The Reds visit the Cbus Stadium to tackle the Western Force in a Super Rugby AU fixture on Friday. This is a Force home match, but due to Perth’s current lockdown measures, the game is being contested in Queensland – the Reds' home.

Western Force Form & News


The Western Force started Super Rugby really well in terms of effort and performances, but it has all gone downhill of late.

The Force sit rock bottom with just two points, one of which was gained by losing 31-24 to the Reds in round 3 of the competition.

Since then, they have been beaten 24-0 by the Brumbies, 25-20 by the Rebels, and last week the Force crashed to a poor 28-8 loss to the Waratahs.

Veteran scrum-half Nick Frisby should come in for Ian Prior while Chris Heiberg, Johan Bardoul and Ollie Atkins will all be pushing to get a start.

Reds Form & News


A convincing win for the Reds in this clash will see them jump to the summit of the Super Rugby AU table. The Queensland-based franchise have won three of their six fixtures, with one draw and two losses.

Last week, the Reds fought hard to beat the Rebels 19-3 at home. The performance was impressive considering their total collapse when they went down 45-12 at the Waratahs last week.

The Reds are likely to continue with Jordan Petaia on the win after he made his comeback last weekend. Full-back Bryce Hegarty will have to settle for a spot on the bench after the Reds back-line impressed in his absence last week.
