Top teams having a few rough results in the past few weeks seem to be a recurring theme, with the exception of the Stormers, all the other conference leading teams have been losing. The Reds need to shake off their surprise loss against the Brumbies last weekend and have to beat the Force to keep the lead at the top of the overall table.

The Force have been impressive in the last few weeks, beating the Highlanders last weekend, drawing with the Brumbies and coming close to beating the Hurricanes, and will hold no punches in this Aussie derby.

This game kicks off at 14h05 and I predict a narrow victory for the Reds.

Western Force :1. Kieran Longbottom,2. Nathan Charles,3. Matt Dunning,4. Sam Wykes,5. Nathan Sharpe,6. Matt Hodgson,7. David Pocock,8. Richard Brown,9. Brett Sheehan,10. James Stannard,11. David Smith,12. Rory Sidey,13. Patrick Dellit,14. Nick Cummins,15. James O’Connor

Reserves:16. Ben Whittaker,17. Tim Fairbrother,18. Tom Hockings,19. Ben McCalman,20. Mark Swanepoel,21. Mitch Inman,22. Alfie Mafi

Reds :1. Ben Daley , 2. Saia Faingaa , 3. James Slipper , 4. Rob Simmons , 5. James Horwill (c) , 6. Scott Higginbotham , 7. Liam Gill , 8. Radike Samo , 9. Will Genia , 10. Quade Cooper , 11. Rod Davies , 12. Ben Tapuai , 13. Will Chambers , 14. Luke Morahan , 15. Jono Lance

Replacements :16. James Hanson,17. Greg Holmes,18. Adam Wallace-Harrison,19. Jake Schatz,20. Ben Coridas,21. Ian Prior,22. Dom Shipperley

  • Go Force. :cool:

    With Tahs winning with a bonus point, that has now put pressure on Sharks. We will have to win this game probably with a bonus point.
