Queensland Reds name unchanged squad for Super rugby final

12:48 pm on 7 July 2011

The Queensland Reds have named an unchanged lineup for Saturday night's Super rugby final against the Crusaders in Brisbane.

The Reds coach Ewen McKenzie has kept with the same 22-man squad that beat the Blues 30-13 in last week's semi-final.

It's the first time this season the Reds have fielded the same 22-man squad in consecutive weeks.

The Crusaders have also stuck with the same side that overcame the Stormers in Cape Town last weekend but halfback Andy Ellis is in doubt and will have to pass a fitness.

The 27-year-old All Black was bracketed with Kahn Fotuali'i in the side as he recovers from knee and shoulder bruising.
