Western Force Gold has thumped Japanese club Yamaha Jubilo in a 10-to-1 try blitz at Rosalie Park in Perth.


The locals scored five tries in each half, finishing 66-7 victors over a physical but blunt foe, which will be looking to find a way through the Force Gold defensive line before the two teams meet again next Saturday.


The only setback for Force Gold was a suspected broken hand to flyhalf James Hilgendorf.


Otherwise, the backs ‘ led by an impressive Junior Pelesasa – showed plenty of pace and penetration, and were ably supported by a keen and mobile pack.
