Force call on the youngsters to bring in the win
The Western Force have majorly changed up their team to take on the Asia Pacific Dragons calling the youngsters of the club to step up.
In a round showcasing emerging West Australian talent, new Force recruit from UWA Carlo Tizzano will make his debut appearance with the club starting at number seven. Joining him as a potential debutant, Michael McDonald, has been called up from the Future Force to start on the bench.
Cottesloe kicking prodigy Nick Jooste and youngster Issak Fines will make their first start for the club after impactful appearances from the bench in the last two games.
The front-row will see the return of Heath Tessmann who will prove a vital source of experience in the forwards.
After last-minute changes to the line-up last match, Brad Lacey will join Clay Uyen on the wings with Marcel Brache and Henry Taefu in the centres.
A strong forward pack will see Harrison Lloyd, Kieran Longbottom, Leon Power, Henry Stowers, Jeremy Thrush and Brynard Stander join the returning Tessmann and debutant Tizzano.
A confident bench line up will finish the game well and includes Rocket Rod Davies coming back on the field after an injury playing for the Aussie Men 7’s in Vancouver earlier this year.
