    Crusaders vs Western Force 4th June Christchurch New Zealand

    Back in the olden days, (B2017). On any given day the Force could lift for a big match and take it to teams like the Crusaders and even escape with the win.

    Or, like in 2006 when the ground staff at Subiaco refused to give the lines 2 coats of paint and we was robbed.

    Anyway, that was then and this is now. We are up to the Third version of the Western Force. Force 3.0, and this team plays with a lot more consistency than what was produced in the early days of Super14.

    Not all heroes were capes. But they do wear Blue and black. It's possible I had too many Bundy Rums in the '90s. But I am willing to bet all of GIGS20's vCash (I'm broke) on a Force win on Friday afternoon.

    It's gonna be a cracker.

    I believe in the Force, The Whole Force, and nothing but the Force. So help me, Tim.

    Force by 3.

    Or the return game in 2007 which ended up 53-0 to the Crusaders?

    I think the Crusaders will comfortably but hopefully the Force will give a good account of themselves.

    And as I am always reminded by Cantabrian friends "we were lucky to get the nil"

    Small contingent of InnFORCEers will be attending the game this week in Christchurch

    You're spending my money awfully freely X, I was planning on betting the margin this week, but since you insist.

    On the one it is.

    Makes me feel like twiggy having others spending my fortune
