    Hodgo - Our Captain

    Assuming he plays next week, it will be his 100th Super Rugby Cap - and all those have been with our Western Force.

    So any supporter thinking of a no-show next week based on any despondent feelings after last night's game - THINK AGAIN!

    Be there to support and show him it has all been worth it!

    The team will rally. The Rebels will be confident and cocky (we are their bunnies after-all), we will be massive underdogs - it all points to a better result.

    I'll be there to support Hodgo next week. Amazing effort for us over the years.

    However, I do think this will/should be his final year as our captain. I think the best players should play in their best positions regardless. As much as we like Hodgo, I think everyone knows this hasn't been the case sometimes.

    I think we need a captain with all the same traits as Hodgo. But someone who is also regardless of title will be the first name on the team sheet every week.

    Could not agree more WFDS - McCalman is immense on the field and very understated off it. Just gets on with the job without any fuss and fanfare, just like Hodgo and Pek. Great adverts for our team and the game itself.

    I thought Hodgson played 7 games for the Tahs?

    I'll be there, but it's a shame the game is on at 4.40pm this time of year. Everyone sitting in the eastern stand will have the sun in their eyes the entire game, just hope it's not 37 degrees.

    Hodgo's website says that his Super Rugby debut was with the Western Force.

    I was contemplating not going given our histroy against the Rebels, the time of the game and the fact we are in the eastern stand, but I would not want to miss Hodgo's 100th game and surely the boys will rise for this massive occasion. I just really hope that it is not a hot day!!!

    Very true Tazz. Miserable as it was a showing we can't let Rugby in WA down. It would appear that the current coaching staff seem to be clueless as to a game plan. In the last 10 minutes when they had nothing to lose, just went for it and could play their natural style they got the results. Why did we have to wait 70 minutes of torture to get that? Saw poor Bennie being trotted up to the Last Post after game and said quick hello but you could see he was dead beat & having to face a crowd straight after must've been tough! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FORCE COACHING STAFF And FOLEY IF YOU READ THIS SITE AT LEAST TAKE ON BOARD WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING AND TAKE THE BLINKERS OFF!

    Foley doesn't strike me as the sort of character who will hold his hands up and admit when he's wrong.

    Steve Meehan was well regarded as a coach who believes in a free flowing expansive style of rugby. Look at what he did in the UK with Bath. I don't think his departure, forced or voluntary, was a good thing.

    I've heard Foley say he wants us to play an attacking attractive style of rugby..... Bullshit!!!!!!! There is no proof whatsoever to suggest that is the direction we're heading..... We play exactly the way the Tahs did whilst he was in charge of them.

    If this is the case we're fu@ked. I will go to every game I can and never stop supporting my team as I have done since day one. But it saddens me to have to support a team that plays in a style none of us like.... Just to keep rugby in WA
