Big match this one for both teams. The Force are sitting at number seven on the ladder, they have a pretty small chance of sneaking into the last four. It would require them to secure a bonus-point win over the Blues in Perth on Friday and then for the Blues, Chiefs (who face the Crusaders) or the Bulls (who face the bottom-placed Reds) not to get a single point from the final round. It would also require the Force to beat the Blues by at least 42 points, to get ahead of them on points difference. The Blues need a win to confirm their play-of place, while a bonus-point win could see them finish first. Game wise if the Froce have done their maths then they are really going to have to through the ball around and secure a lot of points, a lot. With McAlister returning for the Blues I canâ€™t see this happening. For mine itâ€™s his not being at 12 which has caused the problems for the Blues. This could be the last game for Ioane before returning to the Reds next year and will want to continue his form of last week.
