The Road Safety Western Force U20s have been named to take on the Melbourne Rebels U20s this Sunday at Gosch’s Paddock, Melbourne.
For the first time this year the Van Der Heyden brothers will link up in the second row, with Hendricus and Liam in the four and five jersey respectively.
Another first this week, with all Pindan Premier Grade clubs represented in the 23, with UWA boasting six players.
The Future Force Foundation will have another strong showing with four players in the starting XV, including Shambeckler Vui and inside centre Jordan Holgate.
Head Coach Dwayne Nestor says that last week’s performance against the Reds was not good enough and he’s looking for his side to bounce back this week.
“As the team said earlier in the week, we need to review this game and then forget about it, which is what we did. If Tuesday night’s session is anything to go by, the men will be ready to perform on Sunday.
“I’m expecting this game to open up pretty early, so we’ve had a bit more of a focus on defence this week, but at the same time we still want to let the ball do a bit of the work for us and score some points.”
The Road Safety Western Force U20s kick off against the Melbourne Rebels U20s at 11:00am (AWST). The match will be live streamed on rugby.com.au
