The Force have won another World Series Rugby clash, beating the Dragons of Hong Kong 45-24 on Friday night.

Youngster Jack McGregor, who only joined the club in recent weeks from the Rebels, proved the early star with a first-half double.

The former schoolboys flyhalf was playing out of position at fullback in his starting debut but certainly didn't look out of place.

Fellow rising star Clay Uyen nabbed two tries for himself as the hosts began to pull away from their visitors.

Harrison Orr went over just after half-time to kick off the final 40 and Uyen's second stretched the lead even further.

The Force had bounded out to a big lead but the Dragons simply wouldn't go away, narrowing a 26-point margin back to just 14.

The Force plays just one more World Series match, next weekend against Japanese powerhouse Panasonic.
