The Force host the defending champion Reds in the fourth game of the day in what will be an Australian derby to keep us busy this early afternoon, as we wait for the local games to kick off.

The Force come off a narrow loss to the Rebels last weekend, where they came back from a terrible start to the match. They will see this match as an ideal opportunity to knock over the Reds, after they come back from their SA tour and under some pressure after successive losses.

The Reds are battling with injuries in key positions, as well as a suspension to their winger Digby Ioane, which has been unsettling as the defending champs have not quite hit the same form that we saw from them during last year’s campaign.

Western Force: 1. Pek Cowan, 2. Nathan Charles, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, 4. Toby Lynn, 5. Nathan Sharpe, 6. Richard Brown, 7. David Pocock, 8. Matt Hodgson, 9. Brett Sheehan, 10. James Stannard, 11. Alfie Mafi, 12. Winston Stanley, 13. Nick Cummins, 14. Samu Wara, 15. David Harvey.

Reserves: 16. Elvis Taione, 17. Kieran Longbottom, 18. Phoenix Battye, 19. Ben McCalman, 20. Ben Seymour, 21. Rory Sidey, 22. Kyle Godwin.

Reds: 1. Ben Daley , 2. James Hanson , 3. James Slipper , 4. Van Humphries , 5. James Horwill (c) , 6. Scott Higginbotham , 7. Liam Gill , 8. Jake Schatz , 9. Will Genia (vc) , 10. Dallan Murphy , 11. Luke Morahan , 12. Ben Tapuai , 13. Joel Rapana , 14. Dom Shipperley , 15. Rod Davies

Replacements : 16. Albert Anae , 17. Greg Holmes , 18. Rob Simmons , 19. Eddie Quirk , 20. Beau Robinson , 21. Nick Frisby , 22. Nathan Eyres-Brown

  • Aussies are screwed. Wales will not have a better chance to beat the Aussies. None of the Aussie teams are showing much form bar the Brumbies who still lost to a Sharks team yet to find its rhythm.

  • @Franshark (Comment 31) :

    I didn’t get one.. just a few win points and an assist or so.. Away win will bring in a few points..

    I don’t have enough Sharks players in my team to take full advantage of a win like that, but then again, I don’t suffer when they lose
