The Western Force have found form recently, but will really be put to the test in this cross-conference match up where they will host the Chiefs.
The Chiefs made passed the Stormers with ease last week. They kept the ball off the Stormers for most of the night, playing impressive defence and brilliant attack.
This upheld the Chiefs 3-0 start to the season.
A hot Western Force kit currently sits 2-2. They have won the last 2 games proving that they may have what it takes to compete in the Australian conference.
However, they did suffer a huge blow when the judiciary convicted Ben McCalman guilty of a lifting tackle. McCalman had been in hot form and was named in the Australian conference Team of the Week at number 8.
MESSAGE TO THE TEAM
This will be a regular part of the page now and will hopefully happen once a week.
Imagine you were the coach giving a pre-game talk, tell them what they mean to you, or just get up them completely (they won't mind, they are big enough and ugly enough to take your criticism).
Luke's Message: 'you have gone into every match this season as the underdog. The last two rounds it has worked to your advantage and you have taken two teams completely by surprise with one demolition and one solid win. This week however, you are facing a much stronger team. They will be expecting you and you need to know how to work around this. The element of surprise is not on your side anymore, but you are still good enough to dig deep and put up a fight. Good luck Force.'
Can the Force prevail once again?
