SLW director Leanne Willcox said she and business partner husband Shane felt great warmth meeting players and their families at last year’s jersey presentation and were thrilled to renew.

“We’re excited to extend our partnership with the Force,” Willcox said. “We felt a level of professionalism not felt before and a taste of what could be if they choose to pursue a career as a Western Force rugby player.

“Shane and I love to show up at training and games, and chat when they come up and say hello. We’re excited to see the teams reach excellence in 2024.

“Our advice to them is to stay hungry, stay humble and be the hardest worker in the team and be patient.”

Force business development manager Huw Lock said: “SLW are a fantastic local company who offer great support to WA rugby at pathway and grass roots levels, having also been a partner at Cottesloe Rugby Club.

“We’re thrilled to have them re-commit to the Force and always appreciate Shane and Leanne’s support and welcome their presence around our pathway programs for everything they stand for.”
