With just days away from the 2017 Super Rugby kick off, Reds Coach Nick Stiles admits his biggest headache is finding a second five eight for Wallaby centre Samu Kerevi.
Kerevi who has been regarded as one of the senior players in the Reds team says he still needs a lot to improve on.
Meanwhile the Reds have also named Eto Nabuli at number 11 while Chris Kuridrani has been named on the bench.
For the Rebels, Sefanaia Naivalu will start at number 14 while Ben Volavola has been named on the bench.
The Reds will meet the Rebels at 8.30 tonight in their pre season Super Rugby game.
The Reds will play their first Super Rugby game against the Sharks at 9pm next Friday while the Rebels will take on the Blues at 8.45pm next Thursday in the opening match.
