Good game to watch, the lead has switched 4 times already.

21-16 Force at halftime.

Force get the bonus point try, 31-16 with 21 mins to play.

Try Landers, 31-21

How many South Africans do Western Force have in their SupeRugby squad? I can see 4 here already.

Force manage to win with 13 men for the last 10 minutes. 31-29.

First time Force have had back to back victories since 2011.

THe ref tried his utmost to give the Landers a come-back win….but even reducing them to 13 men could not help them.

@FireTheLooser (Comment 7) : I disagree, both of those were definitely yellows, with the tip possibly a red.

Had the Landers by 6
