Two Australian sides that are desperately struggling for form in this season's Super Rugby season, the Force and the Waratahs, meet at the NIB Stadium in Perth in Round 9 on Saturday. The Force have tasted victory just once in 2016, which came in Round 2 against another struggling Australian outfit, the Reds. who were beaten 22-6 in Brisbane. Since when, the Force have loss five fixtures on the bounce.

However, they will draw a fair amount of confidence from their most recent game, when they pushed the Crusaders all the way at Saturday's venue, before going down by 19-20. Other results in Perth have all been losses, to the Brumbies 14-31 and the Rebels 19-25. Unless the Force can improve on a record that has seen them cross their opponents line just eight times in seven games, then they are likely to continue to struggle to record victories. The Sydney based Waratahs have lost the last three meetings against the Force, and will arrive in Perth not only looking to end that sequence, but also to claim just a third win of the 2016 season. Those successes have both come against the Reds, while they have also suffered four defeats.

After struggling to regain the form of 2014, the reigning Super Rugby Champions, the Waratahs, who visit the Force in Perth on Saturday in an Australian derby, are starting to string a run of results together, that looks likely to catapult them into the post-season play-offs and the chance to defend their title. The Western Force are unlikely to halt the Waratahs surge towards the top of the Australian Conference, where they currently trail the Brumbies who have played a game more, by a solitary point. The Perth based team have won just one game in 2015, and that came way back in Round 1, when they surprised Saturday's opponents in their own Sydney backyard.

The Waratahs won a crucial game in Canberra last weekend against the Brumbies by 13-10, a fourth win out of five on the road, including the only loss this season for the Hurricanes, who were beaten in Wellington. That win against the Brumbies was enough to lift them into the top six in the overall table. Last season's fixture between the teams in Perth went the way of the home side by 28-16, a result that ended a run of seven successive Waratah wins in Perth.

Both the Force and the Waratahs who clash in Perth Oval, Perth on Saturday recorded away wins last weekend. Those wins kept both sides in the hunt for top spot in the Australian Conference. The Brumbies currently head the Australian Conference, though both the Western Force and Waratahs are occupying wild card play-off positions, and have game in hand on the Canberra based Brumbies. The visitors will definitely be without Wycliff Palu for Saturday's clash, as the result of the ankle injury that he picked up two weeks ago in the match against the Sharks. Palu missed last week's victory against the Stormers in Cape Town, but has still not recovered sufficiently to return to the side. Waratahs coach Michael Cheika, has sent the player back to Sydney to continue his treatment, in the hope that he will be back in the XV for the Easter Saturday clash with the Bulls at the Sydney Football Stadium.

Utility back Ben Volavola has been called up to the visitors squad as emergency injury cover, as both wingers, Peter Betham and Alofa Alofa are struggling with injuries, picked up against the Stormers. Scans have revealed that Betham has a break in his left foot, while Alofa is suffering with a medial ligament strain in his right knee.

Michael Foley’s old team will play his current team this weekend as the Waratahs travel to Perth to take on the Western Force this weekend. Join thousands of rugby fans and see Western Force v Waratahs live on your computer. Force coach Foley fielded a virtual second string lineup against the British and Irish Lions, resting the likes of Sias Ebersohn and Jayden Hayward as he rated the Waratahs game to be more of a priority. The Force was run ragged by the Lions, losing 69-17, but had some consolation as they netted two tries of their own against the visitors.

The Waratahs went down 23-22 to the Crusaders in Christchurch last weekend. They started positively and were up three tries to one by the 50 minute mark. However the Crusaders started to pull things back through the boot of Dan Carter and managed to eke out a one point advantage. Like they had against the Rebels the week before, the Waratahs earned a last minute penalty, but Berrick Barnes, usually so reliable with the boot, missed what was a reasonably easy conversion by his standards. Will Foley taste victory against his old side? See Force v Waratahs live Super Rugby streaming and find out.
