Moana Pasifika and the Western Force meet for a rescheduled catch up game in the final week of the Super Rugby Pacific regular season. Join The Roar for live scores from 5:05pm AEST.
These two were originally supposed to play back in Round 10 for the Super Round in Melbourne but the Force was ravaged by a COVID outbreak and had to pull out of the match at the last minute.
If the Force has any hope of making the Super Rugby finals they must win this one and win it well. A bonus point is required for the mathematical chance of making finals.
But Moana Pasifika have shown they compete with the best for periods of time in this tournament and pushed the Queensland Reds all the way at the weekend.
They’ll be eyeing off this one as an opportunity to end the season on a high.
Jack Lam will captain the side tonight and a new second-row pairing of Veikoso Poloniati and Mahonri Ngakuru.
Venue: Mt Smart Satdium
