Super Rugby 2020: Melbourne Rebels vs Western Force, Finals, Western Force, Cabous Eloff

The Melbourne Rebels are through to their first Super Rugby finals after a last-gasp try to Cabous Eloff sealed a tense 34-30 victory over the Western Force.

The Rebels had to win by four points or more to jump ahead of the NSW Waratahs and qualify in third spot.

The Waratahs were playing all the mind games they could with Alex Newsome turning up to training on Friday in the colours of his old teammates.

“They’re obviously favourites but you know, you’d been feeling a little nervous wouldn’t you,” Newsome told the Sydney Morning Herald.
