Ben Youngs is expecting a difficult game when the British & Irish Lions come up against Queensland Reds at Suncorp Stadium.

The Lions have romped to big victories against the Barbarians and Western Force in the last week but can expect a much closer encounter against a strong Reds side that includes the likes of Quade Cooper, Anthony Faingaa and Ben Tapuai. The Lions are 1/16 with bet365 to beat the Reds and 11/2 to win by between 11 and 15 points. "I was delighted to get on against the Western Force, but we know the game this weekend will be the biggest challenge we have faced on tour. We have a huge amount of respect for the Reds," said Youngs. "They have a very dangerous squad. The Force really took it to us in the first 30 minutes, but then ran out of steam, perhaps because they had their minds on their game with the Waratahs on Sunday."
