The Western Force face the Rebels at the Leichhardt Oval in Super Rugby AU on Friday as they search for their first win of the competition. Technically, like last week, this is a home game for the Western Force but it has been moved to Sydney due to COVID-19 restrictions in Perth.

The Rebels on the other hand found their form last weekend as they defeated the Waratahs 29-10 in a convincing performance. The Melbourne-based outfit should have too much firepower for a gutsy Force team.

Western Force Form & News


The Western Force have been defeated in their opening three Super Rugby AU fixtures. That was expected given their time away from the top table of rugby.

They did impress against the Waratahs, however, going down 23-14 in Sydney on the opening weekend, before being defeated 31-24 by the Reds in their second fixture.

The Force were given a lesson in their last match by a dominant Brumbies side, who claimed a 24-0 victory in Sydney last weekend.

It is likely that the Force will freshen things up with week with Richard Kahui and Kyle Godwin likely to feature in the back-line while Tom Sheminant and Ollie Atkins could come into the front-row.

Rebels Form & News


The Rebels will be happy with their performance last weekend when they beat the Waratahs 29-10 at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The Rebels forwards were excellent in the match.

Before that win, the Rebels went down 31-23 to the Brumbies before drawing 18-18 away at the Reds. The Rebels know this is a great chance for them to grab a full-house of points, but they must show the plucky Force some respect.

The Rebels have no new injury concerns while young lock duo Trevor Hosea and Jordan Uelese are certain to keep their places after producing impressive displays against the Waratahs.
