    Had to put pocock and hodgo in! Racked my brain for a number 13, was tempted by j pelesasa , seems that's one spot we've always been lacking or am I forgetting someone?

    Digby Ione? Tough with team of the decade as I guess we should only consider the contribution they made during their time at the Force and not what they may have done elsewhere.

    Instead of bagging other choices, just put your own team down and let's see what the TWF team would be

    Western Force to unveil 'Team of the Decade'

    By rugbywa on Thu 21st May 15 in Team of the Decade, Nathan Sharpe Medal

    Western Force supporters are being encouraged to vote in the club’s Team of the Decade as part of the Force’s 10th season celebrations in 2015.

    The team will be announced at the club’s annual Nathan Sharpe Medal Dinner at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre on Saturday, 11 July.

    Nominees have been shortlisted from the 136 players that have represented the Force since 2006, with the fan vote, media involvement and player input determining the final XV.

    Members will have the first opportunity to vote each week through the Sea of Blue Newsletter, while subscribers will be invited to take part through the Western Force’s online newsletter, Cut Out Pass.

    Voting links will also be made available at the beginning of each week and will be accessible through the Western Force’s website (www.westernforce.com.au), Facebook page (www.facebook.com/westernforce) and Twitter feed (@westernforce).

    Simply by taking part, all participants will have the opportunity to win two tickets to the 2015 Nathan Sharpe Medal Dinner to see the ‘Team of the Decade’ unveiled in person.

    RugbyWA CEO Mark Sinderberry says the Team of the Decade is another opportunity for the club’s ‘Sea of Blue’ to be involved in the events of the club’s 10th season.

    “We’re very excited to invite our supporters, who have been so involved in the first decade of the club, to be involved in selecting our ‘Team of the Decade’,” he said.

    “Our passionate ‘Sea of Blue’ is so knowledgeable about our club and our players, and with so many quality players to choose from, they’ll have the chance to experience the tough selection decisions that coaches so often have to make.

    “Announcing our first Team of the Decade is a fitting tribute to the first 10 seasons of the club, and we’d love to have as many people involved around the ‘selection table’ as possible.”

    Voting for the first positional group – the front-rowers – will be open from Monday, 25 May.

    Tickets for the 2015 Nathan Sharpe Medal Dinner will be available for purchase from Friday, 12 June. See www.westernforce.com.au for more information at the time.

    WESTERN FORCE TEAM OF THE DECADE: Voting Dates
    Monday, 25 May – Friday, 29 May: Front row (loosehead & tighthead prop, hooker)
    Monday, 1 June – Friday, 5 June: Locks
    Monday, 8 June – Friday, 12 June: Back row (openside & blindside flanker, No.8)
    Monday, 15 June – Friday, 19 June: Halves (scrumhalf, flyhalf)

    For those keen - a rather hastily assembled page to vote can be found here: http://twf.com.au/totd.php

    You can't edit once submitted, but if you vote more than once, only the last vote will count (previously submitted nomination will be deleted automatically).

    I just have to work on getting the info back out into readable form
