Nick Cummins will make his return to the ‘Force Field’ (nib Stadium) when the Western Force takes on the Melbourne Rebels on Friday night (13 March) – in just the second home match of the club’s 10th season of Asteron Life Super Rugby.

The ‘Honey Badger’ made a try-scoring comeback for the Force against the Brumbies last Friday, and will run out as part of a settled Western Australian line-up against their Victorian rivals this week.

In the only change to the starting XV, Luke Burton will again start at fullback replacing Luke Morahan, who has succumbed to a hamstring strain.

On the bench, Adam Coleman is set to make a return from a hip injury that has seen him sidelined for the Force’s matches against the Hurricanes and Brumbies.

Winger Mitch Scott has also been reinstated in the Force’s match day squad, after scoring his maiden Asteron Life Super Rugby try in his last appearance at the ‘Force Field’ (nib Stadium) against the Hurricanes a fortnight ago.

Western Force Head Coach Michael Foley says his side is looking forward to returning to the ‘Force Field’ (nib Stadium).

“We’re excited to be back at home,” he said. “Friday provides us with an opportunity to play for our fans.

“Last week’s performance was a true reflection of what it means to us to play for each other and the jersey. With our attitude right, a number of areas within our game improved through the 80 minutes. We started to manipulate the defence and apply good pressure with ball in hand.

“It’s important that we take the Brumbies performance and build on it on Friday night.”

Tickets are available for the Western Force’s match against the Melbourne Rebels at the ‘Force Field’ (nib Stadium) on Friday, 13 March. Tickets are available from www.ticketmaster.com.au.
