This week, we do what no sane person would do - we re-live the Force's game against Moana Pasifika. It was too distressing for Heath Tessmann to even consider, so he stayed away.

Heath Tessmann thinks all his Christmases have come at once as we catch up with Western Force forwards coach, Jimmy Duffy, to breakdown the set piece. Mitch Hardy pretends he knows what they're talking about then Mick has a rant in the mailbag. Not a bad ep.
