    This pretty much sums up the old adage about a team of champions v a champion team.
    Great effort boys.


    Ladder-leading Western Force smash Canberra in National Rugby Championship

    Big names fall heavily as a star-studded Canberra Vikings discovered, dumped 45-28 by Western Force in the National Rugby Championship clash at UWA Sports Park.
    The ladder-leading Force faced their toughest test of the season against a Vikings side top heavy with five Wallabies and another 11 Super Rugby players.
    But they were not impressed by names on paper and some of the Vikings big ones went missing, overshadowed by their Force counterparts.

    Can't wait to hear the RA propaganda machine squawking about how unfair it is that the force have so many professional players and how unfair their life is

    I smell a home semi and maybe a home final for the Force

    Alcock's leg got trapped under a pile of bodies in the first half - maybe 12-15 minutes in.

    I don't know anything specific about the injury though. Could have been a knee injury?

    Surprisingly the RA report includes this:
    But they were no match for the Force, who not only played the smarter game but are showing the benefits of their cohesion through a season of Global Rapid Rugby.

    But,but.... have'nt those 5 wallabies and 11 Super players had the benefit of their cohesion through a season for the Brumbies in Super Rugby which is supposed to be a higher standard than GRR?

    I watched the 2nd half on TV and the simple difference was the Force guys wanted it more than the Vikings or Brumbies. The Force yelling and shouting of encouragement was very noticeable. Canberra were walking in the last 10 minutes, when the Force were going flat out still.
    It was a team of stars, up against a star team.
    Hats of to the Force and their coaches, the did us proud.
