    I watched a bits on TV as well and the crowd looked bog average. Granted the start time was early because the RWC Qtr Finals were on today but a midday kick off is a bit early.

    This.

    Bottom half of the hill was fully bathed in Max UV and overdosing with Vitamin D.

    Only mad dogs go there by choice.

    A game of cricket was on in the background - and I reckon the rugby players would've needed suncreen too.

    Talking about the hot weather, looks like we in for another scorcher next Saturday again. It is predicted to be 33 degrees and the game is at 12:00 again.

    I was on the other side; near the broadcast commentators. Crowd looked ok. Could definitely hear the chant in the 2nd half.
    I was in Canberra 2 Fridays ago (Vikings v NSW Country) and the crowd was probably about the same - 20 degrees difference in temp.

    Jooste obviously threw everything into his game by the way he was chundering on the field deep into the 2nd half

    Was good to see Brynard take the field. We’ve missed him while he’s been out injured. Hopefully he’ll be in the run-on XV next weekend.

    Absolutely

    Not looking good for the Vikings, tho, so far.

    Looks warm in Canberra too, drinks breaks (unofficial) every 7-8 minutes and the Fijians wasting the clock at every opportunity (then hit and raid with the ball).

    I’m sure the refs under instructions to ensure the ‘right’ result.

    Force secures home Grand Final


    The Western Force fought deep into added time to hold off a fast finishing Brisbane City and secure a historic home NRC Grand Final by four points.

    The Force scored four tries in the first twenty minutes of the second half to seemingly break the game open with a 25-point lead. However Brisbane nailed three tries in the last ten minutes to take the game down to the wire, with the Force eventually home 42-38.

    Try scoring doubles to Pama Fou and RetraVision Man of the Match scrumhalf Issak Fines saw the Force overcome a slow start to set up the victory.

    With both teams’ level at the break at 14-14, Fines sparked the second half surge with a cheeky dart from the base of the ruck to dot down for his first. A scintillating break from a lineout saw him accelerate past Brisbane fullback Bryce Hegarty for his second of the game.

    The Brisbane fightback was countered by the Force backrow of Carlo Tizzano, Fergus Lee-Warner and Henry Stowers, who led the defensive line throughout the game.

    In the pre-match build up, both team captains predicted defence would be crucial to winning the fixture and the first half was emblematic of their views.

    Having taken the lead early through a Jonah Placid intercept try, the Force conceded two tries to Brisbane City. The Queenslanders with the bulk of possession, scored through Number 8 Seru Uru and captain Brandon Paenga-Amosa.

    Paenga-Amosa’s effort came with Force lock Jeremy Thrush in the sin bin after conceding a penalty in his own 22m.
    Trailing by seven, with half time approaching, the Force set its attack deep in the heart of Brisbane territory. Beautiful handling saw captain
    Andrew Deegan carry two defenders over the try line to drag his side level at the break.

    A refreshed Force re-established their game plan to start their second half with hard and direct running from the entire team setting up the four try salvo.

    When Hegarty slotted the last of Brisbane’s points there were ten seconds left, the Force was made to defend for four more minutes before Andrew Ready squeezed a penalty to book a maiden home final for the Western Force, next Saturday at UWA Sports Park at 12pm.

    RetraVision Man of the Match: Issak Fines
    Western Force 42 – 38 Brisbane City
    (Half time: Western Force 14 - 14 Brisbane City)

    Western Force: 42
    Tries: Placid, Deegan, Fines 2, Fou 2
    Cons: Deegan 6

    Brisbane City: 38
    Tries: Uru, Paenga-Amosa, Ngauamo 2, Henry
    Cons: Hegarty 5
    Penalty Goal: Hegarty

    Still the Drua are cynically taking injury breathers to slow the game down.

    Working for them
