    Speaking of two weeks. The guys have a bye next then two scheduled home games against Tahs and Reds.

    Do they get to return to Perth?

    Not sure they can.

    A 10 week tour. Jeez that is a tough run.

    Do they send a few guys over or back? The 14 day quarantine would mean the bye is the time to use.

    Nice story here with Lee Warner.

    Western Force coach Tim Sampson has challenged his side to win their next four Super Rugby matches.
    It’s a lofty target but second-rower Fergus Lee-Warner, man-of-the-match in the gut wrenching 25-20 extra-time loss to Melbourne Rebels, says they can go the distance.
    The Force have lost their first four games but have taken an early lead in three only to see it snatched away.
    They have a bye this weekend before taking on the Waratahs and Lee-Warner said: “We believe we can go four from four.
    “We just need to get that monkey off our back. Once we get that first win we’ll be right, we’ll get a roll on.
    “You are never happy with losing but we are a tight group of mates, you get back on the bus and focus on the next game.
    “There’s no point dwelling on what has happened.”
    Lee-Warner, 26, has been one of the unsung heroes of the Super campaign.
    He made 68 hard won metres in 13 carries, 17 tackles and grabbed his first Super try from a line-out maul against the Rebels.
    “We were gutted that we didn’t win. We thought had a good shot,” he said.
    “I really thought we had it towards the end and we were going to win.”
    But with the Rebels on the back foot errors and concentration lapses slipped into the Force game.
    “Super Rugby teams will take advantage of that and score,” Lee-Warner said.
    Sampson said: “Fergus was outstanding. He was brilliant.
    “He’s a tough footy player, very had to bring down.
    “He’s got a really strong carry, his defence is outstanding. He just goes about his job.”
    Two years ago Super Rugby was the last thing on Lee-Warner’s mind.
    He had finished his construction management degree and was heading to Sydney to take up an apprenticeship.
    The 194cm, 112kg Lee-Warner had been playing Shute Shield for Easts and for Sydney Rams in the NRC when Global Rapid Rugby director of rugby Matt Hodgson came calling.
    “I didn’t know what to think at first but then thought ‘what have I got to lose’.
    “I didn’t know what to expect but when I arrived in Perth I knew something good was happening and now we’re playing Super Rugby.
    “Rapid Rugby was really good for us. It gave us our identity and our style of footy.
    “Everyone says they love watching us because we’re not afraid to chance our arm and we play an expansive style of rugby.
    “That’s what people want to watch and that’s what we’ve brought from Rapid Rugby.”

    Did you shout the whole pub a beer? Well done.
    When I see my ball heading towards the hole on a par 3, I secretly hope that it does not actually go in! Happy enough with a gimme birdie!
