Can Brad Thorn inspire the Reds in their interstate derby?

Super Rugby

The Melbourne Rebels welcome back Adam Coleman to the starting lineup when they face the Brumbies for a second time inside a month. Tom Wright will make his starting debut at inside centre, whilst Dan McKellar has opted to name Henry Speight over Chance Peni on the right wing. The Sydney Cricket Ground will play host to the local derby between the Waratahs and Reds on Saturday night. The Reds have called upon Isaac Lucas to make his starting debut at fullback with Bryce Hegarty shifted to flyhalf. Daryl Gibson has named an all-Wallaby backline which features Kurtley Beale at fullback and Israel Folau vacating the right wing spot.
