Force change two
4 May 2012
The Western Force will start flank Richard Brown and wing Sam Wara against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
Brown is promoted from the bench to the loose trio as Ben McCalman failed to make the trip to South Africa because of an arm injury.
Wara is preferred ahead of Rory Sidey at wing. The former has been struggling with a hamstring niggle in recent weeks, but is now fit enough to start.
Force – 15 Alfie Mafi, 14 Sam Wara, 13 Nick Cummins, 12 Winston Stanley, 11 Napolioni Nalaga, 10 10 David Harvey, 9 Brett Sheehan, 8 Matt Hodgson, 7 David Pocock (c), 6 Richard Brown, 5 Nathan Sharpe, 4 Toby Lynn, 3 Salesi Ma’afu, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Pek Cowan.
Subs: 16 Elvis Taione, 17 Salesi Manu, 18 Phoenix Battye, 19 Lachlan McCaffrey, 20 Josh Holmes, 21 Ben Seymour, 22 Rory Sidey.
