The Reds host the Rebels in the Super Rugby AU playoff on Friday. The Brumbies await the winners in Canberra next week with the Reds clear favourites. Recent form suggests the hosts should beat a tired and homesick Rebels side.

Reds Form


The Reds are favourites to make the final against the Brumbies and it is difficult to deny them that tag based on recent form.

The Reds have beaten the Western Force 57-5, the Rebels 19-3 and the Brumbies 26-7 in their last three Super Rugby AU matches. Last week was perhaps their best performance as the table topping Brumbies just couldn’t deal with the Reds intensity.

Reds News


The Reds have named an unchanged line-up from last week.

Rebels Form


The Rebels may have won last weekend but it was an exceptionally poor performance. After cruising into a comfortable lead the Rebels only managed to win 34-30 against the Western Force, a team everyone has comfortably beaten in recent weeks.

Coming into Super Rugby AU the Rebels were expected to be the Brumbies biggest challengers but as the season has progressed the Melbourne-based outfit has struggled more and more. 

The Rebels have been unable to play home matches this season due to the lockdown measures in Melbourne and the players have hardly been home since the competition began. This has no doubt made a huge impact on their performances.

Rebels News


The Rebels have made three changes from the side that narrowly defeated the Force. Brad Wilkin returns to the loose-trio with Michael Wells dropping out of the squad. Frank Lomani comes in at scrum-half after James Tuttle was ruled out for a hamstring injury. 

Andrew Kellaway makes his return from injury at wing. 

Reds vs Rebels Head to Head


The Rebels hold a 6-4 advantage over the Reds in their last 11 matches. There was an 18-all draw earlier this season.

In their last match the Reds beat the Rebels 19-3 at the Suncorp Stadium.

Reds vs Rebels Odds


The Reds are favourites at 1.32 while the Rebels can be backed at 3.60. 

A draw is available with bet365 at 26.00. The handicap for this clash is set at 8 points.

Reds vs Rebels Match Up


The inconsistency of these sides makes this a difficult match to read but the Reds certainly carry the better form coming into this clash. 

The Rebels won’t have a shortage of possession but whether they can sort out their problems at set pieces remains to be seen.
