TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: The Western Force have made several changes to the 23 as they head to Canberra to take on the Brumbies on Friday.

Ross Haylett-Petty comes into the second row, as Wallaby lock Adam Coleman is set to miss due to a calf injury.

Pek Cowan, Tetera Faulkner and Richard Hardwick all come back into the starting XV after impressive performances off the bench in the 26-19 win over the Reds last Thursday.

Future Force Foundation forward Onehunga Havili Kaufusi is in line to make his Super Rugby debut, while new recruit Robbie Coleman has earned his spot on the bench and could make his Western Force debut against his former franchise.
