    Force vs Malaysia Valke 9 August, 6:30pm

    Perth to host rugby feast
    July 8, 2019
    Less than 24 hours before the historic Bledisloe Cup clash between the Wallabies and All Blacks in Perth, West Australia’s Western Force will put its unbeaten Rapid Rugby record on the line against Malaysia’s best, supported by South African Currie Cup team The Falcons.

    With a family friendly kick-off time of 6.30pm on Friday, August 9, entry just $10, and an influx of rugby loving visitors in town, a big crowd is expected at Perth’s HBF Park.

    The clash rounds out a 14 game Showcase Series in which Rapid Rugby’s high-octane 70-minute mix of sport and entertainment was introduced in six locations across five countries – Hong Kong, Singapore, Fiji, New Zealand, and Australia.

    Matches in Perth have seen almost 60 points and 8.5 tries scored on average as players enjoy the freedom of Rapid Rugby’s laws that highlight their skill with ball in hand and provide spectators a fast, end-to-end, fun and exciting game day experience.

    Malaysia Valke will bring a talented and well-drilled squad to HBF Park.

    Former Wallaby Matt Hodgson, who heads up the rugby operations team at Global Rapid Rugby, said utilising the high performance and player resources of established rugby nations like South Africa to bolster local resources in emerging Asian rugby destinations has benefits for all involved.

    “There is no question about the growth potential of rugby in Asia and right from the very early stages of establishing Global Rapid Rugby we have worked hard to develop a model to unlock that potential,” Hodgson said.

    “Being able to offer support and experience through a mutually beneficial exchange is key to helping fast track rugby in these markets.”

    Spectacular off-field entertainment has also been a feature of Rapid Rugby and the final match of 2019 will again include fireworks, performers and hair-raising stunts.

    I've asked the Force membership whether our season tickets for GRR cover this game, as we originally bought the season tickets expecting 7 home games, as we've only had 5 so far.

    I'll report back when I hear something.

    I'd be very surprised if our Membership didn't cover this match.

    Not to steal the thunder from this thread, but not sure where to post this question. On GnGR they are saying the Western Force are playing Argentina in a pre-WC game. Anyone heard about this?

    Have not seen anything but Twiggy does have a very good working relationship with Agustín Pichot so it wouldn't surprise me.

    The Force website doesn't mention anything (https://www.westernforce.com.au/pert...t-rugby-feast/), but as they are going to try and get people to the match I wouldn't expect them to.

    The SBS guide only goes up to the 29th July. A month ahead of time is a bit optimistic, I think.

    Cross your fingers, and check again in a fortnight?

    Well there is no such thing as a bed time on Friday and Saturday night.
