DUNEDIN, New Zealand (AP) -- The Western Force hung on with only 13 men on the field for the last 10 minutes to beat the Highlanders 31-29 in Super Rugby on Saturday.
The Force had two men, including former Wallabies No. 8 Ben McCalman, in the sin-bin in the dying minutes of the match, but were able to resist a late Highlanders' surge to post a four-try, bonus point win.
The victory followed last week's 32-7 win over the Melbourne Rebels, giving the Force their first back-to-back wins since April 2011.
Replacement flyhalf Hayden Parker scored a try for the Highlanders in the final minute but missed a wide-angled conversion which would have given the Dunedin-based side a draw.
The Force have now won six of their eight games against the Highlanders since 2006.
