    A must win game for the Tahs who could put themselves within a win of the playoffs.

    Likewise though, the Force are coming off a bye, don't have the same issue the first time around where it was their first game and will know that sides have faltered after a big performance this season. They'll be eyeing up their first win.

    I would expect very few changes from the Tahs. Robbie Abel could come back on to the bench if he's healthy in place of Tuala.

    Can 'The Force' be with The Force ?. a win for them would be good for rugby.. Can the Tahs back up their great performance against The Reds? Playing the style they did in the first half, I say yes.. Give Ramm and Maddocks more ball early and limit kicking ball away. Hunt seems to love the grubber when often he has men outside him. Dempsey needs to continue form he showed too. May the best team win.

    Amy Perrett gets another AR stint - her seventh I think. I'm calling tokenism!

    They finally gave Graham Cooper his first crack with the whistle so hopefully they follow suit with Amy soon!

    This game, because the Force can't make the finals from here, would have been a pretty good opportunity. Alas.

    And I thought Graham Cooper did an excellent job for his first time out!

    Funny that Force away game against Tahs is in QLD..but I get it also because follow on game etc so time to base in new camp etc.

    Plus maybe chance to put match in QLD regions as QLD better rugby supporters of pro rugby then NSW.

    HJH to the bench?

    Any reason why HJH would move to the bench for the Tahs? I thought he was considered first choice.

    But otherwise, very pleasing to see the stability in selection that the Tahs have managed for a few weeks now, great for building combinations and confidence.

    I thought Angus Bell was released to Shute Shield? Has he burst the bubble?

    Beat me to the punch, Drew. According to rugby.com.au, HJH benched for workload management off the short turn-around.
