The Force return to action this week after their BYE and this week they will face the Reds.

The Perth-based franchise lured eight of the 2005 Reds squad, including skipper Nathan Sharpe, to their inaugural season squad and some are viewing it as a chance for Reds’ revenge.

Former Wallabies winger Ben Tune will make another long-awaited return from knee and hamstring injuries off the Reds’ bench in the match between the two win-less Australian sides.
