Paisami, who missed their clash with the Brumbies due to a calf injury.
Thorn said Paisami (calf) had proved his fitness and was ready to be a threat with ball in hand or making his trademark dominant tackles.
Winger Jock Campbell has been left out to nurse a groin niggle.
Thorn's high regard for the energy and non-stop workrate of Angus Scott-Young meant finding a pack spot for him even away from the now-crowded backrow where Liam Wright returns as captain.
Scott-Young is at lock while two players who have filled that position this season, Seru Uru and Ryan Smith, are on the bench.
Thorn explained that recalled winger Filipo Daugunu had tidied up his game after being guilty of too many errors.
