    Honestly mate, completely honest, every east coast rugby fan I know is thrilled to have the Force back. They are no way out of their league and right on the quality wanted even after the absence. W's will come.

    Can we please rid this myth that Issak Fines Leleiwasa was solely developed by the Force? The bloke played in the QLD age group teams, won the Alec Evans Medal (QPR player of the year), played NRC for both QLD teams before going to Canberra for a season. Ducked over to Perth for two years now is back at the Brumbies.

    The Force played a part of his development sure, but it is not like he came through their pathway.

    No one wanted him. The force took him and developed him into a better player.

    All I am saying is it's a shame we had them and developed them professionaly and they left because of super rugby. Now we are back. If we were back earlier we would have kept them

    Four AFL teams using Perth as a hub.
    Excellent to see a full page impact for Rugby Union - but we need more good news for rugby as other sports are invading our newly created space.
    A win would be good.

    Like the "Why I Play" wall in the changing room...

    5 excellent young men who have used the pathway into the professional game offered by the Western Force. Would be good to have them all stay as part of the family (including the Sea of Blue).

    Force recharging, reviewing and refocussing

    August 7, 2020
    The Western Force squad moved to Coffs Harbour on the New South Wales north coast for some rest after four Super Rugby AU matches in as many weeks. It’s a welcome opportunity for the Force family to recharge its batteries, review progress to date, and refocus attention on forthcoming matches.

    A catch up with head coach Tim Sampson to discuss the experiences on the road over the past month and to get his thoughts on the challenges ahead.

    Wonder what names for recruitment for next year being considered for the Force.

    Locks with better line out skills, couple of quality backs perhaps key areas for recruitment including a ten and centres given Lance and Godwin contracted elsewhere next year.
