    A bit on radio & some in the paper-havenít noticed much on TV. Would be nice to have Gossage make a mention? We really need to get it fired up the next few days, I think the weather might be a factor.

    I thought originally this friday was forecast to have clear skies. Will be a shame to have yet another wet game.

    Should be chucking it down for the Captain's run on Thursday: 15-35mm of rain; "The chance of a thunderstorm. Possible small small hail in the afternoon and evening."

    Although what small small hail is, I'm not sure.

    Small hail is the type of hail that u can feel hitting your hands but as soon as it touches the ground it instantly dissolves and you can not tell it has hailed.

    Western Force v Hong Kong Dragons Team List
    August 8, 2018

    The Western Force has made six changes to its squad to take on the free-running Hong Kong Dragons in World Series Rugby Game 6.

    Heavyweight Kieran Longbottom will make a long-awaited return from injury with a start on the bench. The former Saracens prop was in magnificent form when in his return to the Force when he suffered a debilitating neck injury in game two and has worked non-stop to make his way back into the squad.

    Rodney Iona will also rejoin the squad from a highly successful World Cup qualifying tour representing Samoa.

    Cameron Orr will run on for his first start, replacing a rested Harry Lloyd, with brother Harrison and last games debutante Jack McGregor also earning their first start honours.

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

    Hamstring injuries to Masivesi Dakuwaqa and Feleti Kaituíu, a knee injury to Rod Davies and a shoulder injury to Tom Sheminant have forced further changes in a 24-man-squad while Chris Alcock has been rotated out.

    Leon Power has moved in as a starting lock with Johan Bardoul away playing out a short-term contract for the Coca-Cola Red Sparks in Japan.

    Harry Scoble, Fergus Lee-Warner and Markus Vanzati have also been named in the squad to start as reserves.
    Forceís young gun Clay Uyen will start on the wing with McGregor moving to fullback to cover for Peter Grant who has slotted into number 10.

    The Hong Kong Dragons match is set to be a momentous game as both Marcel Brache and Brynard Stander have earnt their 50th Western Force caps after joining the club in 2014.

    In: Harry Scoble, Markus Vanzati, Kieran Longbottom, Fergus Lee-Warner, Rodney Iona and George Pisi.
    Out: Andrew Deegan, Harrison Lloyd, Feleti Kaituíu, Tom Sheminant, Chris Alcock and Masivesi Dakuwaqa.

    Are they all Hong Kong locals? How many players are test reliable? I assume this is a representative side not their test team?

    Interesting lineup though. Expected to see a few more traditional asian names but I assume their are a few guys that have had their names translated to English.
