Western Force coach Michael Foley says his side is looking forward to returning to Perth on Saturday – with good reason. They have lost at home only once this season – with the Chiefs, Waratahs and Bulls counting among the scalps taken.

Lions has opted to go with a handful of changes and give their youngsters a change at Super Rugby. Hard to call this one
