Reds get Horwill and Genia back but still waiting on Faingaa

8:54 am on 16 July 2013

Queensland will have Wallaby test players James Horwill and Will Genia back but are still waiting on the fitness of midfielder Anthony Faingaa for their Super Rugby playoff match against the Crusaders in Christchurch on Saturday night.

Faingaa is recovering from a hamstring injury which forced him to miss the Reds' final round win over the New South Wales Waratahs at the weekend.

Queensland haven't won in Christchurch since 1999. The game is effectively a quarter-final, with the winner set to face the Chiefs in Hamilton in the semi-finals.
