The Western Force host the Rebels at Leichhardt Oval in Super Rugby AU on Friday. The visitors will be full of confidence after an impressive performance last week while the Force are still without a win in the competition.

Western Force Form


The Western Force have lost their opening three Super Rugby AU matches. That was largely expected given their squad that has little Super Rugby experience.

They impressed against the Waratahs on the opening weekend as they went down 23-14 in Sydney before losing 31-24 to the Reds.

The Force came crashing down to earth as a dominant Brumbies side beat them 24-0 in Sydney last weekend. The Force have yet to play a match at their home ground in Perth due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Western Force News


It is likely that the Force will freshen things up with week with Richard Kahui and Kyle Godwin to feature in the back-line. Tom Sheminant and Ollie Atkins could come into the front-row.

Rebels Form


The Rebels found some form last weekend when they defeated the Waratahs 29-10 at the Sydney Cricket Ground. It was a dominant performance by the Rebels in which the forwards laid the foundation for the back-line to thrive.

Prior to last weekend the Rebels lost 31-23 at the Brumbies on the opening weekend before drawing away 18-18 to the Reds. The Rebels will certainly see this as opportunity to gain five points against a Force side who’ve punched above their weight.

Much like the Western Force, the Rebels are playing their fourth consecutive away match due to restrictions in the Melbourne area.

Rebels News


The Rebels have no new injury concerns. Young lock duo Trevor Hosea and Jordan Uelese are certain to keep their places after producing impressive displays against the Waratahs.

Western Force vs Rebels Head to Head
