Western Force Defence and Skills coach Phil Blake says there are no excuses for their performance in their 53-11 loss to the Sharks in Durban.
Former Rugby league Star Phil Blake says that the team were bitterly disappointed with the efforts.
"It was a performance that no one will be proud of and one that you don't take too many positives from," said Blake.
"Again our discipline was a major issue and you just can't be giving away so many penalties in a game if you want to be competitive so that's one of the things we need to address moving forward.
"With a performance like that we won't sugar coat it, it is what it is and tonight every aspect of our game was exposed so we need to go back, assess and come up with some solutions which is vitally important in moving forward."
The Western Force return to Perth on Monday and will regroup and begin preparations for their upcoming home games starting with the Rebels next week.
"We've got three home games coming up with two of them before the break in the season so we'll need to collectively make sure we maximise those three home games and maximise our season," Blake said.
"We need to get something out of this season; we can't just let it dwindle so we need to come up with solutions as a group that are going to put us in a position to win games so we can finish strong."
Although the Force were out of the match by half time they fought until the very end and were rewarded when Sam Wara sprinted down the sideline to claim a consolation try
