    Looks like letting Tess and Grant get fit for the Sunwolves game and give some more of the squad a chance to show their stuff.

    Steve Mafi stepped up last week and hence the run-on over Ross HP.

    Will miss the impact of Ben Tapuai (injury?).

    Masirewa's 2nd YC for the same offence rightly not viewed well.

    Stocks very thin at Hooker, 9 & 10.

    Not at Hooker these 2 boys are both better than Tessman.

    With this team they might give Kala Bulls a close run.... this is going to be a massacre. Back to tiddlywinks for me... Bulls by 15+

    That's a really strange team lineup-have the coaches given up on some guys? Ammon could show some good stuff, just hope they don't get hammered.

    1: Van Wyk
    2: Scoble
    3: Falkner
    4: Haylett-Petty
    5: Coleman
    6: Hardwick
    7: Hodgson
    8: McCalman
    9: Louwrens
    10: Prior
    11: Lacey
    12: Godwin
    13: Matuauto
    14: Morahan
    15: Haylett-Petty

    16: Heiberg (anyone else preferred but none available)
    17: Rangi
    18: Ainsley
    19: Mafi
    20: Koteka
    21: Mathewson
    22: Rasolea
    23: Apineru

    Might as well start looking to the future and start making the core of the team a bit more West Australian. Let this core develop, you never know. Give it some time to gel and we just might come out the other end with a good core to the future team.

    The way the spirit played attacking rugby that may not be such a bad thing.

    I was really impressed by Scoble and the way he was running to the line and offloading. He has obviously studied and practiced the plays well and fit in straight away. No doubt part of the reason he is starting.

    I'm presuming 16 & 17 are the other way round, although these days with three front-rowers on the bench, having the replacement hooker in the 17 jersey makes more sense

    A rookie Saffa ref with Australian assistants? Why not give one of the Australian refs the gig? Why fly van Heerden over from the republic to ref this match?

    Hoffman got demoted after such a great performance last week. Hopefully he is better as an AR when judging fwd passes, and can start to understand the idea of the advantage rule.

    I'd be interested to see how the new ref goes, I know there'd be more focus on those neck-grabs in the ruck clean-out.

    That's great as the scum hasn't been much of a problem for the Force (89%) (Best Reds 95%; Worst Brumbies 82%).
    Heath has been one of the more active Hookers in Aust SR teams around the park with good tackles and ruck involvements.
    His long throws can be a problem (and I struggle to know why we keep calling them).
    But his throwing has been better this year than in the past.

    Certainly rated Rangi's efforts in the NRC and Scoble looked very much at home last week.
