UNHERALDED FIRST five Ben Seymour – not James Stannard – could run the Western Force cutter when they take on the Hurricanes in Perth on Friday night.
Stannard could be moved to halfback in place of former Wallaby No 9 Brett Sheehan and Seymour, who made his debut last week, thrust into a playmaking role for the clash at nib Stadium.
The two combined well when paired together from the 50th-minute mark during last weekend’s 35-20 loss to the Reds in Brisbane and coach Richard Graham may be tempted to start them from the outset against the ‘Canes as he looks to get the side’s stuttering attack firing.
“He's trained well with us in pre-season and done everything that's been asked of him so I felt that (the Stannard-Seymour combination) worked reasonably well for us,” says Graham.
The Force, who are winless after two rounds, are due to name their team tomorrow.« Back to Articles
With the series level, expect both teams to put it all on the line as they seek to win the deciding test in Sydney on Saturday night.
