Fresh off their 1st 2010 win, the Force travel to Queenstown to take on the Highlanders.

Neither team has had a season to write home about, but this promises to be an exciting game.

The Highlanders have all but given up homeground advantage and will host the Force at Lakes Leisure Events Centre, Queenstown. Why teams get talked into doing this sort of thing is beyond me?

This will be to close to call but expect the return of Cameron Shepherd to probably swing it in the Force’s favour.

  • After beating three tackles, running 40m, Vainikolo does everything right to score a try except hold onto the ball in the corner.

    great tackle by the Force to force the knock on

  • Jonker warns the Highlanders for repeated infringements and tells them another will be in the bin if this “behaviour carries on”

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 6) :

    Always been a FL stalwart of mine, had to take him out when he was injured early on in the season and not enough trades to put him back.
