Forwards back to bolster Reds for home match

THE struggling Queensland Reds will be boosted for tomorrow night's clash against the Highlanders at Suncorp Stadium with prop James Slipper (pictured) to make his return from a three-week suspension.

Openside flanker Liam Gill will also be back after missing the past two games with a calf injury. Gill will start on the bench, with Beau Robinson retaining his starting place after impressing in recent weeks.

Curtis Browning will also continue at blindside flanker after Ed Quirk ruptured his ACL at training this week.

Rod Davies has been recalled to the wing with JJ Taulagi dropping to the bench. That bench will include hooker Andrew Ready, prop Sef Faagase and utility back Sam Kerevi.

Halfback Will Genia will play his 100th Super Rugby game against the Highlanders, saying it would be the highlight of his career.
