    Anyone know who makes the decisions on selection? Is it just the coaches or does the CEO or anyone else have a say too? Who has the final decision?

    Dropping Taefu altogether makes zero sense to me. What more does the guy have to do?!!!

    That’s tricky to answer without knowing the current form of the whole squad. Ultimately what I want is for there to be genuine competition for spots in the 23 and no ‘givens’ based on purely...

    Let’s hope the Force management select a team based on current form and not on who the player is and what they may have achieved before they arrived at the Force.

    Totally agree. The media release was put out by the Force without any liaison with RugbyWA.

    I would hope so. Given all the research into the long term effects of head injuries, I don’t think beating a concussion test is something that should be easy. Nor anything to brag about.

    Just making the point that even though that media release makes it sound like another Andrew Forrest rescue package, it’s actually RugbyWA - i.e. the community rugby community - who’ve got this...

    Just FYI - this is entirely funded, run and organised by RugbyWA. The Force have allowed the team to use the Force name, but it is not a Force team as such.

    Great piece, although a bit too pro John O’Neill for me.

    I hope that they bring back the NRC, or something similar, as well.

    So I shouldn’t expect any real success for the next 5 to 10 years then :-(

    Someone in the Sea of Blue FB group posted this analysis of the rise of the Uruguayan team in the lead up to the 2019 World Cup. It’s a great watch. I think there are some similarities to where the...

    Not sure whether a bad idea. But it’s never really worked well for the Force before.

    That said, we did need more players this year who were up to super rugby standard, and with the QRU and...

    My two cents: bringing in big-name players, many of whom are only on one one year contracts, has not worked. That’s assuming the aim was to win more games this season.

    I don’t blame the coaches...

    Is Andrew Forrest still giving financial support to all the other GRR teams?

    At least now we’re in Super Rugby the Force gets around $3million from RA, which eases the burden on Andrew Forrest.

    Great write-up Chiragg!
    Taefu is so underrated - he is right up there with the best. I definitely think Kuridrani should be rested, with Taefu and Kahui (if fit) as the centre pairing for the...

    But Toulon filled their whole squad with the best of the best, and money was no object. The Force isn't doing that and the purse strings are nowhere near that loose. We are neither a Toulon nor a...

    Yeah I know you are. I guess I just have to accept that the Force is always going to be an also-ran; a stepping stone on the path to greater things. I need to stop believing all the pre-season hype...

    But how will they ever get to that standard if we keep bringing in the Roddas and Kahuis and Kearneys etc and not giving the locals any game time??

    So just the one season then really.

    How do the Force expect their coach to build a successful, winning team when so many players are only on one-year contracts??

    The Reds are on fire right now. A young team full of hunger. I think they will crush us, sadly.
