Force fit and firing ahead of Grand Final
Tim Sampson believes Western Force is heading into the 2019 NRC Grand Final in good shape, as the team prepares to tackle Canberra Vikings in the decider at UWA Sports Park this Saturday.
The Head Coach is pleased with the low injury toll from the weekend and is confident in his leadership group’s big game experience for finals.
“We are fortunate we’ve got guys there that have finals experience; Heath Tessman captained the Perth Spirit when they lifted the trophy in NRC a few years back,” Sampson said.
“We’ve got some injured guys doing some work behind the scenes for us too, so it’s good to have them.”
