    They're a lightweight bunch. There's only info on 5-6 of the named squad on that website, but the reserve props (17 & 18) are 101 kg & 98 kg, and the reserve back-rower is 92 kg.

    Duo celebrate 50 Caps
    August 9, 2018

    Force duo Marcel Brache and Brynard Stander will be running out against the Hong Kong Dragons on Friday night in a monumental game to mark their 50th Western Force caps.

    Marcel and Brynard debuted merely weeks apart in 2014 and have since developed a close friendship over the years.
    Brynard and Marcel’s experience and charismatic personalities has made them favourites in the club, giving the entire squad that little bit more motivation to make this game a memorable one.

    Marcel spoke of the opportunity to share the experience on Friday at nib stadium, where his Force career began.
    “Not only I am excited that I get to share this experience with Brynard, who joined the Force at the same time as me, but with nib Stadium,” Marcel said.

    “Playing my 50th game where I was fortunate enough to begin my career and to be able to share that with my friends, family and of course the fans.”

    Likewise, Brynard too was excited to share the honours with longtime friend and teammate Marcel.
    “It’s going to be a great experience being able to share a moment like that in your career with somebody special like Marcel, who I have been with for a long time,” Brynard said.

    “It’s going to be a wonderful night.”

    Coach Tim Sampson spoke about how important it was to celebrate the game and the success of Brynard and Marcel as a team.

    “You know it’s fantastic to see and there are not too many milestones that have been achieved within this club being one of the younger clubs,” Tim said.

    “It’s great and what’s interesting is that they debuted for the Force within two weeks of each other back in 2014 so they’re good mates and it’s great that they can share this together.”

    So after searching for "Deegan" and then clicking in circles for the next 20 minutes I give up?
    Is he injured?
    I recon he's looked really good in previous games.
    Why is Mr Deegan not in the side?

    Hot on the heels of an outstanding performance in the barbarian Wallabies’ trial squad, Andrew Deegan has been rested while trial squad teammate Tevin Ferris will start as a flanker.

    So outstanding that he did not even rate the slightest of mentions on "that show" last night, pretty much every other player got a mention except him and Tevin. I guess it was hard for them when the main focus about the game was how many bourbon cans and hot dogs Drew Mitchell had at the game.

    Was their actually any mention at all of the Force or tomorrows game? Everyone I've spoken to also must have missed the Force segment (if one actually happened). Are the RA/Foxsports shunning WA rugby by not reporting on the only actual game of any real significance happening this week in Australian rugby? Those arseholes over east really want to eradicate any trace of our existance.

    Andrew Forrest’s World Series Rugby is still bubbling and Hong Kong get their chance to audition against Western Force

    Sam Agars - South China Morning Post - 9 August 2018


    The HKRU have shown interest in the mining magnate’s breakout competition from the outset and get a first-hand look on Friday in Perth.

    Hong Kong will get their first taste of Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest’s “World Series Rugby” when they take on the Western Force in Perth on Friday as details around a more permanent version of the mining magnate’s breakout competition remain vague.

    Hong Kong have shown interest from the outset of what was initially labelled the Indo-Pacific Rugby Championship, before Forrest launched his World Series earlier this year to ensure the Force seven fixtures in 2018.

    Hong Kong are the sixth team on the Force’s schedule – after the likes of Fiji A, Tonga and Samoa – and Hong Kong Rugby Union chief executive Robbie McRobbie says he will be watching Friday’s action “with keen interest”.
    “It’s obviously interesting for us to see how we would stack up against the Force if we ended up in the competition,” he said.
    “We are watching developments with interest and we remain interested in the competition, depending on what the details are like.
    “We believe that certainly there is an intention to kick the competition off next year but that’s as much as there is to say at the moment.”

    The West Australian reported last week that next year’s competition could run from March to June and feature eight teams and a A$1 million purse, with New Zealand, Japan, Fiji, Hong Kong and Singapore touted as potentially providing teams.

    Forrest hatched the idea after Rugby Australia removed the Force from Super Rugby and, despite a number of hurdles, remains determined to keep his beloved side alive.

    The Force have won three of their five fixtures so far and will provide a stern test for a Hong Kong side that McRobbie says will be experimental.
    While about one third of the squad will be made up of current Hong Kong players, the rest will come from outside the elite rugby programme.

    "It’s an opportunity for [coach] Leigh Jones to have a look at those players who might be pressing a claim for selection in the coming months,” McRobbie said. “It’s a good chance to give them a run against strong opposition and it should be a good test.”

    The match forms part of Hong Kong’s build-up to the final stage of qualifying for the 2019 World Cup in Japan, which will see them take on Canada, Germany and an African side – likely Kenya – in a repechage in France in November.
