The Western Force play their first game of Super Rugby AU at home as they entertain the Brumbies at HBF Park on Saturday. The Force have performed rather well in their opening two fixtures and are tipped to make life difficult for the Brumbies.

Western Force Form & News

The Western Force have shown some grit and determination upon their return to Super Rugby. A three-year absence from the top table of rugby meant they had to say goodbye to their best players, but they have done well given the circumstances.

In their first match back, the Force were defeated 23-14 by the Waratahs after taking a 14-0 lead. Then they ended up losing 31-24 to the Reds last weekend in Queensland.

The issue for the Force coaching staff is their side's inability to hold onto leads. In both of their matches, the Force started really well, but fell away as the games wore on.

Ian Prior and Jono Lance are expected to continue as a half-back pairing after two superb displays. Veteran Greg Holmes is however expected to start at hooker ahead of Feleti Kaitu’u.

Brumbies Form & News

The Brumbies were in unbelievable form in Super Rugby 2020, but have struggled to hit the ground running in Super Rugby AU. While they have won their two fixtures so far, they do look rusty.

In their first match, the Brumbies almost surrendered a huge lead against the Rebels, but hobbled away with a 31-23 victory at home. A bye weekend followed for the Canberra-based side, who then needed a last-gasp try to down the Waratahs 24-23 in Sydney in their last outing.

The Brumbies are expected to remain largely unchanged. They have no serious injuries and having had a bye the week before last should still be fresh.
