    What was missed in that head line is that Ryan Louwrens is leaving. Wonder were he is going off to.

    It says in the story he has gone but not where. He was in SA before coming back to the Force but I also heard he was going to Japan.

    Disappointing if we're losing Louwrens. He's a real talent

    True. A great young bloke but I guess he couldn't see himself getting much game time sitting behind the captain.

    Sad to hear Ryan is leaving, he was just on the verge of getting a Wallaby call up surely! Another career f###kd over by the ARU. I guess game selection was going to be hard behind Ian.

    Happy to see him go to somewhere where he can develop, but another australian team might be a bit too much atm

    It wouldn't surprise me somehow if Ryan was lured off to an NZ franchise, they have a great ability to spot talent.

    While I'm happy for him it seems a shame for the Force especially as Ryan is "the face" of the Force in most of the advertising but welcome to Issak

    That's a real shame... lost another local product with international potential. I'm sure he would have got a call up, but for his injury.

    With respect.... I think Louwrens is a better 9 than Prior.
