    World Series Rugby has a bright future, says former Wallaby Berrick Barnes

    Former Wallaby Berrick Barnes says World Series Rugby has a bright future but is uncertain where Super Rugby lies in the sport’s landscape.
    Barnes also believes Panasonic Wild Knights, his club since 2013, is keen to join an expanded WSR as mining magnate Andrew Forrest gets ready to roll out a five-year plan - starting with eight sides set to battle for a $1 million purse.
    The powerful Top League side, that takes on Western Force in Friday’s WSR clash at nib Stadium, is expected to be one of two Japanese clubs to join the new competition next year.
    “We’d like to be involved. There’s a lot of stuff to go before that happens, but I think everyone’s waiting to see where the cards are going to fall,” Barnes said.

    I wonder who the other Japanese side would be? Anyone care to guess? Suntory Sungoliath?

    Would be a good InnForcers Tour.

    Thinking about it, will InnForcer Tours continue in the WSR? There could be some really interesting ones, although with a home and away season, they might lose a bit of their exclusivity if we go to the same place year after year.

    Criteria = Force playing and three+ InnFORCEers on tour, I fully expect there to be some WSR tours

    Anyone heard from the local we met up with? (Can't even remember his name - old age is a terrible thing!)
