Queensland scores 6 tries in 36-20 win over Melbourne in Super Rugby

  • Print

MELBOURNE, Australia - Stand-in scrumhalf Nick Frisby made the best of a rare starting opportunity by scoring two tries for the Queensland Reds, who beat the Melbourne Rebels 36-20 in Super Rugby on Friday.

Frisby replaced Wallabies star Will Genia, sidelined after ankle surgery, and allayed fears the Reds might struggle without Genia and his regular flyhalf partner Quade Cooper. Friday's match was the first since 2008 in which neither Genia nor Cooper featured in a Reds starting lineup.

Winger Lachie Turner scored a double — his first since 2010 — and fullback Mike Harris scored a try but gave up his perfect goalkicking record this season. He landed the conversion of Turner's first try, his 13th success from as many attempts in 2014, but missed his next four shots at goal.
