St.George Queensland Reds confirm 2019 pre-season fixtures; Sunday morning Fan Day announced at Ballymore
The St.George Queensland Reds will ramp-up their preparations for the 2019 Vodafone Super Rugby season with two exciting pre-season games confirmed for February.
Rugby returns to its spiritual Queensland home next month, as the Reds host two-time Super Rugby champions the Chiefs on Friday February 8 at Ballymore.
The Reds will also travel to country Victoria to take on the Melbourne Rebels on Friday February 1 in Ballarat.
In between the two pre-season fixtures, the Reds will also hold their annual Fan Day on Sunday February 3 in what shapes as an action-packed week for Queensland Rugby.
Reds Head Coach Brad Thorn said: “It’s an exciting time of the year. We’ve worked hard in pre-season. We’re looking forward to putting together what we’ve worked on over the past couple of months against two good sides.”
The Reds kick off their Super Rugby season in Dunedin against the Highlanders, before hosting 2018 champions the Crusaders at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday March 2.
In addition to the Crusaders, the Reds also play at home against fellow Kiwi team the Blues, plus Australian rivals the Waratahs, Brumbies and Rebels, South African side the Stormers, as well as the Sunwolves and Jaguares.
