Western Force dominate Samoa A
ESPN Staff
February 7, 2014

The Western Force has kicked off their pre-season fixtures with a strong 69-3 win over Samoa A at Lark Hill Sports Complex in Rockingham. The Force crossed the line 11 times in their display of dominance.

The Samoa A was quick to draw first blood with a penalty goal early in the match, but the home side amounted a 19-3 lead after the first two quarters on the back of countless barnstorming runs from No.8's Ben McCalman and Brynard Stander, while inside centre Kyle Godwin continued to put his side within attacking range through a number of incisive runs down the left hand side.

After several half time changes, the Force accelerated through the back half of the match, touching down for another eight tries, with the Force scrum earning an early penalty try as well as Ed Stubbs and Pek Cowan both crossing, and a rampant Stander helping to set up Patrick Dellit with the winger scoring untouched in the corner.

Leading by 42 points leading into the final quarter, the Force completed the rout with Luke Morahan's double, Stander dotting down from the back of the scrum and young outside back Dylan Sage showing significant pace to run around the Samoan defence and score under the posts.
