Struggling Reds sign up pair on new contracts

THE Reds have received a rare piece of good news, with Chris Kuridrani and James Tuttle re-signing for the last-placed Super Rugby franchise.

Powerful winger Kuridrani has signed on for a further two seasons, while emerging halfback Tuttle has committed for three years.

Kuridrani has started for the Reds in six of his eight appearances this season, after making his Super Rugby debut in 2014, in the Reds' final game of the season against the Waratahs.

Tuttle is a versatile young back, capable of playing both halfback and five-eighth.

He too has come through the Queensland development system, having previously represented Queensland Schoolboys and the Reds' Under-20s.

Meanwhile, Reds captain James Slipper has endorsed the work that newly-appointed coaching consultant John Connolly has carried out, ahead of tonight's clash against the Rebels at Suncorp Stadium.
