  • Western Force 18-15 Chiefs

  • What a fantastic match we've had here tonight! This shows what can happen when a side is playing with confidence and develops a strong belief their team! huge commitment for the full 80! They prevented the Chiefs from playing the way they usually do by putting in a massive defensive effort! The Force have ended the Champions streak of victories and have increased their own to 3 in a row! The Chiefs will be disappointed but only have themselves to blame as they were beaten by a side that wanted it more.

  • The Chiefs turn it over on the siren! Oh my word is there more drama! They attack down the left side and knock it on. THE FORCE HAVE WON!!! They are over the moon! What an epic match and victory!

  • One minute to go, the Force are keeping it tight and winding down the clock! You can feel the tension in the stadium!

  • The Chiefs throw absolutely everything at the Force who are up for the challenge! The Chiefs spill the ball eventually and Morahan picks up and goes! The Force win a penalty and find touch!

  • The Force attack now with a good strong run from Godwin! They kick away possession straight to Tikoirotuma who runs hard up the middle. The Chiefs eventually knock on on the Forces 10 yard line. The Force crowd is going wild and chanting for their side!

  • A break in play has just finished as Kieran Longbottom has been stretchered off due to a nasty blow to the neck! But we're back with a scrum to Force 5m out from their own try line. And the Force have won a penalty! They are ecstatic and up for this!

  • The Chiefs work their way strongly into the Forces 22m. They use their big lads to carry the ball up and come close to the try line! The Force defend for their lives and eventually get the knock on! Inspiring stuff from the home side!

  • Hayward finds a good clearance off the scrum to get his side out of trouble!

  • Great defense from the Force as they tackle hard to force a knock on from the Chiefs!

  • A bit of ping pong ensues between the teams. Unfortunately for Ebersohn, his kick rolls on way further than expected and goes out over the dead ball line and we come back to the Force 22m for a Chiefs scrum.

  • PENALTY, CHIEFS, CRUDEN, 18-15. Cruden's boot reduces the deficit to 3!

  • The Chiefs win a penalty as Hodgeson joins the ruck incorrectly! Cruden will have a shot.

  • PENALTY, FORCE, EBERSOHN, 18-12. Great strike from Sias! Can the Force do this!?

  • Force have won a penalty! It's in kicking range and Sias will line up the important kick. It's in the corner just in front of the 10. Difficult shot.

  • Kerr Barlow makes a half break before he offloads to Sam Cane! He gets the ball ripped from him by his opposite number Hodgeson! Force kick downfield for Tikiorotuma to chase down and clear!

  • The Force throw everything at them! They eventually go wide and Cottrell comes close. The Chiefs manage to turnover the ball and win a penalty in the process. Cruden kicks for safety! Tense times for the defending champions!

  • The Force have won a scrum 5m out! Great opportunity for them here, a try will give them a healthy lead and plenty of confidence with 30 minute to go.

  • The Force come close to scoring another! A kick through isn't dealt well with by the Chiefs! Cummins picks up and hurtles towards the corner! He just steps out as Tom Marshall clips Cummins ankle before he dives over in the corner!
