Reds hungry for glory: Faingaa

QUEENSLAND centre Anthony Faingaa has declared the Reds the hungriest for success in Super Rugby and stressed they won't be satisfied merely making the play-offs.

The defending champions are locked in a five-way battle for the last two finals spots and must beat the Highlanders and the Waratahs at their Suncorp Stadium fortress to make the top six.

But Faingaa said the seventh-placed outfit is driven to repeat the success of last year and show their true colours after overcoming an injury-plagued start to the year.

''It's coming to the pointy end of the season and everyone's desperate but if anything we're hungrier than any other team,'' he said.

''For us it's not just making the finals; we want to win this Super championship.''
