    Western Force’s clash with Melbourne Rebels no grudge match, says skipper Ian Prior

    Force captain Ian Prior has dismissed suggestions Saturday night’s World Series Rugby clash with Melbourne Rebels at nib Stadium is a grudge match.
    Prior also said the ongoing investigation by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission, into the controversial culling of the Force from Super Rugby and survival of the Rebels would not be a distraction.
    Former coach Dave Wessels moved to Melbourne with a host of players when the axe fell on Western Force last year, but Prior said revenge was not on the minds of his players.
    Mining magnate Andrew Forrest launched the breakaway WSR after Force were cut and the new side has posted a 24-14 win over Fiji and 47-17 victory against Tonga.

    I just noticed the rather less than subtle message to the Rebels, Vic Rugby, Rats Arse and all those involved in the deal that the ASIC investigation is still hanging over them.
    Keep up the pressure.
