Update: The following statement was provided to media outlets today in relation to a proposed 2020 domestic rugby competition. Force fans and members will be provided news of any developments as soon as possible.
In response to a number of recent reports surrounding the Western Force’s return to a proposed Australian domestic rugby competition this year, Global Rapid Rugby (GRR) Chief Executive Mark Evans has made the following statement.
“GRR has not to date received a formal invitation for participation of the Western Force in any proposed 2020 Australian domestic competition. There may be some interest on our part, but to suggest that the Western Force has agreed to participate is inaccurate.
Until any invitation, with full details of the competition arrangements, is forthcoming and has been agreed to by GRR, we will continue to review a range of playing options for the remainder of 2020 and beyond.”
