The Force have a date with the Chiefs in Perth.

Will the Force take the vital 5 points from this match and keep their play-off hopes alive mathematically?

Or will the Chiefs end any hopes the Force have of making the play-offs and so doing strengthen their own chances of making it?

Kick-off in Perth at 11:40 SA time.

  • C’mon FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Giteau gets things going and the Chiefs calmly collect, but then Donald puts it out on the full, lineout Force on the Chiefs 22m. Good take by Sharpe and the Force attack, Giteau puts in a cross kick for Mitchell but he coughs it up, scrum Chiefs.

  • The Force backline goes offside falling back in defence and Donald will have a shot at goal. The kick is good and the visitors are on the scoreboard.

    7-3 Force

  • Mitchell TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mitchell gets the ball on the touchline with at least four tacklers ahead of him. He breaks the first three and takes the fourth tackler with him over the line to score.

  • From the other thread

    HEY HOLD ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I made a mistake in #76.

    If the Force and Brumbies win(without a BP) we might be 4th still. The Chiefs are only 7PD ahead of us at the moment.

    If they lose by more than 7 without a BP try then we will still be 4th. GO FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    A bit of a mix up at the back of the scrum but the Force keep it alive and go wide, Cross makes a break and passes to Mitchell who was not expecting it and he coughs it up. Scrum Chiefs.

    Solid scrum and its kicked, the Force are more interested in keeping possession and decide to run it and then use the forwards to suck in some defenders. Giteau takes it up but then he loses it and the Chiefs kick it again and then chase, the Force scramble to get back and Mitchell kicks it into touch in goal, the Chiefs have a scrum 5m out

    C’MON FORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The Chiefs have been camping on the Force line for the last five minutes, but the homeside’s defence holds out until the halftime whistle recues them

    HALF TIME

    Force 14 – 3 Chiefs

    The Force win their ball and go wide stretching the Chiefs again but their cross cover is good and they win a scrum.The scrum is good and its kicked away, the Force return the ball but then lose possession but then are let off the hook by a Sivivatu penalty. Giteau slots it, score 17-8.

    17-8 Force

  • Log updated. Chiefs now a point clear of the Sharks, thanks to the losing bonus. This result was good for us, though, cos we can still leapfrog them WHEN we beat them in two weeks’ time.

    Let’s just hope the Tahs, Stormers and Canes don’t have the semis sown up by then.

  • I reckon we are in for one of the most exciting finishes to this comp – up to the last game stuff here I reckon and that game could influence more than just the two teams playing, it will be make or break for quite a couple.

  • Yip

    The problem is that the wrong teams are facing each other in the coming weeks.

    Teams needing to lose have matches against teams that will GIFT them the wins and thus sink both the Sharks and the Stormers.
