    Wykes and Tupou join Sunwolves

    Good to see two of our past players making super comebacks.

    Sam Wykes and Will Tupou have signed to play for the Sunwolves 2017

    Two hard grafters that while not setting the world alight played well for us and worked hard during their stints with us

    Wishing them all the best, as we do not play them this year we will have to watch the tvs coverage when they play

    Wishing them all the best

    Sucked in to the sunwolves. Their recruitment manager is as useless as wykes if they're giving him a gig!

    At least there's a franchise in super rugby that will take our cast-offs. That is good and bad.

    1 were not the worst-case team in the comp
    2 although it seems as though we're at rock bottom, apparently we can still go down.

    if I recall, a few people took back a couple of things they said about Wykes the season after he left The Force after they realised how much (unsung) work he actually did..

    Wykes was a solid player and did his job right most of the time he has wrongfully copped a lot from a lot of us here!

    Wakes was ok, but proved to be a little emotionally fragile for super rugby. If he had been a little tougher I think he'd have done quite a good job. Called line outs pretty well and, as long as his head didn't get in the way, mostly did what a lock should.

    We needed more from him than he had to give, unfortunately, I think the Sunwolves will have the same problem.

    Let's wait and see how he does. I am sure that he will prove to be a very good member of their squad and do his job on the field specially if his shoulder injuries are behind him.

    Wykes had one good season and then went to water after he got injured. The worst for me was when he captained the force and was jogging back to get into the defensive line (extremely slowly) after a missed tackle only to have the opposition score in the gap where he was meant to be. He then put his hands on his hips and walked back to the huddle to await the conversion. Lack of heart or not good enough - take your pick.
