    Marcel Brache's hands were so bad that he should be sent to a North Korean labour camp.

    I agree and Brache and Rona spent most of the game aligned with Rona at 13 and Brache at 14. I noticed it early in the first half and thought it was odd that they would switch so quickly. I was very surprised when Morahan came off instead of Brache in the 2nd half based on their play in the first half (not that Luke was all that good).

    Yeh. Pretty much since the original bloke sold Miami. Son in Law was pretty friendly with him and asked his secret. "Give 'em plenty of fat"

    Apparently Morahan is injured as well

    So unfortunately I think Brache might be in our starting line-up for a while yet. Might be worth giving Masirewa another go??

    Marcel had an off day, sure. But he's been pretty handy this year in other matches. Defends well for a smallish outside back most times.

    Evidently Masirewa did his ankle playing for Wests on Saturday.
    Unsure of the extent of the injury.

    Super Rugby's best and worst

    Monday, 24 April 2017
    The New Zealand Herald

    Best forward
    Matt Hodgson (Force)

    After the Force had their future thrown into doubt a fortnight ago, captain Matt Hodgson put an emotional face on his side's fate, breaking down in a press conference and issuing a plea for the franchise to remain in Super Rugby.
    And on Saturday, in the Force's first action since, Hodgson turned that sentiment into a fiery display against the Chiefs. Expected to finish a distant second, Hodgson's fight and first-half try instead carried the Force to the verge of an epic upset. The skipper led his team with 48 metres, eight tackles and two turnovers won, again showing there's at least one person who truly cares about rugby in Perth.


    Always surprises me that Hodgo gets more recognition in NZ and RSA than in Australia.
    I reckon he's a victim of his own consistency.

    The Rugby.com.au's Aussie SR Team of the Week saw Hodgo displaced by Rebels debutant Will Miller.
    The game metrics would suggest otherwise:
    Ruck Involvements: Hodgson 36; Miller 24
    Turn Overs Won: Hodgson 2; Miller 4 (Top job!)
    Tackles: Hodgson 8; Miller 9
    Ball Carries: Hodgson 13 for 48m; Miller 4 for 3m
    Tries: Hodgson 1; Miller 0

    Just read that Hodgo set a new Force record for the number of contacts in the game against the Chiefs - 60.
    The previous record was 58 - set also by Hodgo in a game against the Chiefs.

    And from G&GR in the match review:
    Wallaby Watch:
    I donít bloody care if heís 35, Matt Hodgson was outstanding tonight. A cool head on the field, he was instrumental in the Forceís defence efforts. Special mention to Jonno Lance when he was on the field, and Billy Meakes had his moments too Ė both are Wallabies in waiting here.
