Tough Reds prop to start

Friday, April 25, 2014

BRISBANE - Queensland coach Richard Graham has rushed aggressive prop Ben Daley back as one of four changes for tomorrow's must-win Super Rugby clash with the Hurricanes.

Daley has been sidelined for five weeks with a knee injury but will make a shock return at loose-head in a reshaped Reds front-row at Westpac Stadium.

Graham likes the former Wallaby's rugged enthusiasm and expects him to set the tone in getting his side's "competitive juices flowing".

"The first 30-40 minutes in the game, his instruction is to be physical," he said. "Ben's one of those guys who lead from the front physically.

"I like that approach and, if you have two forwards with that latent aggression, then the rest of the group jump in behind."

Graham's other major surprise is dumping winger Rod Davies to the bench and promoting rookie Jamie-Jerry Taulagi.
