Trust will be a key word for Western Force as they attempt to fix their leaky defence ahead of their home fixture against the Brumbies in Perth.

The Force conceded a worrying six tries in their 43-21 loss to the Waratahs over the weekend, but back-rower Ben McCalman said the defensive issues could easily be fixed.

"We're remaining very positive," McCalman said. "I'm not too worried at the moment. The defence is something we feel we can turn around in a short space of time. We just have to work on spacing and trusting the player either side of you. It's something we've done really well in the past, so it's not a huge problem for us.

"There's a very high expectations within the group. We're not happy with how we played, especially in defence. Scoring 21 points - ideally a few more would be perfect. But giving a team like that 40 points - it's going to be hard to beat."
