<div align="center"> V</div> This game should be getting underway right about now, I'm working so will be watching it later tonight. (stupid Kiwi scheduling of games) The Hurricanes are looking towards the Semi's after a pretty rubbish start and the Force are standing in thier way and are fielding probably one of the youngest backlines in the Super 14 this week, at an age of 22.18. O'Connor had a solid debut against the Chiefs and returns to the line up with Scott Staniforth out for the rest of the season. The Chiefs injured half our team in the game last weekend so the Force are a mishmash of talent with Dane Haylett-Petty, an 18 year old from Hale School in Perth, and Josh Tatupu, a former leaguie getting thier first starts. Ryan Cross is out because of a broken jaw, Pek Cowan has a dislocated thumb which protruded through the skin, Scott Fava is out, I forget why and finally Nick Cummins is out with a broken leg. It is very much a David v Goliath fight and will show alot of the young talent that the Force have and for the Hurricanes will show perhaps a few All Blacks running riot. Also Tim Fairbrother is apparently eligible to come play in Australia so expect this to be one of his last times not playing in the Force deep blue! Hurricanes in a close but exciting game.
