‘We needed that’: Gordon, Kellaway star as Rebels score epic comeback win as Force capitulate


Doubles to Carter Gordon and Andrew Kellaway have seen the Melbourne Rebels overturn a massive 15-point second-half deficit against the Western Force to record an important win to open Super Round on Friday night at AAMI Park.

Starring down the barrel of a second humbling defeat in as many weeks on home turf, the Rebels scored three tries in five minutes to leave the Force shellshocked.

In total, the Rebels scored 29 unanswered points to seal a memorable victory that will do plenty for the embattled Super Rugby franchise.
