    I thought Taefu had bombed that, but he certainly didn't.

    Also, I wonder we'd been under the posts had Rocket gone inside to Brache?

    I think poor Jack wasn’t having a good day, and Heath looked a bit rusty to start. Never mind boys, got the next one.

    Need to learn from their mistakes in this game for the next fixtures. Threw this one away a bit, could have had it.

    Wasn’t that a fairly heavily Brumbies laden team? Force did fantastic the first half, but again there’s that section of time where they lose focus, and then blew their chances. Even though I like the composure during attack phases, it seemed to slow to a grind, whereas the Brumbies, I mean Vikings, moved a lot quicker in attack. Maybe they were playing safe, but seemed to telegraph the next pass to the Vikings. Ironic how Sean has to throw in the comment that the Force have had a lot longer together, despite it being a bloody SR team they’re playing! Alcock just gets better every game!

    Apparently we've been taking so many Canberra players to make this Force team, oh golly. According to the commentary.

    Western Force concedes first NRC loss to Canberra Vikings
    Nick Taylor The West Australian
    Sunday, 16 September 2018 6:11PM

    Two key second-half moments saw a Western Force dominance fade and with it the chance to go top of the National Rugby Championship in the 29-19 loss to Canberra Vikings at Viking Park.
    The Force had gone into the break with a two point lead and overwhelming possession and territory coming from the work of their forwards.
    But an hour into the game, as they pressed to extend the lead, they were out-scrummed twice on the Vikings line and fortunes turned as the impact of the strong home reserves bench exerted its influence.
    The Vikings went on to score two tries to add to their first-half pair while the Force were held scoreless after running in three five-pointers before the break.
    The Force, who slipped from second to fourth on the ladder, cannot afford such a shift in momentum when they take on leaders Queensland Country on the Gold Coast on Saturday.
    And they will need to work on body height going into contact. In too many crucial moments they allowed defenders to hold them up and gain turnovers.

    The Boys did well against the Brumbies, err, the Vikings, who lets face it have been together for at least a year if not 2! This game and the games against the RA Chairman's 55 (or is it more now Ali?) and the Drua will give the best indication of where the Force are at for WSR. I think the Force roster is about 3 experienced Guys short.

    But was a close game and the Force certainly could have won it. This shows how much has been done is so little time.

    There were a number of Vikings players in the starting XV that are fringe Brumbies players.

    Qld Country away will be a big test for the Force they drilled the Drua. The Country scrum struggled against the Chairman's XV.
