The Force and the Rebels will meet for the first time on a Sunday and this will also be the last Sunday Super Rugby match for 2012.
The Rebels and the Force have played each other three teams so far in Super Rugby as the Rebels only joined the tournament in February last year.
The teams have already played each other this year and in that match the Rebels won 29-30 in Melbourne.
In the three matches played so far the Force have won once and the Rebels two. The average score when the teams play is Force 27 and Rebels 27.
The Force have therefore won 33% of their overall matches against the Rebels.
The two Super Rugby teams have only played each other once in Perth and that match was won 25-26 by the Rebels so the Force are still looking for their first victory over the Rebels in Perth.
Last week the Rebels beat the Crusaders 28-19 but the week before that in Round 11 they scored 35 points and their first four try bonus point against the Bulls.
While the Rebels still lost to the Bulls their general performance was good.
In contrast the Force who are still looking for a new coach have lost their last five matches.
The Bookies have given the Rebels a 1 point start for this match - with an offer of Bet 5 and Get 50 in Bets. The Rebels have turned a corner and having won in Perth before we are going against the bookies. The Rebels should win by 5.
This match will be shown on TV in NZ, Aus, SA and in the UK the Sky Sports HD4 Channel.
