    Western Force spirits not dampened by Global Rapid Rugby delay, says captain Ian Prio

    Could this be sign that things are about to get moving?

    Western Force spirits not dampened by Global Rapid Rugby delay, says captain Ian Prior

    Western Force captain Ian Prior says the delayed start to Global Rapid Rugby has not dampened player spirits as they count down to the "showcase series" that kicks off next month.
    The $1million tournament, bankrolled by mining magnate Andrew Forrest, will debut next year.
    They were unable to get everything ready after governing World Rugby only gave the go-ahead in late November.
    But the Force will still play a dozen matches against teams from Hong Kong, Fiji, Samoa, Singapore and Malaysia - that will compete with others in GRR next season - and a "world select" side picked from those teams with guest marquee players also expected to make appearances.
    Games will be played in the Pacific Islands and Asia with others planned for New Zealand and the east coast.
    Prior has retained the captaincy from last year's World Series Rugby.
