The second game of the morning, and this time we head on over to Australia for a derby match between the Rebels and the Force. Late confirmation has been received that James O’Connor will not be taking the field, but I do not have updated team sheets below.

The Rebels are struggling in the campaign so far, and will pin point this game as a potential win for them, especially as the Force are not exactly the strongest opposition at the moment. The Force though, proved they still have a bit of bite as they beat the Waratahs at home last weekend, somewhat throwing the Aussie conference wide open.

This encounter should be a scrappy affair, and I can see myself writing this thread for it to only see the final score commented on, but nonetheless, it is a Super Rugby game, and it has a bearing on Superbru etc.

Rebels: 15. Richard Kingi, 14. Mark Gerrard, 13. Lachlan Mitchell, 12. James O`Connor, 11. Cooper Vuna, 10. Daniel Cipriani, 9. Nick Phipps, 8. Gareth Delve (Captain), 7. Tom Chamberlain, 6. Tim Davidson, 5. Hugh Pyle, 4. Luke Jones, 3. Laurie Weeks, 2. Adam Freier, 1. Nic Henderson

Replacements: 16. Ged Robinson, 17. Rodney Blake, 18. Alister Campbell, 19. Jarrod Saffy, 20. Michael Lipman, 21. Lloyd Johansson, 22. Julian Huxley

Force: 15. David Harvey, 14. Nick Cummins, 13. Will Tupou, 12. Rory Sidey, 11. Alifeleti (Alfi) Mafi, 10. James Stannard, 9. Brett Sheehan, 8. Matthew Hodgson, 7. David Pocock (Captain), 6. Angus Cottrell, 5. Nathan Sharpe, 4. Sam Wykes, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, 2. Nathan Charles, 1. Kieran Longbottom

Replacements: 16. Ben Whittaker, 17. Pekahou Cowan, 18. Toby Lynn, 19. Richard Brown, 20. Justin Turner, 21. Winston Stanley, 22. Samu Wera
