The Western Force have confirmed the team lists for Round 4 of the Super Rugby Men’s U19 and U16 Championships against the ACT Brumbies at Revo Fitness Stadium in Claremont on Saturday.

Both games in the penultimate round of fixtures will be crucial for the Force U19s and U16s’ hopes of making the Finals – with the top two sides qualifying - to be played on Sunday 5 November. Both Force teams have 1-1 records, having had the bye last weekend in Round 3.

The Force U16s will take on the Brumbies U16s from 12:05pm WST, followed by the Force-Brumbies U19s game from 1:45pm WST.

I went along to the last fixture and recommend it as an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday.

Interestingly, in the U19's, they have moved the impressive Queensland recruit, Finn Prass, from his Aus Schools and last weeks #15 to #10.
