    New Western Force recruit Andrew Ready has sights set on national honours

    Hooker Andrew Ready hopes signing with Western Force for the inaugural Global Rapid Rugby competition will re-open the door to national honours.

    The former Queensland Reds rake was tipped as a future Wallaby following a breakout 2016 campaign and was on Australia’s European tour as a development player before falling off the national radar.

    After five years and 30 appearances at the Reds, Ready had a stint in last year’s New Zealand national provincial competition with Southland and was offered a contract in Wales.

    Had he been born in NSW he would have guaranteed Wallaby selection and a 5 year contract without a performance clause
    Gee sucks to be born this side of the mainland.

    Good pickup.

    Seems very concerning. Especially seeing the Wild knights game was by far the best game of the exhibition series last year. Hopefully it's just a typo, but they mention Malaysia so maybe they are no longer interested in it...

    GRR, bankrolled by mining magnate Andrew Forrest, kicks off in March with the Force set to play sides from Fiji, Samoa, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia for a $1 million prize.

    I have no problem with that - in fact I encourage it.

    A separate thread for each new headline. Is stupidity of the highest order

    Much easier just to go off topic occasionally.

    I personally prefer separate threads... usually. It allows for more relevant and nuanced discussions and a greater ability to ignore threads your not interested in. It also makes it easier to find info /discussions. TWF is laid out with sub-forums for topical discussions rather than having everything thing in Uber-threads.

    PS. That post is off topic. Careful or you'll get reported to the boss.
