Force get injury boost

Dane Haylett-Petty and Sam Wykes have been named in the Force match 23 to face the Highlanders in Perth on Saturday. 

Haylett-Petty returns to the starting lineup at fullback, after he missed their victory over the Waratahs a fortnight ago due to a groin injury.

In a new-look midfield, Marcel Brache shifts from the wing to outside centre to parter Kyle Godwin in the absence of Junior Rasolea, who is nursing an ankle injury.

And among the reserves, Wykes is set to return to action off the bench after a four-week injury lay-off.

Force – 15 Dane Haylett-Petty, 14 Luke Morahan, 13 Marcel Brache, 12 Kyle Godwin, 11 Nick Cummins, 10 Sias Ebersohn, 9 Ryan Louwrens, 8 Ben McCalman, 7 Matt Hodgson (c), 6 Angus Cottrell, 5 Adam Coleman, 4 Steve Mafi, 3 Tetera Faulkner, 2 Nathan Charles, 1 Pekahou Cowan.
Subs: 16 Heath Tessmann, 17 Chris Heiberg, 18 Guy Millar, 19 Sam Wykes, 20 Kane Koteka, 21 Alby Mathewson, 22 Luke Burton, 23 Brad Lacey.
