The Reds have made two changes to their starting line-up for Friday's Super Rugby clash against the Brumbies in Brisbane.

Chris Feauai-Sautia has recovered from a hamstring injury to take his place on the wing ahead of Jamie-Jerry Taulagi, while Anthony Fainga'a will start at inside centre ahead of Mike Harris.

Taulagi starts the match on the bench, while the fitness of Harris will be monitored with the Australia international struggling with an Achilles problem. David McDuling is on standby to come into the match-day squad if Harris is ruled out.

Saia Fainga'a is also named among the replacements after missing two matches with a shoulder injury.

The Brumbies will hand a Super Rugby debut to Tom Staniforth - with the Australian Under-20s international named in the second row.

The 19-year-old comes into the side for Sam Carter, who has been ruled out through a knee injury.

The Brumbies also welcome back fit-again Wallabies Stephen Moore and Scott Sio, who replace JP Smith and Siliva Siliva in the front row.

Smith and Siliva drop to the bench, with Ruaidhri Murphy and Josh Mann-Rea missing out completely.

Reds: 15 Lucas, 14 Davies, 13 Tapuai, 12 A Fainga'a, 11 Feauai-Sautia, 10 Cooper, 9 Genia, 1 Slipper, 2 Hanson, 3 Holmes, 4 Simmons, 5 Horwill (c), 6 Quirk, 7 Robinson, 8 Schatz.
Replacements: 16 S Fainga'a, 17 Anae, 18 Owen, 19 O'Donoghue, 20 Browning, 21 Frisby, 22 Harris/McDuling, 23 Taulagi.
