Kicking off the first home game of the season, the QLD Reds take on rivals Western Force at Suncorp Stadium.

Backing up from a rocky start to the season against the ACT Brumbies, the Reds are unleashing a fierce squad this Saturday featuring the debut of backrower Adam Thomson, following a stint playing in Japan.

James O’Connor and Karmichael Hunt will also be on debut for their first games on Suncorp Stadium turf.
