The Blues stop over in Australia on their way back from a reasonably successful trip to South Africa.

The Western Force will be trying to get off the bottom of the Australian conference table with a win.

The Blues have the more attractive goal of getting to the top of the New Zealand conference. This they can achieve with a good win over the Western Force.

The Force have not won a game yet this season. It won’t happen today either.

  • Don’t hold much hope for The Force – hopefully some champagne rugby for spectator value… Last night in Newlands saw me switch over and watch The Godfather, not for a lack of tenacity it must be said, but because I had a long hard week at work and was looking for some escapism – The Stormers game required too much concentration – it was the analytical mans game last night, and I was too tired for that…

  • I at least got a margin point from the game…

    At least I moved up from 155 last Saturday morning…to 144 this Saturday morning…

  • a draw… I did not see that coming. This has been a tight tournament to date. No such thing as a gimme… The Force obviously reeling from the blowout against The Sharks, and possibly The Blues suffering what we Saffas hat to endure for years, the travel lurgy… Didn’t watch the game, site meetings… Was it at least good rugby?

  • @Hmmm (Comment 43) : unlucky then, Stephen Brett was the exception. Blues should play him flyhalf and have Luke at inside centre, but think NZRU are wanting Luke to be the backup to Dan the man. Donald too erratic as is well documented…
