Three key players likely to be back for Reds

The Queensland Reds will regain the services of three key players for Saturday's home Super Rugby semi-final against the Blues at Lang Park.

Two Test backs, winger Digby Ioane and centre Anthony Faingaa, along with flanker Beau Robinson, are all on track to return to the side after recovering from injury.

Ioane, who was man-of-the-match in the Reds' 37-31 win over the Blues in Brisbane in May, returns after missing two matches with concussion.

Faingaa sat out the past two matches with a hamstring tear.

An elbow injury sidelined Robinson for the Reds' past three fixtures, but he played half a match of club rugby on Saturday.
