Reds 41-17 Bulls, Suncorp Stadium

Reds made a stunning comeback from being 17 points behind to go on to win their Super Rugby encounter against Bulls with a 24-point margin at Suncorp Stadium.

This is Reds' second win of the season as they move to third in Australian Conference while Bulls are at fourth place in the South African group.

Bulls suffered an early setback as they lost Lizo Gqoboka in the third minute but they dominated the opening exchanges with Embrose Papier (8'), Rosko Speckman (13') and Warrick Gelant (17') scoring tries with the third touchdown coming after the home side lost Chris Feauai-Sautia to yellow-card.

The home side though bounced back in the final 10 minutes of the first half with Liam Wright (29') and Isaac Lucas (39') dotting down as they reduced the arrears to just two points heading into the break.

Reds extended their momentum into the second half with Lukhan Salakaia-Loto strolling over the line. Bryce Hegarty missed the conversion but kicked a penalty goal in the 63rd minute.

As Bulls failed to score a point in the second half, Reds ensured they returned back to winning ways in the tournament with Alex Mafi (69'), Harry Hoopert (72') and Taniela Tupou (79') all scoring tries in the final 11 minutes to complete a 41-17 victory for the Australian side.
