Tamati Ellison will make his first start for Melbourne Rebels when they face Queensland Reds at Ballymore on Saturday, the veteran former All Blacks centre partnering Mitch Inman in midfield.

Cadeyrn Neville, meanwhile, will play his first Super Rugby pre-season trial of the year having overcome a hamstring strain. The second-rower returns to action via the bench, as does Lopeti Timani after missing the trial against Hurricanes in Geelong last weekend.

Rebels: Angus Roberts; Lachlan Mitchell, Mitch Inman, Tamati Ellison, Tom English; Bryce Hegarty, Luke Burgess; Scott Higginbotham (captain), Scott Fuglistaller, Sean McMahon; Luke Jones, Hugh Pyle; Laurie Weeks, Pat Leafa, Toby Smith. Replacements: Steve Fualau, Paul Alo-Emile, Cadeyrn Neville, Colby Fainga'a, Ben Meehan, Telusa Veainu, Tom Kingston, Max Lahiff, Jason Woodward, Lopeti Timani.
