Emirates Western Force scrumhalf Chris O’Young has been forced out of today’s Investec Super 14 clash with the Highlanders with a shoulder injury.


O’Young withdrew this morning after succumbing to a shoulder strain suffered during last week’s victory over the Blues in Auckland.

James Stannard will replace O’Young at scrumhalf while Matt Hodgson has been added to the bench, giving the side a five-two split of forwards and backs in the reserves.

The revised Emirates Western Force lineup for this afternoon’s clash with the Highlanders (10.30am WA kick off) is below:
