    Andrew Forrest’s bankrolled World Series Rugby set for expansion

    Western Force could battle as many as seven teams for a $1 million purse in an expanded World Series Rugby competition next year.
    Mining magnate Andrew Forrest has already caused the biggest shake-up in Australian rugby since it turned professional 23 years ago by bankrolling WSR and the Force.
    Initially designed to keep the Force afloat after they were axed from Super Rugby last year, WSR has established a foothold.
    Forrest is getting ready to roll out a new five-year plan after the Force finish their seven-exhibition game series. Two of the new sides are believed to come from Japan.

    Good stuff. A legit comp for the boys to play in, RugbyRoos spreading the gospel and now we need to dig in and start revitalizing our local comp and we should just fine as a rugby community. Starting to feel excited about rugby again. Well done Hodgo and Twiggy.
