    That's a good looking Force team. The tight five has heaps of experience, Lance has looked good at 10, and Godwin has been back to his old self since he returned

    What happened to Lonergan?? for the brumbies at 9. I thought he was quite good for the side last week.
    Unfortunately with the Force I fear the same old shoveling sideways is not gonna cut it. Would rather see frisby a in half to create a bit more diversity when things go stagnant!
    Brumbies by a good amount.
    Still love my Force though!

    Ralston dropped or injured?

    the press release says simply:

    The versatile Brache, who featured as a centre in the previous clash with the Brumbies and last started on the left-wing against the Rebels at the end of July, makes his return on the right-wing in place of Byron Ralston.

    Is he better than Powell or White?

    My opinion I reckon may be better than Powell!

    He took a pretty heavy head knock. I think he passed a HIA though.
    So maybe just rested.

    The rested Brumbies players are all back in some way, except for Kuridrani, what's up with him? Injured or dropped?

    I had expected more of the rested players to be in the starting 15, but apparently those who put the Tahs to the sword last week have been rewarded this week. No idea what the go is with TK. I imagine he will be back in for the final, if they make it, injuries aside.

    I wish Amy Perrett all the best for her first SR game as Referee.

    Nice. Well deserved - she’s certainly put the time in.

    I hope Amy lets the game flow. It seems to me that she has a tendency to be a bit pedantic when she's on the touch line, often encroaching on the field at lineout time to insist on the defensive hooker moving back marginally as the ball is about to be thrown. None of the male refs have shown much form this year so she has a great opportunity to become a fixture in the middle if she handles this game in good spirit.

    All the ARs do that.

    It's about bloody time Amy Perrett got a go.

    Yes. And best of luck to her.

    This really should be in the news everywhere.

    I'm keen to see Reesjan Pasitoa get some decent minutes to see how he's travelling. Loved what I've seen of him to date.

    Agree that Lance has looked rather good in patches. If he had the cohesion around him you get the sense that he'd be able to create some real opportunities. Is there any word on if he's still around next year?

    My memory might be playing tricks on me but I have this nagging belief that the Brumbies don't play well on Friday nights. If that is so, then a one point victory will do me.
