  1. if there is any game to get ya act together than its this one against the rookies..come on chiefs

    both coming off losses and chiefs are on there way home so they should atleast take one victory from 3 aways to build confidence for there home games...coz if not then this could be the same old waikato club rugby story

    "alot of potential....but no show"

    force on the other hand get there second home game and did average against the star studded wellington team

    hmmm...im picking the chiefs as a fan but this could go either way

    Nah, Force to win for sure - a close game, but Force all the way!
     
  6. I back the Force aswell the Chiefs are plying like idiots, and even though they cracked the Canes defence once they look more than capable of taking the Chiefs apart.

    Just quoting this for some reason.

    Before the Super 14 I would've have put this one down as a win for the Chiefs. But after what I've heard about their previous two games I don't know. Luckily I'll actually be able to watch this one, and I think this fact will boost the Chiefs enough to win. ;)

    I know, I saw his post. But I wouldn't be that worried if the Blues lost to the Reds.

    Whereas if the Chiefs win I want to be able to say, "I'm sorry what were you saying?"

    The only problem for the Force will be can their new 2nd 5 spark the backline. It would help if they didn't knock the ball on every 2nd tackle.
     
  14. The Force will win easily. I am 100% sure the Chiefs will finish last this season. Won't be going to Subiaco though..

    Ill be watching the game with the best view. At home, with a quality Southern African beer in one hand, and biltong in the other.

    Digby Ioane Given Until Game Day to Prove Fitness for Chiefs Clash

    Dashing winger Digby Ioane is in doubt for Friday night's game

    Exciting Emirates Western Force winger Digby Ioane will be given until game day to prove his fitness for the clash against the Chiefs at Subiaco Oval on Friday night.

    The powerful runner injured his ankle early in the first half of last week's match against the Hurricanes but played out the game.

    With uncertainty as to his availability, Australian Under 19 and Under 21 representative, Tajhon Mailata, has been called into the squad.

    Also returning to the 22 is centre Josh Graham, who passed a concussion test yesterday after being knocked-out in the team's Tooheys New Super 14 debut against the Brumbies.

    Graham will also see a specialist before being given the all-clear.

    Former Queensland flanker Richard Brown comes into the starting 15 ahead of Matt Hodgson as part of a rotation policy, and Scott Daruda returns to the run-on side at inside centre, replacing the injured Junior Pelesasa.

    The Emirates Western Force has been plagued by injury, with four backs and a forward unavailable for selection after just two rounds.

    Lock Rudi Vedelago is recovering from wrist surgery and is expected to be out of action for another six weeks, while Zander Peden and Ben Ward are battling back injuries.

    Lachlan MacKay (knee ligaments) and Pelesasa (broken ankle) were sidelined whilst wearing the Number 12

    Emirates Western Force head coach John Mitchell said it was unusual for injuries to hit one position, and he welcomed the return of Graham.

    "He's actually come in ahead of schedule having passed the appropriate medical test but it's been a challenge for us, not being able to put out the same back-line on consecutive weekends," he said.

    Mitchell said this week's opposition was the best Chiefs team he'd seen on paper in a decade, describing Mils Muliaina as the best fullback in world rugby, ably supported by Sosene Anesi and Sitiveni Sivivatu.

    "Their back-row is also formidable, all of them All Blacks," he said.

    "And their halfback Byron Kelleher is a strong individual. There wouldn't be too many halfbacks as strong as Byron, so we're in for a pretty physical contest."

    "I'm seeking an improvement on our two previous outings."

    Don't think so, Chiefs have got back Jono (who has been sorely missed for his onfield leadership skills), I'm not offering my sig or anything but the Chiefs are going to pump the Force... i hope... ok i wish... ok I really really hope that they can get their **** together... how can you have 7/8 former and current All Blacks and lose to the Force... i can't happen, it won't happen... it might happen... oh ****.

    It's time for the Chiefs to get the act together...
     
  21. Yes I do live in Perth and I follow The Force, but they are not my main team.


    Natal are the team I support passionately!!!

    EK BLY 'N HAAI!!!
