    Its got to be something that the crowd can pick up really easily and appeals. "Beast" works really well for the Sharks. I can see "Bloooo" working really well for us whenever on an attacking foray or we have a scrum or a maul.

    We're Blue because we're Blue is like Swing low Sweet Chariot. It would work because of its simplicity. The Twickenham crowd are like ours, reserved. Swing Low or something like it, short and easy to pick up is all that was ever going to work. Even at Cardiff, most of the Crowd only know a few specific lines "Bread of Heaven" and "Land of our Fathers". Most of them don't know anything else.

    Lets go with this and not spend hours discussing things that are never going to work

    Are there any teams in Australia where the crowds have a song? I'm not sure I have ever heard one. "Come on you blues" repeated may be a welcome alternative to FOOORCE? Agree blooos sounds too much like booos! I think we need more organisation in the crowd participation. The barmy army would be a good example- one person who instigates the chant and is a focus for all the supporters around him. Even Perth Glory now have a similar individual behind the goal who gets things going. Does anyone have someone suitable in mind perhaps in the centre of the east stand where they can easily be seen ( will need oversized flag for the purpose of attracting attention) or at the shed end?

    I agree a song/chant should be easy to remember. How about an INXS song? Or something West Australian?

    As for chants, the PA system could be a starter point. Also, chants could be centred around Westie.

    Clap-clap, Clap-clap-clap. Let's go Westie.

    Ole, ole-ole-ole, Westie, Westie.

    As for team specific,

    Sea-of-Blue, Sea-of-Blue, Sea-of-Blue....

    I am, you are, were West Australian. (no ones bagged that) or we are the western force.

    Finally, waltzing Matilda changed to Western Australia, Western Australia, Rugby in Western Australia For me, and we'll sing till were hoarse, because we support the Western Force, Rugby in Western Australia for me.

    I could go on all night.

    'We're blue because we're blue...'... Sounds good to me

    One would hope we will be moving well past that going forward!

    We are accused of becoming African, so how about "Western Force, bomaye"

    Some suggestions that were put together a couple of years ago on this website..

    Always Looking at our Mighty Force

    Sung to Monty Python’s ‘Always look on the Bright Side of Life’

    Always looking at our Mighty Force
    The Force
    The Force
    The Force
    The Force
    Always looking at our Mighty Force
    The Force…

    Gonna be a Force Day.
    Sung to the tune of Rolf Harris’s ‘Gonna be a Fine Day’

    Gonna be a Force Day.
    Gonna be a Real Force Day.
    Repeat ad infinitum..

    Hodgo's Blue Army
    Sung to the tune of ‘Lord of the Dance’
    Sing Sing wherever you may be
    We are Hodgo's Blue Army
    We'll kick your arse whoever you may be
    We are Hodgo's Blue Army


    7. Western Force Man

    Sung to the tune of ‘Working Class Man’
    Training hard to make a living
    Bringing Pride to the Game
    A father, son cheer him on
    Blue & Black runs in his veins
    Oh Oh Oh Oh He’s a Western Force Man

    Well He’s a Rugby Union Disciple
    He’s a Legend of his kind
    He’s running like a cyclone
    Across the opposition line
    Oh Oh Oh Oh He’s a Western Force Man

    He believes in Foley and Web Ellis
    He scores tries when he can
    He did his time in the Grades
    Still as keen now he’s a man
    He’s a Team Man
    With a Heart of Gold
    In God’s Own Land
    Oh Oh Oh Oh He’s a Western Force Man

    I think the 'Blue Army' would work quite well. Sounded a bit better with 'Sharpie' in it, mind you, nothing against Hodgo!

    How about the occasional opening guitar cords from over the PA followed by a simple West-ern-For-orce from the crowd. Bit like the Brumbies do with the mexican tune followed by ole from the crowd. May need to get permission for that.

    We need someone with a BIG voice.. I tried when Barnett waltzed in to the middle of the field I ran around to the shed end and I tried to get "We want a stadium and we want it now"...but my battery was pretty flat at that stage.. SNOB will verify my battery doesn't last much after half time ..sometimes not even to half time..

    Only in Perth:

    After the away team has taken the field the announcers turn up the speakers and Phil Collins In the air tonight begins.

    The words are changed slightly, but the main difference is instead of saying 'Oh lord' you say 'Go Force'.

    Force emerge at the drum solo!

    Rough Draft:

    I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Force
    And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Force
    Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Force

    Well if the [Insert away team name here] were drowning, I would not lend a hand
    I've seen your team before my friends, but I don't know if you know who I am
    Well I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two eyes
    So you can wipe off that grin, you're not going to win
    It's all been a pack of lies

    And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Force
    Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Force
    I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Force
    Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Force, oh Force

    Well I remember, I remember our story, how could I ever forget
    It's the first time, the last time we ever met
    But I know the reason why you keep your silence UP, oh no you don't fool me
    Well the hurt doesn't show, but the team still grows
    It's no stranger to you and me.

    ***Drum solo and team runs out onto the pitch***

    And I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Force
    Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Force
    I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Force
    Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Force, oh Force

    Music Fades as Force get into huddle/position before kick off!
