A try from our very own Jordan Olowofela helps the Force to a home win over the Tahs: https://youtu.be/021uulc8aI8
Nice to see him keep working round for that and remaining and option coming from the blindside for the 10. Nice little jink to stand up the last defender and ensure that he had an easy run in. Looks like he may have added a little muscle to his frame as well. Hopefully he'll come back brimming with confidence and looking to add something. I think Borthwick might give him one last chance to comeback and stake a claim.
I only watched the highlights but he still looks quite hesitant whenever he does anything. I don’t know if things would have been any different had he been handled differently when he broke through but nonetheless I think his integration into the senior squad was done very poorly.

Yeah, I reckon one more year after this one and he'll be done.

Looks like some game, despite the weather some incredible skill on show. Chiefs will be kicking themselves that McKenzie wasn't on song with the boot otherwise that would have made things more interesting.

Hopefully the Crusaders will look after the trophy this time round.

Highlights of Crusaders vs Brumbies, the latter were very unlucky to not get the draw unfortunately.

Olowofela will be returning to Leicester on 1st July, following the end of the Super Rugby TransTasman season.

I was hoping he would stay in Perth to finish off the club rugby season but it isn't to be unfortunately. He will be back for the Tigers pre-season, hopefully having benefited from his time playing in Australia.

To me that's a good thing, the fact we're bringing him back for the preseason suggests he's well in Borthwick's plans going forward.
Used to run around with an 11, 14 or 15 on my back.

Agreed.

Outside of professional commitments at the weekend, he was spotted watching his nominated "junior" club on Saturday afternoon, prior to his own match against Chiefs later that evening.
He certainly seems quite a reserved and unassuming young guy, and appears to have both feet firmly on the ground, despite his growing cult status amongst the Force fans.

I'm glad he got to spend time in Perth and is getting a good, deserved, run in the side before being able to take those learnings back to Leicester ahead of next season.
