Western Force selectors have made six changes to the 22-man side that will go head-to-head with the Rebels, in Perth, on Sunday.
The backline sees a significant reshuffle as Ben Seymour is shifted to flyhalf for his second start in the run-on side this season. David Harvey moves to fullback.
Having recovered from a lengthy injury, Will Tupou is now fully fit and returns to the side and will pair up with Rory Sidey in the centres.
In the forwards, Ben McCalman will make his return to the No.8 jersey after recovering from an arm injury, while Matt Hodgson has slotted back into the blindside flanker role. Richard Brown will be rested after sustaining knee injury against the Sharks last weekend.
Nick Cummins will also miss this week’s game with a quadricep strain.
The last time these sides met the Rebels made an explosive start and, despite an impressive comeback from the Force, they were able to held on for a one-point victory. The Force will certainly be looking for a better result this weekend.
