Reds openside flanker Liam Gill wants his team to bounce back from their 50-5 defeat to the Chiefs when they host the Rebels this Friday.

With several of their players moving on at the end of the season, this will be their chance to say goodbye on a positive note in Brisbane.

And Gill wants to right some wrongs from their hammering at home to the Chiefs when they face a Rebels side also reeling from a big loss.

"We've got to learn from how ugly that 50-point loss was and how a top team operates clinically on the field," he told The Courier-Mail.

"We have definitely got it in us to regroup and farewelling (Greg) Holmsie the right way adds meaning and something special to the game.

"You have to sink the claws into the other Aussie teams to give a season any momentum and that is where thinking about finals begins."

Gill, who joins Toulon at the end of this season on a two-year deal, added they must improve their game: "We have to start the turnaround against the Rebels and do what we failed to do against the Chiefs – build pressure, learn to absorb pressure and fight out of it."
