    Bit late now but I was on The West and saw these. I wasn't sure whether they had been put up earlier.

    Grunt work helps Western Force get home

    There are two breeds in the game of rugby: the piano pushers and the piano players.
    The new Global Rapid Rugby laws bring a frenetic pace for the players but there is still plenty of room for the pushers.
    And it was the grunt of the piano pushers that set the foundation for Western Force's 26-16 victory over the World XV in their opening clash of the GRR showcase series at HBF Park on Friday night.

    Western Force too good for Honey Badger, World XV

    Western Force opened the Global Rapid Rugby showcase series with a scrappy 26-16 win over the invitation World XV at HBF Park last night.
    They struggled to blast open the experienced invitation side and it was not until the second-half that they finally put the visitors out of reach in front of 11,368 fans.
    In a typical first game performance littered with errors, fumbles and too many penalties the Force scored four tries to the WXVs two but the visitors went over for a nine-point power try.
    The visitors were able to find holes in the Force defensive line in the first period but they bounced back from a four point half-time deficit as both sides tried to exploit the new laws designed to speed up the game.
    Sometimes though, there is no substitute for rolling up the sleeves and using one-off runners from the ruck to set the foundation for attack.
    And that is just what the Force did for three of their tries.
