    It's the one major weakness in his game as his work rate around the park (rucks, carries and tackles) is superior to NC's.
    He makes 25% more Rucks than NC.
    I thought that the lost lineouts when we were on our attacking 5, where both NC? though, Colemoan was off and RHP and Mafi were the callers/jumpers.

    Was that the only time we have beaten the canes in the regular season? can't recall to many wins over them

    'Canes are playing like shite this year.
    They can be over confident too.
    If the Force gell like they showed they can at times during the Ponies game we will give the 'Canes a canning.
    If we turn up like we did against the Rebels or Reds.... it will be us getting the spanking.

    at $5 on sportsbet it's worth putting down $20 or so.

    You get $5.50 if you bet on us winning by 1-12 points.

    This puts some perspective on things

    New-look Canes demand respect from Force
    Nick Taylor
    Western Force need to have well and truly shelved their 28-0 pre-season win against the Hurricanes entering tonight’s clash with last year’s Super Rugby finalists.
    And with good reason. The team they beat by four tries to nil is nothing like the one they will play in Palmerston North.
    Only four players from the trial are in the run-on side and six of the other 11 are All Blacks with more than 200 Tests between them.

    Cheese's first 2 line out throws last week were lost.
    Maybe they both need to improve...

    it appears that NC's lineout throwing is about as accurate as my putting!

    Friday off work and getting ready to watch the game with a few cold beers. Tahs v Highlanders to follow.....hope the Tahs get beaten hahahaha. Force need to get out of the blocks quickly and apply the pressure rather than reacting. Come on Mesirewa we need a couple of tries, this is the week. Go Force!
