Force is with clubs

Stirling Times - - Sport -

STATE premier grade rugby union clubs are be­ing boosted by a spread of 2018 Western Force play­ers as part of a club al­lo­ca­tion pro­gram.

The Force was booted from the Su­per Rugby com­pe­ti­tion af­ter the Aus­tralian Rugby Union re­solved to dis­con­tinue its li­cence last Au­gust.

The club lost its Supreme Court ap­peal in Septem­ber.

Play­ers are distributed across 13 premier­ship clubs in WA, with some play­ers main­tain­ing links to clubs they had pre­vi­ously been part of.

Perth Bayswa­ter will add new­comer Harry Lloyd and Jo­han Bar­doul to its list this year.

Lloyd most re­cently played for the Can­berra Vik­ings in the Na­tional Rugby Cham­pi­onship, while Bar­doul will bring his Su­per Rugby ex­pe­ri­ence from the Chiefs and comes to Perth af­ter a stint in Ja­pan.
