S15 Game 72 – Force (30) vs Crusaders (42) F/T

The early afternoon match sees Force hosts the Crusaders in Perth. One would have to expect the Crusaders to hit back with immense accuracy and make up the points they lost last weekend when they succumbed to the Highlanders.

The Force have a near full strength team after the return of David Pocock to the side of the scrum. James O’Connor, the topic of a lot of media speculation in recent weeks, fills in at inside centre with Willie Ripia inside him.

The Crusaders have Richie McCaw back in jersey eight with Kieran Read taking a break, and also have Sonny Bill Wiliams back in the centre’s teaming up with Robbie Fruean.

I suspect the Force will feel the backlash from the Highlanders defeat and the Crusaders should have this match won by half time.

Force: 15. Cameron Shepherd, 14. Nick Cummins, 13. Pat Dellit, 12. James O`Connor, 11. David Smith, 10. Willie Ripia, 9. Brett Sheehan, 8. Ben McCalman, 7. David Pocock, 6. Richard Brown, 5. Nathan Sharpe (Captain), 4. Sam Wykes, 3. Matt Dunning, 2. Nathan Charles, 1. Pekahou Cowan

Replacements: 16. Ben Whittaker, 17. Kieran Longbottom, 18. Matthew Hodgson, 19. Tevita Metuisela, 20. James Stannard, 21. Rory Sidey, 22. Alifeleti (Alfi) Mafi

Crusaders: 15. Israel Dagg, 14. Sean Maitland, 13. Robert Fruean, 12. Sonny Bill Williams, 11. Zac Guildford, 10. Matthew Berquist, 9. Kahn Fotuali`i, 8. Richie McCaw, 7. Matt Todd, 6. George Whitelock, 5. Chris Jack, 4. Luke Romano, 3. Ben Franks, 2. Corey Flynn, 1. Wyatt Crockett

Replacements: 16. Quentin MacDonald, 17. Owen Franks, 18. Joe Wheeler / Reuben Thorne, 19. Jonathan Poff, 20. Willi Heinz, 21. Tom Marshall, 22. Adam Whitelock
