Pair looking forward to playing at Suncorp

A couple of former league players are looking forward to playing at Suncorp Stadium in this weekend's feature match in Super Rugby.

The top of the table Queensland Reds host the fourth-placed Crusaders on Sunday with Sonny Bill Williams and Brad Thorn returning to a ground where they played regularly in the NRL.

It will probably be Thorn's last outing on the ground where he played State of Origin for Queensland and helped Brisbane win three titles.

Sonny Bill says he also likes the stadium.

However Queensland have won 11 straight at the ground and a record Australian Super Rugby crowd of more than 42,000 is expected on Sunday.

In their last clash there in 2010, the Reds beat the Crusaders 41-20.
