The Reds and Force end in a draw. They smashed each other up and down the field and despite having the better of the second half the Reds much like against the Brumbies, couldn't catch and pass their opposition. Great defence by the Force and showed far more starch than against the Brumbies holding the Reds out for 70-odd minutes.
The Badger also came back and did pretty well. He made a great run down the flank and drove Shipperley back about 10 minutes and made Cooper's attempt at a tackle look silly to set up the Force's only try. Being a lot of talk about other wingers but he is the incumbent and adds more spice into selection pot for the back three come the Lions.
