The Highlanders travel to Perth for a game that finally has no impact on the play-offs.

The Lions will however be hoping for a Western Force victory to keep the Lions in 10th spot ahead of the Highlanders.

Will the Western Force give their departing players an appropriate send off?

Or will the Highlanders end on a high after suffering four consecutive defeats in their last games?
