The Force chalked up a fourth win of the campaign away to the Reds last weekend, a second victory over the Queenslanders this season. The two other highlights came at home to the Kings and away to Jaguares and they finished Round 14 third best of the Australian sides, 11 points behind the Brumbies but just two behind the Waratahs. The Force have lost all four of their matches against New Zealand sides this season and they will want to forget the 55-6 hiding dished out by the Highlanders on this ground in Round 13. They did make the Chiefs work hard for a 17-6 win in Perth in Round 9 and earlier in the campaign they lost away to the Blues (24-15) and the Crusaders (45-17).
The Canes will have an eye on the earlier game between the Crusaders and Highlanders the outcome of which will tell us more about their chances of reeling in the Saders at the top of the NZ Conference. Coming into this round the gap was 11 points but the Canes had played one game fewer and if the Saders come unstuck earlier in the day, the door would be open to some degree especially as the Canes still have to host the Crusaders in Wellington. Two defeats this season came in local derby matches and the Canes have been foot perfect against overseas opposition.
The Hurricanes demolished the Force 41-6 and by six tries to zero when the Australian side visited Wellington last year. The Canes’ tries came from Dane Coles, James Marshall, TJ Perenara, Blade Thomson, Ngani Laumape and Ardie Savea. Five of them only came after the 50-minute mark as the Force tired.
Force full-back Marcel Brache has scored in each of his last two games for the Force and is definitely one to watch as he seems to be getting back to his best form. Solid under the high ball, with a good touch-finder and pace to burn, Brache is turning into a dangerous number 15.
Keep an eye on fit-again Beauden Barrett. He is undoubtedly the best fly-half in World Rugby at the moment. He possesses electric pace but also has the intelligence of when to use it to full effect. He is partly the reason why the Canes’ are such an effective counter-attacking side.
The Force have won four of their 12 matches this season against the Reds (twice), Kings and the Jaguares. Their losses have come against the Waratahs, Brumbies, Crusaders, Blues, Chiefs, Lions, Sharks and Highlanders.
The Hurricanes have won 10 of their 12 matches this season. They have beaten the Sunwolves, Rebels, Highlanders, Reds, Waratahs, Blues, Brumbies, Stormers, Cheetahs and Bulls while they have lost to the Chiefs and Crusaders.
The Hurricanes should make it nine out of nine against the Force. Hurricanes by 20.
