Jones reveals his Red(s) hand

Reds coach Eddie Jones on Friday confirmed his starting XV for his team’s Super 14 Round Three encounter with the Brumbies at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday, after earlier naming only a squad.

As expected, Ed O’Donoghue comes into the side at lock to replace the injured Hugh McMeniman, while Cam Treloar takes O’Donoghue’s place on the bench.

The backline is unchanged from the one selected against the Crusaders last week, except on the bench where centre Charlie Fetoai drops out of the match-day 22, replaced by 19-year-old wing Brando Va’alu.

Reds: 15 Clinton Schifcofske, 14 Henari Veratau, 13 Ben Tune, 12 Lloyd Johansson, 11 Peter Hynes, 10 Berrick Barnes, 9 Nic Berry, 8 John Roe (c), 7 David Croft, 6 Mitch Chapman, 5 James Horwill, 4 Ed O’Donoghue, 3 Rodney Blake, 2 Sean Hardman, 1 Greg Holmes
Replacements: 16 Stephen Moore, 17 Ben Coutts, 18 Cam Treloar, 19 Tom McVerry, 20 Will Genia, 21 Quade Cooper, 22 Brando Va’alu
