Reds hold off Western Force

Western Force have fallen just short of toppling the top-of-the-table Queensland Reds 24-31 on Friday night.


The Force raced out of the blocks for a second week in a row to a 14-point lead but were dismantled in just eight minutes when Reds lifted a gear.


Skipper Ian Prior post-game said he was still very proud of his team.


“Disappointed we didn’t come away with the result but certainly building from last week we’re really happy.”


Scorers

Western Force - Tries: Jack McGregor, Byron Ralston (2), Andrew Ready. Conversions: Ian Prior (2).

Reds – Tries: Brandon Paenga-Amosa, Jock Campbell, Taniela Tupou, Filipo Daugunu. Conversions: James O’Connor (4). Drop goals: 1.
