Dear Western Force and Fans,
Congratulations on your victory tonight against the Queensland Reds. You were the better team on the night and unreservedly deserve your victory.
I owe you an apology: I have since your round two loss to the Kings in Port Elizabeth opined often and loudly that the Force would not win a game this season and I was proven wrong in no uncertain terms tonight. I am sorry.
More to the point I am sorry for being more than a little bit smug about my opinion and a bit dismissive in my consideration of the Force’s form this season.
Good luck for the remainder of the season.
A much chastened rugby fan and supposed pundit
