This weekend’s Super Rugby action kicks off in Wellington where the Hurricanes host the Western Force.

The Hurricanes come off a tough loss to the Blues while the Force are on an epic high after they beat the Crusaders last week. One has to expect that roles will be reversed today as the Hurricanes will be too strong for this Force outfit.

The Hurricanes have opted to continue with Barrett at fullback while the physical Tusi Pisi will make life difficult for Sam Norton-Knight. Norton-Knight was the catalyst in the Force win last week, and will hope to make an impact again today.

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 2) : How did a good Sharks team always get downed by a rubbish Reds side (Cheetahs too) It’s not the first time the Farce has pulled one over the Saders.
