The Western Force have proven to the league over the last 2 games that they can and will be a threat in the Australian conference. The Force demolished the Melbourne Rebels and had a great win on Saturday in Dunedin.
The Force now have 6 internationally capped players (5 Wallabies and 1 All-Black). But it doesn't end there. There are manyplayers who haven't quite reached a test cap who are still a threat on the field.
Angus Cotrell has started to show signs of brilliance, scoring tries and proving at only twenty-four years old that he knows how to play the game. Cotrell has only been in the league for two years, being drafted by the Force in 2012. Force fans hope that he will stay with the club for years to come.
Former Australia sevens international Junior Rasolea proved that he has some grit with a beautiful try off a second chance effort against the Highlanders. This was Juniors first Super Rugby try in only his twelth match. At only twenty-two years old we have seen the Centre flash signs of brilliance, and we all know there will be more to come.
Last but not least, recently Sias Ebersohn has started to show some form, kicking 100% from conversions and penalties on the weekend. If this kicking form continues it may help the Force to get the extra points they need to help them across the line.
What do you think of the Force's recent form?
Will they hold their own against the Chiefs?
Will Sias Ebersohn continue his kicking form on an outdoor field?
