Western Force debut for Kuridrani
February 10, 2021 5:42 am
Long-time Wallabies centre Tevita Kuridrani made his debut for the Western Force in the final pre-season trial before the start of the Super Rugby AU.
Kuridrani and the Force put up a strong fight but were defeated by ACT Brumbies 29-28 last night.
Brumbies led 7-nil at halftime.
The Force came stronger in the second half and was up 19-14.
The Brumbies took the lead shortly after when Connal McInerney supplied the finishing touch to a driving maul.
The Force moved back into the lead with a Grason Makara try, assisted and converted by Argentinian flyhalf Domingo Miotti.
However, an 87th-minute Lachlan Lonergan penalty snatched the win for the Brumbies.
The two sides meet again on February 19 in their Super Rugby AU season opener in Perth.
