The Western Force and Waratahs clash at the Cbus Super Stadium in Super Rugby AU on Friday. The Waratahs are back in the hunt for the title after a thumping win over the Reds last weekend.

Western Force Form & News


The Western Force are winless in four Super Rugby AU games so far. They have given a good account of themselves, but they lack the quality to get over the line and win.

In first match back at this level, the Force lost 23-14 to the Waratahs in Sydney. Since that result, they have lost 31-24 at the Reds, 24-0 against the Brumbies, and 25-20 against the Rebels.

The Force are unable to host games in Perth at the moment due to COVID-19. This situation is far from ideal and can to attributed to their results. They play away from Perth again this weekend.

The Western Force come into this match with no injury concerns. They had a bye last weekend which gave the players with niggles time to recover.

Waratahs Form & News


The Waratahs have had a really strange 2020. Their first win of Super Rugby AU came in a 23-14 victory over the Western Force in round two. They then showed fight in a 24-23 loss against a quality Brumbies side a few weeks ago.

Just when it seemed they had picked up their performances, they produced a horror show against the Rebels, losing 29-10 away from home. Last weekend, the Waratahs destroyed the Reds 45-12 in a rampant showin that no one saw coming, further adding to what has been a strange 2020 for them.

Lock Tom Staniforth was not 100% fit last weekend but should be back to take his place on the bench for this clash. Other than that the Waratahs have a clean bill of health.
