    Rocket Rod! Wow didn't even know he was still around! Wonder how much gas he still has.

    he played NRC and was very fast. Looked like he hasn't lost any. Also didn't get injured!

    From what I saw, he likes to avoid any collisions. Adds to his speed in attack, no doubt, and minimises chances of injury in defense.

    Only 10 signatures atm. Are the force sitting on announcements or something?? I don’t see any reason why they would but it seems really weird that at this stage there are only 10 players that have put pen to paper

    I think he must have missed one game with injury because he did a spell of commentary for WSR. Not too bad, either.

    It's actually 15 and the WF are progressively rolling out the signings.

    What's your point? GRR is going to happen despite being delayed by experts (especially the RA).

    Look how quickly the WF was re-established and WSR got going in 2018.

    Compared this to the train wreck known as RA.

    If you have no interest in GRR why care?

    two very exciting players. Tizzano is one of the best young backrowers in Australia at the moment, in a position we seem to have a glut of talent coming through.

    Ben Grant is barely 20 and about 204cm. Not many locks that size running around. Hopefully Van the Man can prove a good mentor to him.

    Pleasing to see Nick Jooste return to the West.

    Excellent coverage in the halves as well as F/B.

    Welcome back lads.

    Yogi (Lock/#6), Feliti (Hooker) and Markus (Prop) all stepped up during WSR 2018.

    Expect them all to play bigger roles in GRR in 2019.

    By my count that's 23 confirmed with more to come.
    Interested to see what new players are added to the list in 2019.

    Excellent re-signings.
    Need some new power-house/line-breaking centres and wingers.

    For those that might be interested, BLK currently has some crazy cheap prices for Force gear on their website atm.

    Kinda would’ve liked to see the force do a 12 signings of Christmas promotion. Announce a new player every day, get people regularly checking into to social media in the days leading up to Christmas. On Christmas Day/Boxing Day do some sort of membership or merch promotion.
