The defending champion Reds defeated the Western Force 40-10, scoring five tries to one in a dominant pre-season Super Rugby outing in Perth on Thursday.
Despite being relatively competitive in the first half, after opening the scoring, the Force ran out of puff in the second half.
James Stannard opened the scoring with a penalty for the Force, but soon afterwards Mike Harris levelled matters with a three-pointer of his own.
Then Digby Ioane showed he has lost none of his try-scoring ability, to give the Reds an 8-3 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Harris then extended the Reds' lead with his second penalty, before captain James Horwill went over and Harris added the conversion to give the defending Super Rugby champions a 15-point (18-3) lead at the half-time break.
Just before the break the home team was reduced to 14 men, when flank Matt Hodgson was shown a yellow card.
After the break the Reds were quickly into their stride - with Harris kicking his third penalty three minutes after the restart and Greg Holmes scoring his team's third try a few minutes later. Harris made the lead 28-3 with the conversion.
The rout continued as Luke Morahan got in on the scoring action to gives the visitors a 35-3 lead, following the conversion by Harris.
After leaking 35 unanswered points, the Force finally got a try inside the Final 10 minutes - to Ben McCalman, converted by Stannard.
However, the Reds hit straight back with a fifth try through Jono Lance, to make the final score 40-10.
