The Western Force has defeated the reigning premiers Waikato Chiefs 18-15 at the 'Force Field' (NIB Stadium).
The Force did not give up a try with the Chiefs only points coming from penalties - Cruden (18, 32, 40, 62), Anscombe (44).
The Force's points total consisted of two tries from Matt Hodgson (13, 46) topped off by a conversion and two penalty kicks from Sias Ebherson.
Once again, looking at the stats sheet without a score it would seem like a strong win from the Chiefs. However the Force defense was impeccable, with the team in never before seen form.
Wrap-up and post match analysis coming tomorrow so you can have a rest and wrap your head around what just happened! So stay tuned!
