• Brache starts for Force

    Marcel Brache will earn his first Super Rugby start for the Western Force at outside centre against the Waratahs.

    Brache, who has come off the bench in two matches for the Force this season, replaces the injured Solomoni Rasolea who fractured his wrist during the Force’s 32-29 win over the Reds last weekend.

    Brache’s inclusion is the only change to the Force starting line-up, while Chris Tuatara-Morrison is in line to make his Super Rugby debut after being named on the bench.

    The Force have won their last four games and will be hoping to add the Waratahs' scalp on Saturday in Perth.

    Force – 15 Jayden Hayward, 14 Luke Morahan, 13 Marcel Brache, 12 Kyle Godwin, 11 Nick Cummins, 10 Sias Ebersohn 9 Alby Mathewson, 8 Ben McCalman, 7 Matt Hodgson (c), 6 Angus Cottrell, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Sam Wykes, 3 Kieran Longbottom, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Pek Cowan
    Subs: 16 Heath Tessmann, 17 Tetera Faulkner, 18 Oli Hoskins, 19 Adam Coleman, 20 Brynard Stander, 21 Ian Prior, 22 Zack Holmes, 23 Chris Tuatara-Morrison.
