Score for state premier clubs
STATE premier grade rugby union clubs will be boosted by a spread of 2018 Western Force players, as part of a club allocation program.
The Force were booted from the Super Rugby competition after the Australian Rugby Union resolved to discontinue its license last August.
The club lost its Supreme Court appeal in September.
Players will now be distributed across 13 premiership clubs in WA, with some players maintaining links to clubs they had previously been part of.
Kalamunda will add Masivesi Dakuwaqa and Perth Bayswater will welcome newcomer Harry Lloyd and Johan Bardoul to its list this year.
Maintaining old ties, Brad Lacey and Aj Alatimu will continue to run out for Wests Scarborough.
Nedlands captain Tevin Ferris remains at the Foreshore, while UWA 2014 premiership-winning forwards Harry Scoble and Chris Alcock will make a return to the club.
Rockingham product Kieran Longbottom returns home to join the newly amalgamated Coastal Cavaliers.
RugbyWA chief executive Bob Hunter said the player allocation would foster junior rugby, support teams at all levels and ensure the Force players maintained strong connections with the community.
Force head of elite performance Matt Hodgson said the program would have a positive impact on the players and the clubs.
