The third date of the Australian Super Rugby began with an entertaining duel between Reds and Force. On Saturday, Waratahs-Brumbies close the day at 6.15 (Argentine time) live on ESPN Play.
REDS 31-24 FORCE (Friday)
The visiting team started in an overwhelming way, just as a week before they managed to make differences in the scoreboard: this time they went 14-0 up thanks to the tries of Jack McGregor and Byron Ralston, but the local reacted quickly and in just eight minutes He scored three tries: Brandon Paenga-Amosa (19 ‘), Jock Campbell (23’) and Taniela Tupou (27 ‘). When it looked like the fourth was coming for the Reds, wing Byron Ralston brilliantly intercepted an O’Connor pass and ran virtually the entire court to get closer to the scoreboard and go two: the conversion was blocked. At the start of the complement, Filipo Daugunu supported a new try and the duel became more difficult. Only O’Connor’s drop remained until the end, which put definitive figures to an entertaining encounter.
