    That's unfortunate and hope he's not out for too long. Relatively easily covered by our good depth at centre though thankfully, with Kahui and Taefu both good options, and as Tazz above suggests, we could put two of our flyhalf options in at 10 and 12 - Lance, Miotti, McIntyre, McGregor. Would likely improve our attack but weaken the defense a bit.

    Good for the Force, but also interesting to ponder whether a SRau would have been feasible had things gone to plan and they'd only had four teams...

    Taefu easily the best back up option. A specialist 12 who would combine well with Tevita.

    1316 days on and the Tahs are still rubbish. Time to head to the members bar I Reckon.

    Don’t think I’ll make it tonight! Will have to watch tomorrow morning. 3 am start today and probably too many beers by the time the Reds finish riming the ‘turds!

    Was it just me, or was that a horribly one sided refereeing performance? We certainly didn't shower ourselves in glory in defence, but didn't get the chance to get any momentum while being whistled off the park for who knows what while the brumbies seemed to largely get away with whatever they liked.

    Normal service has resumed I guess, and perhaps it's just me being a one eyed force supporter...

    Well as the rebels found out you can’t buy a team!
    Out played. Hopefully they will look at that as a warm up match and have a better idea of what to do next week.

    I was bemused by a few calls but put that down to passion and you don't see everything on the night.

    The one that really got me, Brumbies kick it dead from inside the 22 and it's a line dropout we kick it dead from the other side of halfway it's a scrum, I didn't realise there was a difference? Both were one of those kicks that was almost brilliant.

    I though McIntyre looked sharp, and their 5 was a dirty cheating bastard all night.

    Disappointed but not totally surprised, concerned about the Reds game last week, but if we don't beat the tahs then we have a culture problem.

    How good was live rugby with a crowd back in Perth, finally felt like some sort of normality had returned.

    Sadly not being able to mix properly with the players and chat at the end was a stark reminder that we still have some way to go with this bloody virus.

    Onto the game:

    1) Any live rugby is better than no rugby so thank you to Nicola and Andrew Forrest for making it possible and keeping the Force going

    2) The Brumbies are good, very good they played well within themselves and probably had another gear if they needed one.

    3) The Force, our Force , our Team just being on the field with a crowd cheering them after being so badly treated and slaughter by their own governing body three years back was the biggest winner on the night and in an Australian sporting context probably be the biggest winnerof the year.

    4) with all that’s happened and proceeded to where we are now it would have been a fairy tale to have won, however realistically winning was really against the odds and we need to look at the result in this context.

    5) I am going to list the positives as there are many of them and this is not a time for negativity as we are just restarting a stalled journey:

    We had a team in blue playing in Perth
    We had A Perth team
    Kids and adults alike had a team to cheer on

    The team was coming off just one trial match
    Cubelli and Kearney showed some really great touches and with more match time we will see more of it
    We were competitive and remained in the game a lot longer than last year
    McIntyre looked decent taking the ball to the line
    Ralston tackling was a step up from last year and while he did not have many attacking opportunities keep an eye on this kid this year
    Front row looks to have set a more stable platform than we had last year
    The line outs showed a marked improvement
    Lots for Tim to work on and onwards and upwards from here

    In the most excellent tradition started by Tazz.

    Here is my Positive review of last night's match between the Harvey Beef Western Force and the Brumbies.

    • Version 3.0 of the ManCave is almost finished.
    • I might have shed a tear when the Force boys ran out onto HBF Field. The ManCave is pretty dusty.
    • Force forwards worked hard to allow Ian Prior good quick ball.
    • Robertson and Medrano run up the middle of the field were a joy to watch.
    • Rob Kearny had a solid first hit out.
    • Cubelli looked great.
    • Kahui looked good.
    • Our Flankers: Koteka, Lexana, and Stander worked their bums off all game.
    • Tim Anstee was an absolute revelation, what a work-horse in both attack and defense.
    • Great crowd.
    • Stan's commentary team for both games was good. Analysis from Campese and Cheika was on point and relevant and provided value to the telecast.


    I am very much looking forward to this season of Super Rugby.

    As next week is a bye, hopefully lots of cardio work and ball-handling drills.

    Also, passing drills where you hit a man running rather than standing still.
