    Good to see positive moves by the Force on the recruiting front, but with the U18s doing so well, have to hope the pursuit of success doesn't impinge on ability to develop the local players. In...

    Honestly, I hope the Japanese are watching closely, taking notes, and similarly insist on separate broadcast deals in any future involvement. Would have made a massive difference to the Sunwolves, so...

    I would have said all the back 3 options need to spend serious time on their kicking out of hand over the next 7 months, both penalties and on the run. But especially whoever is looking at the 15...

    Indeed X. I don't doubt Japan can like rugby, the RWC showed that. But it is no surprise they didn't really like SR much and I think they would enjoy ritual slaughter at the hands of the best SR...

    I'll be honest, people keep talking up the idea of Japan joining in some sort of Champions League, but I simply can't see it. With all the best will in the world, I just can't see the Japanese teams...

    It is a pity there seems to be no ongoing commitment to the GRR. With all the current posturing, imagine the interest that would have been generated if right after the England tour, the Force squad...

    I would have also said that if local players are to be ditched, it needs to be for players that are both better and as likely to remain long term. The Force seems to turn over half the team every...

    Hard to argue anyone really showed enough this year to get a look at the Wallabies. They've all got eight months sitting around and thinking about it now, so I guess we'll just have to see how much...

    Japan would be good. But if they want a hint, I would expect Jamie Joseph will follow the same path he trod in 2019 and play a number of 'Wolf-pack' warm-up games ahead of the RWC. If Force...

    In which case, is it an exercise in mental masturbation pretending the Force will even get a say? Sounds to me the answer will be whatever the government cooks up with the Glory - can't see the...

    I honestly think Fines could be anything, if he wants it bad enough. He could do worse than spend a lot of time in video analysis during this off season, looking at the NZ halves and a few others to...

    First, foremost, and above anything else what the Force needs are a fullback and at least one winger that can kick long and accurately. Not being able to clear lines or gain territory are the main...

    I'd be deeply sceptical. If there was even the remotest possibility, RA would have long since leaked it and they'd already be wheeling out the team song.
