The Queensland Reds have ruled Mike Harris out from the Reds match against the Waratahs on Saturday night. Coach Richard Graham was forced to make the change after Harris complained of ankle soreness during a weights session on Thursday.

Harris has been replaced by Anthony Fainga'a at inside centre, who will start his first game of the season for the Reds, while Ben Lucas moves onto the bench.

Harris pulled up fine from the Reds' 27-17 win over the Brumbies last weekend and trained well early in the week, but complained of ankle soreness. He missed morning training to go for a scan on the ankle and has since been ruled out.

Reds: Aiden Toua; Lachie Turner, Ben Tapuai, Anthony Fainga'a, Dom Shipperley; Quade Cooper, Will Genia; Jake Schatz, Liam Gill, Ed Quirk; James Horwill, Rob Simmons, Greg Holmes; Saia Fainga'a, James Slipper. Replacements: James Hanson, Ben daley, Jono Owen, Ed O'Donoghue, Beau Robinson, Nick Frisby, Ben Lucas, Chris Feaui-Sautia.
