Pre-season trial match cancelled

The Western Force’s pre-season trial match against the Fijian Drua scheduled for this Sunday has been cancelled.

The match, which was set to be played in Ballina, New South Wales, will no longer go ahead due to the updated border restrictions for Western Australia.

Force chief executive officer Tony Lewis said the decision has been made to protect the wellbeing of the players, coaches and staff.

“We are very disappointed to not be playing Fijian Drua this weekend,” Lewis said.

“The recent announcement regarding the movement in and out of Western Australia is something we have no control over and we will not be putting our players and their families in a position of uncertainty around returning home. “We are continuing to work closely with the government to ensure we deliver seven home games this season and gain further clarity on the situation.”
