When the Brumbies played the Force earlier this season in Canberra the Brumbies held on for a two point victory over the men from Perth.
The result before that ended in a draw and in the match prior to the draw the Force beat the Brumbies in Canberra so the last three matches between these two have evened each other out.
The Force have played the Brumbies 8 times and the Force have beaten the Brumbies three times and lost four times with one draw.
On average when the Force play the Brumbies they both score 19 points but when they play in Perth the Force score 17 and the Brumbies score 21 points.
The Force and the Brumbies have played each other 4 times in Perth and the Force have only beaten the Brumbies once and drawn once. That means the Brumbies have won twice or 50% of their matches and drawn 25% of their matches.
Two Force players will be playing their final Super Rugby matches on Australian soil in this match so emotions will be high. The two players - Force's inaugural captain Nathan Sharpe and winger Napolioni Nalaga will still play further matches this season but not in Australia.
The Bookies have given the Force a 5 point start for this match - with an offer of Bet 5 and Get 50 in Bets. We think the Brumbies should be too strong for the Force who have lost a lot of steam since the two teams last played. The Brumbies should win by 5 as the bookies predict.
This match will be shown on TV in NZ, Aus, SA and in the UK on Sky Sports 2/HD .
