    The honey badger is coming home!
    Former Western Force winger Nick Cummins, with his cult following of woolly wig, head-bandaged fans, will be back for the club's Global Rapid Rugby showcase series opener against a World XV on Friday March 22 at HBF Park.
    But the badger-army will have split loyalties - he will be hunting “meat pies” (tries) for the invitation side.

    Well that's added a few more to the crowd.
    Some interesting players in the squad.
    They will test us without a doubt. Thanks to Robbie Deans for brining this team.

    That's it. Not going. I was already pissed off about missing the meat tray raffle and Chase the Ace down the Boatie, but that does it!!

    But seriously what great news.

    Get it all over the media boys!!

    I didn't know this World XV is linked to the Baa Baas. Methinks, or hopes, big things ahead for rugby in Perth and our Western Force.

    World XV isn’t linked to the Barbarians. Twiggy could hire Optus Stadium for a Force v Barbarians match and the funds go to farmers or Aboriginal communities. C category tickets sold for a fiver that’s how Stade Francais filled the Stade de France. Cash donations on the day.Throw in match programs as well.

    Not to mention the game is not at a Shasta Friendly Time Slot.

    7's in 2016 according to Wiki. But he's a winger, so no probs.

    Stand on the chalk, don't drop the ball, flick your blonde hair back. Reading that back it sounds a lot like Hooper

    I'd love it if this was the Barbars. I actually wonder if, whenever we need an invitational side, Twiggy could get the Barbarians or the French Barbarians? Be nice to get a French team in Perth one of these days.

    Winder who they're getting for Bledisloe Eve?

    If New Zealand Rugby has any sense, they'd put their hand up for the Bledisloe eve game, to provide a Maori All Blacks, or Baby Blacks side, to provide a hit-out for guys who are on the cusp of RWC selection.

    A Force vs Maori All Blacks match would absolutely sell out.

    That’s what they have done with the matches in Chicago. Could be on the cards as it gives the NZRU more matches for their players while the ABs are playing.

    This was in The West

    Six of the Force games will be played at HBF Park and the team will go on the road for games in Fiji, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Brisbane with a Malaysia-based side likely to play in the Bledisloe weekend game.
