The Western Force play their first match of Super Rugby AU at home as they host the Brumbies at HBF Park on Saturday. The Force have surprised a few people in their opening two matches and are tipped to get within touching distance of the Brumbies.

Western Force Form


The Western Force have proven many people wrong after making a return to Super Rugby. A three year absence meant they lost some of their best players but thus far have performed well.

In their first match the Force lost 23-14 to the Waratahs after leading 14-0 before losing 31-24 to the Reds last weekend in Queensland. This will be their first home match.

What was concern the Force coaching staff is that in both matches their side flew out of the blocks and led 14-0 before falling away as the match progressed. Should they manage another fast start one would hope they have learned from the opening two weekends.

Western Force News


Ian Prior and Jono Lance are expected to continue as a half-back pairing after two superb displays. Veteran Greg Holmes is however expected to start at hooker ahead of Feleti Kaitu’u.

Brumbies Form


The Brumbies were fantastic in Super Rugby 2020 but seem to be struggling to get going in Super Rugby AU. They have won their opening two matches but not without struggle.

On the opening weekend the Brumbies almost blew a massive lead against the Rebels but walked away with a 31-23 win at home. A bye weekend followed for the Canberra-based outfit before they needed a last minute try to beat the Waratahs 24-23 in Sydney last weekend.

Brumbies News


The Brumbies are expected to remain largely unchanged. They have no serious injuries and having had a bye the week before last should still be fresh.

Western Force vs Brumbies Head to Head


The Brumbies have a 4-0 advantage over the Western Force in their last four matches. The last match ended 25-17 in favour of the Brumbies in Canberra in 2017.

Western Force vs Brumbies Match Up


The Brumbies have the best forward pack in the competition but the Western Force have shown in their opening two matches that they can hold their own. It is their second half performances that will be of concern as they tend to run out of steam.
