    Although the Force have made six changes to their starting team from last week, importantly, they have...

  • The Force is with who?

    What is it with the Western Force? They are a tipsters nightmare – losing at home and then picking up points where you don’t expect them to, just like on Saturday when they held the ‘Saders to a 23 all draw in Christchurch. What strikes me about the Force is that there’s...

  • Australian Super 14 Team of week 5

    1. Benn Robinson (Tahs) – Has gotten the better of his opposite numbers two weeks in a row and shown that he is the number one, no. 1 in the country. More often than not he was scrumming against two opponents, as George Smith would slide up along side the under pressure...

  • So what happened here?

    I would imagine that on Andy Friend’s burgeoning shit-list from the weekend, will be the first try that the Force scored through Cameron Shepherd in the 26th minute. The commentators put it down to pure Giteau skill, but I can’t help but ask how two Wallabies ended up marking the space between...

  • Smith vs Pocock face off: the stats

    So here they are, the stats for last weekend’s openside head to head to help you with your selection in the poll. Now, while I’m a George Smith fan (see my post on him being best 7 in the world), the stats below look seem to reinforce the opinion that Pocock did...
