    I am considering it, but my strength & fitness info is all in single figures. Luckily my rep info is all from last century, so likely pretty hard to refute. Being from WA - and never having been to NZ - they might call me out on being an All Black triallist, but there's plenty of those in this town so I'm hoping for the best.

    Pretty stoked to see this come true if this announcement is correct. Infact i am absolutely over the moon. Living North of Mandurah/South of Rockingham Its usually a huge mission to get up to NIB stadium with the kids etc when a game is on. Especially for Fridays because its such a long way home for me when I work around the city and to get back home to take the family can be impossible in peak hour traffic so I usually can't go with them and have to line up a mate to see it with me after work. Saturday afternoon games are my preference but around 6pm kick offs can be tolerable and I understand its impossible to suit everyone so its a hard one to balance between the social drinkers, Saturday senior rugby players and ofcourse young families..

    Anyways here is the announcement on the Rockingham facebook page. Get excited, its happened, the Force have made it to Larkhill for what looks to be an epic and intriguing match. . .. Grassroots taking on the Force in a grassroots stadium!! Go Mr. Forrest, you just hit another one outta the park!

    Who would pay to watch a bunch of unknowns play against a professional team?

    Would the Force players risk their reputations by playing a side that have paid $2000 each to play against them?

    One week's team preparation?

    Let's not get involved in a rugby arseclown circus.

    We've already got the FMG Premiership Competition for that.

    Try this crap out against the Waratahs first, then come back and talk to us about it.

    No? I wonder why!
    I'm not going to make life easy for you......
    Suggest you do a modicum of research on the background and motivation of the Australian Country Stockman Rugby.
    You'd then get an appreciation of why they do what they do.
    The teams have presented themselves well in the past.
    There's no reason why that shouldn't happen at Lark Hill.

    I suggest that you also have a chat with the coaching staff regarding the impact of too many 2-3 week breaks through the season and the value of game continuity prior to the start of the NRC.
    There is no doubt that there is more benefit from the team playing together rather than just getting game time in Club rugby.

    Even a little bit of research would come up with a lot of links between Minderoo's desire to promote the game of rugby broadly - even into the country - Matt Hodgson's past activities with the Lloyd McDermott Foundation as well as his links with Livin and the Australian Stockman's desire to address the issues re depression and suicide - particularly in the country.

    Doesn't sound like a "rugby arseclown circus" to me......

    To me there's many good reasons why the Western Force and the Australian Country Stockman team should get together at Lark Hill.
    And even more good reasons for me to be there!

    I think JPR or a mod should maybe edit the title to say @ Larkhill instead of @ NIB, might attract a few more people to the game if they are local to Rockingham/ Mandurah/ Serpentine/Kwinana/ Cockburn and come scross this site and see the thread title and realise its going to be in the area. I would imagine the game wont get much advertising except through social media.

    Still stoked its at Larkhill

    Well this announcement says that Larkhill is hosting the finals

    ----
    "We're excited to announce that, not only are we hosting the 2018 FMG @rugby_wa Finals but we're also hosting.....

    So the game is scheduled before the final (as per an earlier annoucement) sometime during the day, we will have to wait and see the fixtures

    Good luck to them in their fund raising. It is a worthy cause. I just don't see its essential connection with professional rugby.

    The game itself, stripped of emotion, and the worthiness of the cause, is a farce on the basis of their advertised team selection criterion, if it is suggested it will be a serious encounter and a "workout" for the Force.

    Although I have heard that Nathan Charles is playing for the "Stockmen", so I suppose the player contribution of $2000 will not be the sole criterion for selection.

    Chacun a son gout.

    Good thing it is not being played at Southern Lions.

    The Australian Country Stockman Rugby Facebook page is saying 6pm kick off. So that means under lights at Lark Hill. Good time. Still early enough to attract all the families and ppl can still watch the FMG final and or Bledisloe and still have plenty of time to get down there.
