Queensland Reds came up with a 10-try performance as they trounced Sunwolves with a 64-5 margin in their Super Rugby clash at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday.

This is Reds' first win of the season as they move to the second place in the Australian Conference with seven points while Sunwolves are at fourth place after losing their second in three games.

The Australian side scored six of the 10 tries in the opening half and was also aided by sin-bin to Ben Te'o in the 32nd minute for a shoulder charge.

The opening 15 minutes saw Liam Wright (5'), Taniela Tupou (7') and Hunter Paisami (17') scoring tries while Jock Campbell kicked two conversions to make the scoreline 19-0.

Just as the half-time was approaching, Tate McDermott went over the line to take their lead to 26 points and following Te'o's yellwo-card, Reds scored two more tries through Lukhan Salakaia-Loto and James O'Connor as they finished the first half dominant with a 36-0 lead.

The home side soon took their tally to 50 points with a second from McDermott and Hamish Stewart (48') and Campbell was spot on with the conversions on both the occasion.

The only response from the visitors came through a try from Siosaia Fifita in the 65th minute but further tries from replacements Joshua Nasser (68') and Isaac Lucas (72') ensured Reds sealed a comfortable win to revive their Super Rugby campaign.
