The Reds have recalled Australia No.8 Radike Samo for the visit of Western Force on Saturday.

Samo started the last-minute 25-21 win over the Waratahs on the bench but he comes into the starting XV in place of the injured Scott Higginbotham. Samo's inclusion means Jake Schatz moves to the blindside.

The other changes for the Reds will see hooker Albert Anae and centre Jono Lance both start, while Eddie Quirk and Rod Davies return on the bench.

Western Force have made just the one change to their line-up for the trip to Brisbane, with Patrick Dellit returning to the centres.

Dellit proved his fitness for the Force A team and he will now come in for the benched Rory Sidey.

There is a further change among the replacements with Ben Whittaker taking the spot of the injured Justin Turner.

Reds: 15 Luke Morahan, 14 Dom Shipperley, 13 Ben Tapuai, 12 Jono Lance, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Mike Harris, 9 Will Genia, 8 Radike Samo, 7 Beau Robinson, 6 Jake Schatz, 5 James Horwill (c), 4 Rob Simmons, 3 James Slipper, 2 Albert Anae, 1 Ben Daley.
Replacements: 16 James Hanson, 17 Greg Holmes, 18 Van Humphries, 19 Eddie Quirk, 20 Liam Gill, 21 Ben Lucas, 22 Rod Davies.

Western Force: 15 Alfie Mafi, 14 Nick Cummins, 13 Patrick Dellit, 12 Winston Stanley, 11 Napolioni Nalaga, 10 James Stannard, 9 Brett Sheehan, 8 Ben McCalman, 7 David Pocock (c), 6 Matt Hodgson, 5 Nathan Sharpe, 4 Toby Lynn, 3 Salesi Ma'afu, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Pek Cowan.
Replacements: 16 Ben Whittaker, 17 Kieran Longbottom, 18 Phoenix Battye, 19 Angus Cottrell, 20 Ben Seymour, 21 Rory Sidey, 22 Sam Wara.
