Head to Head

Blues beat the Western Force 22-18 away last season.

Blues Form

The Blues have been reasonably good at the start of the season but they still only have two wins from their four games.

In round one the Blues thrashed the Highlanders in Dunedin before going down 25-20 in Melbourne to the Brumbies. That was followed by a good 25-19 success against the Hurricanes in round three.

Last weekend the Blues lost 34-28 at home to the Crusaders in a repeat of last season’s final. It was a cracking match and one that showed the Blues are still very much title challengers.

Blues Injuries & Team News

Adrian Choat is back for the Blues with Harry Plummer as captain.

Western Force Form

The Western Force have won two and lost two of their four games, the same as their opponents. The difference however is three points between them.

The Perth outfit beat the Rebels on the opening weekend before being thrashed 71-20 at home against the Reds. A narrow 21-18 victory against Moana followed in the third round.

In the fourth-round last weekend the Force lost 43-35 to the Highlanders away. It was a cracking contest and a match the Force will feel they should have won.

Western Force Injuries & Team News

Western Force have named their strongest available side.


Blues are backed to win this game by more than 20 points.
