If I had difficulty writing a build up for the Hurricanes v Bulls game, imagine how much worse it was for this game! It’s a game in which the kak take on the kakker in a battle to see will not end up the worst Australian team.

The Force are back at home after their tour to South Africa and will see this match as a must win. The Rebels on the other hand, send a different team out onto the field every week, and if past games are any indication, this week will see the whipping boys getting a run.

Force to win this bore by a good 10 points.

Force: 15. Cameron Shepherd, 14. Alifeleti (Alfi) Mafi, 13. Nick Cummins, 12. Gene Fairbanks, 11. David Smith, 10. James O`Connor, 9. Brett Sheehan, 8. Ben McCalman, 7. Matthew Hodgson, 6. Richard Brown, 5. Nathan Sharpe (Captain), 4. Sam Wykes, 3. Timothy Fairbrother, 2. Nathan Charles, 1. Pekahou Cowan

Replacements: 16. Ben Whittaker, 17. Kieran Longbottom, 18. Tom Hockings, 19. Tevita Metuisela, 20. James Stannard, 21. Matt Brandon, 22. Pat Dellit

Rebels: 15. Mark Gerrard, 14. Richard Kingi, 13. Lachlan Mitchell, 12. Stirling Mortlock (Captain), 11. Luke Rooney, 10. Daniel Cipriani, 9. Nick Phipps, 8. Gareth Delve, 7. Michael Lipman, 6. Jarrod Saffy, 5. Kevin O`Neill, 4. Alister Campbell, 3. Greg Somerville, 2. Ged Robinson, 1. Nic Henderson

Replacements: 16. Luke Holmes, 17. Laurie Weeks, 18. Hugh Pyle, 19. Tim Davidson, 20. Sam Cordingley, 21. Peter Betham, 22. Afusipa Taumoepeau

  • I picked the Force by a smallish margin. Hope it’s a close game.

  • I think my mArgin of 6 to the Force might not be enough. 🙂

    Force 12 – 0 Rebels
    10min

    10 Try (kick to come)

    6 Conversion – O’Connor converts the try

    5 Try – Force carry on pressurising the Rebels and good running into space and good interplay results in Force lock Sam Wykes scoring for his team
