    Western Force keen on more World Club 10s silverware

    Nick Taylor - The West Australian - Wednesday, 11 April 2018

    Western Force will play in this season’s World Club 10s tournament in Mauritius for the third year running.
    The newly-resurrected Force will join sides like South Africa’s Bulls and Sharks, English heavyweight Newcastle Falcons, Dan Carter’s Japanese club Kobelco Steelers and French side Montpelier in the June competition.
    The Force took out the title two years ago, beating the Brumbies in the final and finished fourth in last year’s event.
    Force head of elite performance Matt Hodgson said the tournament was ideally placed between the games against Super Rugby sides Rebels and Crusaders.
    “This is a new era for the Western Force and playing against some of the best teams in the world is exactly what we need,” Hodgson said.
    “The organisers heard we were back, a professional side representing WA, and they invited us back.
    “It is a chance to play against high class players in some high class teams.
    “We’ve had some great success in the tournament.
    “We have blooded players and given opportunities to Future Force academy and local players who have gone on to play professional rugby for the Force and around Australia.”

    Mauritius 10s in June

    Western Force in good company.
    Thanks Minderoo.

    How good is it, the rest of the world want a WA team included in rugby. Only our own apparent governing body dont want to know WA
