Force win try-fest match against Kings


The Force came out winners in a try-fest on Sunday morning when they beat the Kings 46-41, in a close contested match.

Two teams that are on the chopping block for next years Super Rugby revamp so everything to play for although they are not contenders at all early on in this years competition.

Sometimes one gets pretty good matches when these type of teams take eachother on and both teams showed they will run the ball all day.

The Force took early control with a penalty and a brilliant try scored from their own half putting it through the hands to score on the other side.

That gave them them an early 10-0 lead.

The Kings did not stand back and only defend and had enough field possesion to attack from and from a great drive they got over for their first try and points on the board.

This gave the Force a lead of 10-7 after 28 min.

The Force got a secnd try to take the score to 15-7 just before halftime.

The Kings scored two quick tries just after halftime to take the lead 19-15. This was great reward for the Kings who stayed in the game in that first half and took their opertunities.

The Force did not wait long to get their first try of the match and took the lead back with 22-19 but that was short lived as the Kings answered right back with another try and the lead 24-22.

The Force were next to strike again through a penalty and the lead of 25-24 after 59 min.

The Force then scored two quick tries again giving Jaer his third of the match but the Force hit back immediately to make the score 38-32 for the Kings.

The Force then step up a bit and through pressure in the scrum five meters from the Kings line force a penalty try to take the lead 39-38.

The Force found themselves then again with attacking lineout inside Kings twenty two and drive over for another and extend the lead to 46-38.

The Kings were able to get another penalty over but the Force was too strong to get any other points in the last few minutes of the match.

This gave the Force a well earned win at home 46-41.
