The Queensland Reds will take on NSW Waratahs this weekend without the leadership of captain James Horwill.
Horwill’s ankle has healed slower than expected extending his lengthy lay-off. It’s likely that he will only again feature when the Reds host the Hurricanes in Brisbane next weekend.
Meanwhile Anthony Faingaa is to return to the starting line-up for this battle against the Waratahs on Saturday after overcoming a recent hand injury. He will replace Horwill as captain of the Reds.
Side still to be announced…
