Queensland Reds: Jono Lance starts at fly half in final trial

WEARING the No. 10 jersey at the Queensland Reds has become a direct duel between fit-again Jono Lance and teenager Hamish Stewart.

Lance was on Wednesday selected to start at fly half in the Reds’ final trial against the Fiji Warriors at Ballymore on Thursday night.

It will be Lance’s first chance to shine at his old club now he has mended a broken hand, sustained during his off-season stint with English club Worcester.

Lance, 27, is a composed, straight-up player with starchy defensive qualities and an improving mind to create opportunities for players around him.
