    The Force won 19-12 after leading 13-12 at half-time.

    The Force scored the only try of the match through wing Alfie Mafi, while flyhalf Sias Ebersohn was on target with the conversion as well as four penalties.

    The Reds replied with four penalties by pivot Quade Cooper.

    The Force picked up four points for their victory, while the Reds had to be content with a single point for losing by seven or fewer points.
