Slip­per of­fers chal­lenge to Kerevi

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Bris­bane: Queens­land Reds skip­per James Slip­per has chal­lenged Samu Kerevi to make his match-win­ning per­for­mance against the High­landers a stan­dard he re­tains through­out the Su­per Rugby sea­son. Kerevi scored a try and set up the Reds two other five-point­ers in the first half of Satur­day’s 28-27 vic­tory over the 2015 champions, a vir­tu­oso 40-minute per­for­mance in which he ac­crued 150 me­tres and broke seven tack­les.

Slip­per, play­ing his first game of the sea­son af­ter post-World Cup shoul­der and knee surgery last year, said he wasn’t sur­prised by the 22-year-old’s per­for­mance, and that he wanted to see the same kind of dis­play on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. “We all knew he had the po­ten­tial to do this,” Slip­per said. - Planet Rugby
