The St.George Queensland Reds have made two changes to their starting side for Saturday’s home match against the Sharks at Suncorp Stadium.

Harry Hockings will start at lock for the first time this season, while backrower Angus Scott-Young has been recalled into the 23 for this weekend’s clash.

There are a further two changes to the reserves with Scott-Young’s promotion to blindside flanker seeing Lukhan Salakaia-Loto set to come on a finisher and provide impact off the bench.

After serving a five-week suspension following a dangerous tackle during Queensland’s opening pre-season fixture in Gladstone, Filipo Daugunu comes back into the side for Saturday’s match.

Reds head coach Brad Thorn said: “We’ve got a tough opponent in the Sharks. They’re on the last leg of their tour and will be looking to finish strongly.

“It’s great to be at home again this week. We love playing in front of our Queensland fans. We look forward to another good crowd on Saturday night.

“We’ll continue to work hard this week and grow our game, as the guys push towards their potential,” said Thorn.

Queensland play the Sharks on Saturday night at 6:15pm AEST and will be broadcast live on Fox Sports. The match is part of a Double Header at Suncorp Stadium with the St.George Queensland Reds taking on the Rebels in their Super W Round 3 encounter at 3:40pm.
