Daley: Reds aren't dead

GOLD COAST - The Queensland Reds are clinging to the hope they can still sneak into this year's Super Rugby finals despite a desperate run of poor form.

Last weekend's 44-14 thrashing by the Blues in Auckland means the Reds are 12th on the ladder, 10 points outside the finals spots.

Prop Ben Daley knows results now have to fall the Reds way for them to reach the finals but he says the team hasn't given up hope quite yet. Daley is poised to return to the starting line-up after James Slipper received a three-week ban for a lifting tackle during the loss to the Blues.

He says Sunday's clash at Suncorp Stadium against the Crusaders can still be the turning point in a disappointing campaign.

"Teams can beat anyone in this competition. You've got lower-ranked teams beating top-ranked teams, so we're not dead in the water yet," Daley said.

Daley said the Reds squad was fully behind coach Richard Graham as pressure builds on the former Western Force mentor.
