    Oh what a real bummer. Hope he’s still going to be assisting at the Force, he’s a great mentor for the team.

    Sad to hear about Peter.

    Sad too that there will be no Japanese entrant in GRR for 2019. Fingers crossed it’s only because of the RWC disruption and they’ll be in for 2020.

    Sadd news about Peter, he was one of only a few who lived up to the hype. Where did you get the Japan info? I didn't see it confirmed in that article, did I miss something?

    I assume what was written right at the end.

    "The Force will play sides from Fiji, Samoa, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia in the GRR competition."

    Peter will be a great loss to the force. He was always that cool, calm collected head in times of pressure. Maybe he can take up a part time role as the kicking coach for the force?
