Western Force sink Reds to land first Super Rugby win of the season

Western Force got their Super Rugby season up and running with a 22-6 win over the Queensland Reds in Brisbane.

With both sides looking to bounce back from opening defeats, the visitors emerged victorious thanks largely to the kicking of Jono Lance, who booted five penalties.

Luke Morahan added some gloss to the scoreline with the only try of the match in the 80th minute, which was converted by Ian Prior.

The Reds' points came courtesy of two penalties from Ayumu Goromaru.
