Duo celebrate 50 Caps
Force duo Marcel Brache and Brynard Stander will be running out against the Hong Kong Dragons on Friday night in a monumental game to mark their 50th Western Force caps.
Marcel and Brynard debuted merely weeks apart in 2014 and have since developed a close friendship over the years.
Brynard and Marcel’s experience and charismatic personalities has made them favourites in the club, giving the entire squad that little bit more motivation to make this game a memorable one.
Marcel spoke of the opportunity to share the experience on Friday at nib stadium, where his Force career began.
“Not only I am excited that I get to share this experience with Brynard, who joined the Force at the same time as me, but with nib Stadium,” Marcel said.
“Playing my 50th game where I was fortunate enough to begin my career and to be able to share that with my friends, family and of course the fans.”
Likewise, Brynard too was excited to share the honours with longtime friend and teammate Marcel.
“It’s going to be a great experience being able to share a moment like that in your career with somebody special like Marcel, who I have been with for a long time,” Brynard said.
“It’s going to be a wonderful night.”
Coach Tim Sampson spoke about how important it was to celebrate the game and the success of Brynard and Marcel as a team.
“You know it’s fantastic to see and there are not too many milestones that have been achieved within this club being one of the younger clubs,” Tim said.
“It’s great and what’s interesting is that they debuted for the Force within two weeks of each other back in 2014 so they’re good mates and it’s great that they can share this together.”
