GLOBAL RAPID RUGBY 2020 SEASON CANCELLED
The plan for the Western Force was to tackle Hong Kong, Malaysia, Fiji, Samoa and the China Lions over 10 rounds in Global Rapid Rugby 2020, working up to a chance to play in the Grand Final at home in Perth, with a $1 Million prize pool. The Western Force recorded a strong 51-14 win over Malaysia Valke at HBF Park in Perth in their Round 1 clash on March 14. But unfortunately, the inaugural 2020 Global Rapid Rugby season came to a halt after only one round, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
While Global Rapid Rugby is cancelled for 2020, we are working behind the scenes to get the Force back on the field as soon as possible. The team are training hard at the moment – keep in touch on social media and see what the players and coaches are up to. Please watch this space, as we look forward to seeing our loyal members and fans soon again!
