    Western Force to head to Singapore for World Club Challenge Cup

    Western Force to head to Singapore for World Club Challenge



    THE Western Force is set to compete for the inaugural World Club Challenge Cup in Singapore next year.

    The Force will take on English premiership clubs Gloucester and Saracens, and a yet-to-be named French club.

    A Force delegation was in Singapore last week to discuss the possibilities of staging the competition with former England and British Lions hooker Phil Greening who is based in Singapore and who is good friends with Force coach John Mitchell.

    The July 2009 clashes will take place at Singapore's famous cricket club and Greening said the event is planned to be hosted by Singapore for at least the next five years.

    "This will be the first time professional clubs with world-class players such as Mike Tindall, Chris Jack and Matt Giteau have played in Singapore," he said.

    "It is a great opportunity to bring a world-class rugby event to Asia... with the historic Padang as the backdrop, the World Club Challenge will have something for everyone."

    well Giteau is still contracted to the Force until late next year, but the dates of the tournament are right in the middle of the tri-nations, i doubt dingo deans will release him to play.

    The tournament sounds very interesting though, it would be good if it could get nice and big but with the top players from all the sides playing.

    No chance Giteau will be playing, but who cares - that is an away trip I can get behind. Now to start plotting...

    A lot cheaper than the east coast. For that price you should go for a long weekend road trip...

    JULY SCHOOL HOLIDAYS Looks like all of you who have children now have to take the young'uns along!

    Yes please! This seems like a really great idea. Good for singapore rugby, and they sell super cheap wallabies jumpers over there. hehe.
