The Western Force and Waratahs meet at the Cbus Super Stadium in Super Rugby AU on Friday. The Waratahs will want to revive their floundering championship hopes with victory after producing a crushing display against the fancied Reds last weekend.

Western Force Form


The Western Force have lost all four of their Super Rugby AU matches thus far. They have been competitive in many of those matches, but faded in the second half which is understandable given their lack of quality.

In their opening match the Force lost 23-14 to the Waratahs in Sydney after taking an early 14-0 lead. Since then they have gone on to lose 31-24 at the Reds, 24-0 against the Brumbies and 25-20 against the Rebels.

The Force cannot play their home games in Perth at the moment due to COVID-19 which has further hampered their season and this will again be the case on Friday.

Western Force News


The Western Force come into this match with no injury concerns. They had a bye last weekend which gave the players with niggles time to recover.

Waratahs Form


The Waratahs showed signs of their squad coming together when the Tahs’ went down 24-23 against a quality Brumbies outfit a few weeks ago.

Unfortunately that was followed up with a horror performance against the Rebels where the Waratahs lost 29-10 away. 

Last weekend the Waratahs produced a performance no one saw coming as they swept the Reds aside 45-12 in a rampant performance. 

Should the Sydney-based outfit manage to maintain that form this weekend it is difficult to see anything other than victory.

Waratahs News


Lock Tom Staniforth was not 100% fit last weekend but should be back to take his place on the bench. Other than that the Waratahs have a clean bill of health.

Western Force vs Waratahs Head to Head


The Waratahs hold a 10-6 advantage over the Western Force in their last 16 matches. They last met in round two of 2020 Super Rugby AU where the Waratahs won 23-14 in Sydney.

Western Force vs Waratahs Odds


The Western Force are underdogs at 3.25 with the Waratahs available at 1.36 with bet365. A draw can be backed at 26.00.

The handicap market for this clash is set at 8 points.

Western Force vs Waratahs Match Up


The Waratahs dominated set pieces in their last match and when they last played the Western Force so that will be a major concern for the hosts. 

The possession stakes should once again favour the Waratahs with the Force relying on turnover possession to score points.
