Despite the Force enjoying a bye last week and having home-ground advantage, one cannot see them coming away with anything against a potient Chiefs unit.
The gulf in class between the Australian sides and the New Zealand sides has been too apparent this season. And the statistics back this up. An Aussie side has yet to inflict defeat on a Kiwi team.
The Force have never beaten the Chiefs away, but they have beaten them twice out of five matches at home, which should serve to give the men from Perth some encouragement. The Force won 18-15 in 2014 and 22-21 in 2008 against the Chiefs in Perth.
Ben McCalman, Matt Phillips, Richie Arnold, Michael Ruru and Chance Peni are all out with injury for the Force. McCalman, the captain, will be a significant miss with the Australian side facing not just an injury problem, but one of leadership.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, are relatively unscathed and can boast an almost injury-free squad. Shaun Stevenson makes a return to the starting line-up and will look to serve up some more of the magic we witnessed against the Bulls, where he left Jamba Ulengo standing.
And Stevenson is the least of the Force’s worries. They’ll have to contend with star All Blacks Aaron Cruden, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Michael Leitch, Sam Cane, Liam Messam and Brodie Retallick as they try to prove they are capable of beating the big teams and not just the small ones.
Their only victories in this year’s competition have come against minnows the Kings and the seriously under-achieving Reds.
