    Western Force V Rebels 9th June 8:00pm

    Email from Ticketmaster

    Just a heads up, that the Western Force v Rebels match at nib Stadium will start a bit later due to a fixture time change.

    The start time has moved from a 7pm Kick Off to an 8pm Kick Off, on Saturday 9 June 2018. Your current tickets are still valid, you just need to take into account the new time.

    For further updates, or if you have any queries regarding the time change, please contact Western Force. Details can be found here .

    If Ireland show the form they had at the tail end of the 6N they will smash Australia.

    Complete performances & so much strength in depth. Typified by the three 13's they used durning the tournamnet, all of whom won man of the match awards.

    Leinster won the European cup last weekend... and will probably do so in the Pro 14 next weekend.

    Irish rugby very much on the up. Kind of Ironic that 2 of the previous England coaching set up that were replaced by Jones and his team have enjoyed major success in Ireland this year. Lancaster with Leinster, and Farrell with Ireland.

    Well it will be bed time for my two little ones.

    This has always been my biggest issue with Rugby too, games played at times that don't suit young families, since when was rugby exclusive played at 8pm across the country, they don't even play it that late in New Zealand (7:30pm being the latest)

    Anyways its a real shame if we start targetting tye 8pm audience which is usually just the Rugby beer drinking audience mainly situated on the East Coast (which half of em arent even showing up to these games anymore)

    Afternoon rugby or 6pm starts thank you very much. Like football and every other sport that doesnt pander to a certain demographic.

    Btw ill still go. It will just be me and my brother instead of myself, misses and 2 kids. So two less.

    Well it’s obviously been dictated by the Ireland Test match, & I would guess broadcasting clashes had the influence. This will definitely affect families with young kids which is a problem, regardless Force supporters really need to push the attendance up as much as we can as in the first 2 games. If we get a lower crowd guess how the East media are going to jump all over it!

    6pm is no good to me, 7:30-8pm much better.
    last 6pm kickoff on a friday night was a nightmare to get to.
    i sympathize about the kids etc but TBH it doesn't suit either of us.
    i am quite suprised at the bad timing of the WSR games considering we don't have to pander to the Eastern states TV (or do we).

    I would think that 8PM is good timing for anyone in Club land.

    Not good for kids but good mix to be able to have a meal out and about and then onto the game.

    Maybe timings are se more by the short time frame leaving little room for negotiation between team availability, broadcast requirements, competing events, drawing interest away and a whole bunch of other stuff.

    Perhaps they were painted in a corner

    They could consider showing all the tests on the big screens before the match and let everyone in early. And promote the fact in their media.

    Considering it's live (I think) on FTA and Fox; probably.

    Hooray, less than a week until game time.

    Will get to see some boys returning albeit with an ugly jersey.

    Ill say it, The Rebels beat a kiwi team... didnt watch it but i did look up the scorers. Billy Meakes for 2 and 1 to DHP. Be interesting to see who Dave picks.

    With 8 Rebels being included in the Wallabies squad for the June Tests, it's going to be interesting to see who gets picked for the game against the WF.

    Dave Wessells still has plenty of options in most positions (Jack D at Full Back ??).

    16 players (Red) were in the XXIII which had the win against the Blues in Auckland.

    12 remaining squad members (*) are former Western Force players.

    Anaru Rangi* Hooker (Wallabies??)
    Mahe Vailanu Hooker
    Nathan Charles* Hooker
    Sama Malolo Hooker
    Ben Daley* Prop
    Fereti Sa’aga Prop
    Jermaine Ainsley* Prop
    Laurie Weeks Prop
    Pone Fa’amausil Prop
    Sam Talaki Prop
    Tetera Faulkner* Prop (N/A - Foot injury)
    Tom Maloney Prop
    Sam Jeffries Lock
    Matt Philip* Lock
    Trevor Hosea Lock
    Geoff Parling Lock
    Lopeti Timani Lock/Loose Forward
    Amanaki Mafi Loose Forward
    Angus Cottrell* Loose Forward
    Colby Fianga’a* Loose Forward
    Esei Ha’angana Loose Forward
    Richard Hardwick* Loose Forward
    Robert Leota Loose Forward (INJURED)
    Ross Haylett-Petty* Loose Forward
    Harrison Goddard Scrum Half
    Michael Ruru* Scrum Half

    Jack McGregor Fly Half
    Taylor Adams Fly Half
    Bill Meakes* Centre
    Hunter Paisami Centre
    Sione Tuipolutu Centre
    Tom English Centre
    Henry Huchison Winger
    Kitione Ratu Winger

    Semisi Tupou Winger

    Yeah I dont think anyone should get too excited just yet. The Rebels beat the Blues, a team that also cannot beat NZL opposition and has been on its own kiwi losing streak for the last few years. In theory most teams in the comp should be kicking the Blues ass.
