Mike Harris and Radike Samo will return to the Reds line-up for the visit of the Stormers on Friday.

Harris has been sidelined with a hamstring injury but he has been passed fit to wear the No.12 jersey, with Sam Lane preferred at fly-half after an impressive debut against the Brumbies.

Samo's inclusion at the expense of Liam Gill means coach Ewen McKenzie has had to shuffle his back-row, with Scott Higginbotham named on the blindside and Beau Robinson starting on the openside.

Ben Lucas and Jake Schatz also return to the squad after injury, but the duo have to settle for spots on the bench.

Change

The Stormers have moved South Africa winger Bryan Habana to the centres as cover for the injured Jean de Villiers.

Habana will partner Juan De Jongh in the midfield, with Gio Aplon returning from injury to take his place on the wing.

Coach Allister Coetzee has made one further change to his starting XV, with De Kock Steenkamp replacing the injured Andries Bekker in the second row.

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