Reds vs Western Force Tips


The Force have challenged some top teams this season but that has mostly happened in Perth. Away from home they have struggled, often conceding big defeats.

I am backing the Reds to cover the -13 handicap.

  • Reds have won 2 of their last 3 matches.
  • Western Force have won their last 2 matches.
  • Western Force have lost all 6 away matches this season.

Head to Head


Reds have won three of their last four games against the Western Force. In Perth earlier this season, it was however the Force who won 40-31.

Reds Form


The Reds are fifth on the table, five points ahead of the Rebels and 11 behind the Chiefs. With just two matches to play, unless the Rebels pull off two victories and the Reds fail to win both games, the Reds will finish fifth.

The Reds have won two of their last three games. They kicked May off with a stunning 33-28 away win against the Crusaders before defeating the Rebels 26-22 at home.

Last week the Reds came up against a determined Fijian Drua side. Drua won the game 28-19 on home soil.

Reds Team News


This is a big game for the Reds. Victory will all but secure them fifth place so they can then rest plenty of players next weekend.

Western Force Form


The Western Force have achieved some good results this season, especially of late. They are currently just outside the playoff spots on 19 points, two behind Fijian Drua. 

With just two games to go, the Force will have to beat the Reds and/or the Brumbies next weekend, depending on how Drua’s results go. However, victory against either of these sides will be a tough ask for the Force.

That said, the Western Force did manage to upset the odds earlier this season on home soil against the Reds. Last week the Force beat the Waratahs 27-7 at home and the week before Fijian Drua 48-10 at home. It is their away form that has been very poor.

Western Force Team News


Western Force will have to go all out in the next two weeks to get at least one positive result. That may be enough if Fijian Drua fail to get any points.

Verdict

The Reds are backed to cover the -13 handicap.
