One last bit of rugby action before we all enjoy the rest of the Friday off, the Force host the Chiefs, both teams coming off good wins in the previous weekend, and both teams targeting this match as another they can win.

The Force dealt with the Reds last weekend, handing over a bit of a hiding to nothing, but in the process losing their flyhalf James Stannard for six weeks. Replacement Ben Seymour did a great job against the Reds last weekend, and with the kicking boot of David Harvey rather warm right now, the Force are looking strong at this stage of the competition.

The Chiefs come off a win over the Waratahs, a match that was quite even until the last twenty minutes or so, when the Chiefs completely dominated a tired looking Waratahs team. They welcome back winger Lelia Masaga and hooker Mahonri Schwalger for this match, and are close to being at full strength currently.

Force: 1. Pek Cowan, 2. Nathan Charles, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, 4. Toby Lynn, 5. Nathan Sharpe, 6. Richard Brown, 7. David Pocock (Captain), 8. Matt Hodgson, 9. Brett Sheehan, 10. Ben Seymour, 11. Alfie Mafi, 12. Winston Stanley, 13. Nick Cummins, 14. Samu Wara, 15. David Harvey.

Reserves: 16. Elvis Taione, 17. Kieran Longbottom, 18. Phoenix Battye, 19. Ben McCalman, 20. Josh Homes, 21. Rory Sidey, 22. Patrick Dellit.

Chiefs: 15. Robbie Robinson, 14. Lelia Masaga, 13. Richard Kahui, 12. Sonny Bill Williams, 11. Tim Nanai-Williams, 10. Aaron Cruden, 9. Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 8. Kane Thompson, 7. Tanerau Latimer, 6. Liam Messam, 5. Brodie Retallick, 4. Craig Clarke (Captain), 3. Ben Tameifuna, 2. Mahonri Schwalger, 1. Sona Taumalolo

Replacements: 16. Hikawera Elliott, 17. Josh Hohneck, 18. Michael Fitzgerald, 19. Sam Cane, 20. Augustine Pulu, 21. Andrew Horrell, 22. Jackson Willison

  • @Franshark (Comment 6) : I’m afraid it had nothing to do with your absence. With the way they were playing they were going to lose anyway.
