Reds trio in doubt for Highlanders clash

7:00 pm on 25 March 2013

The Australian rugby winger Digby Ioane and fellow Test backs Ben Tapuai and Mike Harris are all in doubt for the Queensland Reds' Super Rugby clash with the winless Highlanders in Dunedin on Good Friday.

The Reds trio were all undergoing scans today after pulling up badly following Queensland's 23-18 victory over the Bulls on Saturday night.

Ioane has a knee problem while inside centre Tapuai and utility Harris both have hand injuries.

The coaching boss Ewen McKenzie says the scans are precautionary but admits there are concerns whether they will make the trip to the South Island on Thursday.
