    He's not alone. That second half was a masterclass from JOC. The footwork with ball in 2 hands before the kick for the second last try, I think it was; brilliant!

    Round 3 - Super Rugby Pacific

    Force outplayed by travelling Reds

    Despite a strong showing from the Western Force, the Queensland Reds proved too good at HBF Park, with the reigning Super Rugby AU champions claiming a 29-16 win.

    Full-back Jake Strachan opened the scoring after six minutes with a perfectly executed penalty goal to give the Force an early 3-0 lead.

    The Reds responded swiftly, with Hamish Stewart crossing over for a try following a strong line break. James O’Connor converted to make the score 3-7 in favour of the visitors after seven minutes.

    In a see-sawing opening to the contest, the home side pushed hard to regain the lead with an abundance of territory and attacking pressure.

    The Reds stood firm and, on the counter-attack, scored their second of the night through Jock Campbell at the 25 minute mark. O’Connor was unable to convert (3-12).

    The end-to-end nature of the match continued at the half hour mark, with vice-captain Kyle Godwin pouncing on Issak Fines-Leleiwasa’s clever kick over the top of the Reds defence in acrobatic fashion. Godwin’s second try in as many games was successfully converted by Strachan (10-12).

    Strachan added another three points after 38 minutes, with a successful penalty goal to give the Force a narrow advantage (13-12).

    Just as the Force looked to finish the half on top, O’Connor slotted a penalty goal through after the siren to regain the lead for his side (13-15).

    The early stages of the second half saw the game become a rugged arm wrestle between the two sides, with Taniela Tupou seemingly scoring a try, but was judged to have not released the ball in the first phase.

    Strachan kicked true again, as the full-back added three points for the Force with a straightforward penalty goal to regain the lead with 62 minutes played (16-15).

    Josh Flook hit back for the Reds just two minutes later, with the winger touching down in the corner following O’Connor’s well-placed grubber kick. O’Connor continued an impressive performance with a conversion to give the Reds a six-point lead (16-22).

    Quick hands from the Reds led to Fraser McReight racing over for the Reds fourth try in the 70th minute, which O’Connor converted to seal the win (16-29).

    The Force refused to lie down over the 80 minutes showing great resilience throughout, but the Reds proved too clinical in front of a passionate WA crowd.

    Tim Sampson’s side will look to return to winning ways next week when they head east to take on the NSW Waratahs in Round 4 at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday, 13 March.

    Scorers:

    Western Force – Try: Kyle Godwin (30’). Conversion: Jake Strachan. Penalty Goals: Jake Strachan (3).

    Queensland Reds – Tries: Hamish Stewart (7’), Jock Campbell (25’), Josh Flook (64’), Fraser McReight (70’). Conversions: James O’Connor (3). Penalty Goal: James O’Connor.
