    Team for Tonga and a bit of Thrush signing

    Former All Black Jeremy Thrush signs with Western Force

    Western Force have signed former All Blacks second-rower Jeremy Thrush for World Series Rugby.
    Thrush, who made a dozen appearances for New Zealand, has played 110 Super Rugby games and has just finished a three-year stint at English club Gloucester where he featured in more than 50 games.
    News of Thrush’s signing comes as two Australian under-20 players prepare to make their starting debuts for the Force in Sunday’s WSR clash against Tonga at nib Stadium.
    Local product Clay Uyen starts at full-back, replacing Peter Grant who was concussed in last Friday’s win over Fiji, while hooker Alifeleti Kaitu’u comes in for Heath Tessmann who has a hamstring problem.

    Article only mentions the 2 replacements, doesn't mention the team list for the game.

    Had a bit of fun at the press conference today with a photo shoot with members of the "Sea of Red" Tongan supporters and a tug of war between the two supporter groups! We had to let them win today but Sunday will be a different matter!

    The Red Sea vs Sea of Blue

    "WE HAVE THRUSH!"
    "WE HAVE THRUSH!"
    "WE HAVE THRUSH!"
    To the tune of Queensland's "We are Red"
    Seeing as we've been looking for something to chant on matchday.
