    * denotes has played for the Wallabies.

    Looks like a good team although im surprised to see the Brumbies third string hooker McCormack get a spot over Polota-Nau.

    Great to see Richard Brown has been given the #7 jersey after such a frustrating year with injuries, he was great in the games he did play this year and will be a key player for the Force next season.

    First time we get to see the new Force back 3 in action so i hope Fox Sports pull there finger out and show this bloody match.



    Not sure what the Fiji team is but i know that winger Sekove Leawere, hooker Joeli Lotawa, halfback Emosi Vucago, centre Maleli Kunavore and flanker Semisi Naevo have been dropped for this match after they went on a bender in Japan and missed training,got into a brawl and trashed a hotel room in Osaka. :lol:

    F#CK they're a bunch of muppets! Why can't they get a dedicated rugby channel??? We've got an AFL FFS.

    How hard could it be to get the rights to an Australia 'A' game? About as hard as trying to quantify why your friends like or support you, that's how hard.

    Well Australia 'A' smashed Fiji again in there second match on friday night 80-9 scoring 12 tries to zip.

    The Western Force back three scored another 6 tries, this time it was Drew Mitchell with a hat-trick off the bench, M.O.T.M Cameron Shepherd scored 2 and Ioane set up a few and scored 1 himself.

    i went to the game on saturday night, it was unformtunately pretty embarrasing for the fijians. i wanted them to score at least 1 try. it's not that exciting when it's a one way street but good experience for the A's
