    Wallabies 2023

    Would be ideal if one of Harrison, Edmed or Donaldson could come to the Force for the year to cover Pasitoa's injury.

    Force 2023

    I was surprised to see this also, especially given Pasitoa is going to be out for the year. We've got a bunch of options who should be serviceable (Stewart, Hegarty, Kuenzle, Strachan, Prior), but we really need better than that

    Wallabies 2023

    What's the news on Izack Rodda - I thought he was supposed to be back from injury in time for this tour?

    Australia A v Japan XV matches

    Really? I thought he played very well. A key turnover early on, at least a couple of line breaks and offloads, a very important covering tackle that probably saved a try and tackled strongly. If there were any stats available for the game, I'd think his would look rather decent.

    Force 2023

    Seriously?! That's very disappointing if true. He looked great in the very limited time he was given and should really have been given now time ahead of Prior. Looks to have a pretty high ceiling and a local product, so thought keeping him on was a no brainer

    Blues vs Brumbies SF, June 11 2022

    So taking out the scrum half and side entry and blatantly trying to pull down a maul are ok now?

    Crusaders v Chiefs SF 10/06/22

    You can chalk that try up to Josh Ioane. 2 rubbish kicks for touch, and then shocker of a chip kick from his own 22 to hands possession straight back to the crusaders. Almost a direct result of the questionable forcing of Bryn Gatland having to go off for an HIA but Matera not having to

    Isi would certainly be a good for for the force. What's his contract status?

    Tribe v Force 21/05/22 at FMG

    The Force need all the help they can get based on recent performances

    Western Force v Waratahs: Saturday 16th April

    Yeah, destroying a team and needing to rebuild from scratch definitely not a factor. Nor continually having a severe disadvantage in salary cap. Nor constant white anting from Rugby Australia (note leaked stories in the last few weeks from Rugby Australia in regards to Sampson being replaced, FLW (Fergus Lee-Warner) leaving, etc., as well...

    Western Force v Waratahs: Saturday 16th April

    No Rodda and Robbo still for the Force makes it a much tougher prospect. Rest of the team looks solid though. Pretty rough on Lacey after a great game last week to be left right out, and same for Fines-Leleiwasa who has generally been very good. But definitely need to get some game time into...

    Western Force v Waratahs: Saturday 16th April

    Hooper and Gamble starting will be tough to deal with. This is the side I'd like to see: 1. Robertson (hopefully he's back) 2. Kaitu'u 3. Holmes (need to ensure we've got parity or advantage at scrum time) 4. Rodda 5. FLW (Fergus Lee-Warner) (Thrush is solid, but would prefer the extra mobility and workrate of FLW (Fergus Lee-Warner)...

    FORCE v Rebels - Friday 8 April, HBF Park

    Where are you seeing this updated team list Equalizer? Can you post it please? If Rodda is out, that is definitely a big loss for the Force. Interesting that Sankey has leapfrogged Macauley and Pugh. Looking forward to seeing Tapine given some minutes.

    Wallabies 2023

    Something like this would make a lot of sense and help even the playing field. For example, if the Tahs were the team receiving the highest total wallaby top-ups for a year, there could be something like: Force Salary Cap = Base salary cap + 50% x (Waratahs total top ups minus tops ups being...

    Wallabies 2023

    I also doubt they are intentionally biased against a particular franchise. However given Rugby Australia and the Wallabies staff (outside of the players) have pretty much no WA representation, would visit the Force far less than the other clubs (due to it being further away and inconvenient), and likely...

    Wallabies 2023

    I wasn't questioning why FLW (Fergus Lee-Warner) hasn't been given a top-up, but why he hasn't even been considered as being on the fringes and given a call by the wallabies coaching staff in regards to what he needs to work on to potentially get a call up. I think that's probably all that would've been required to...

    Wallabies 2023

    https://www.rugby.com.au/news/lalakai-foketi-resigns-with-australian-rugby-nsw-waratahs-2022330 So a Waratah that's a very fringe wallaby (at best) gets a 2 year contract with an Rugby Australia top-up, but FLW (Fergus Lee-Warner) who has been playing consistently and banging the door down for national selection for the last 3...

    Force v Brumbies 25 March 2022 @ HBF Park

    We must have been watching a different game. I thought McIntyre was terrible. So many loopy passes ruining attacking opportunities and a very average kicking game with his pop gun boot. Could'nt believe they left him on for 70 with Pasitoa sitting on the bench
