FORCE BACKLINE DEEP FOR 2015 SEASON AND BEYOND
The Western Force has today announced the signing of backline players Albert Nikoro and Tino Nemani.
These two players will add depth to an already outstanding backline of Luke Morohan, Marcel Brache, Patrick Dellit, Kyle Godwin and Dane Haylett-Petty.
The addition of the two talented New Zealand born players will help the backline in situations where it may have struggled last year, such as injury and tired legs throughout the season and extensive travel to South Africa and New Zealand.
Last year, injuries to Junior Rasolea and Luke Morohan stopped the Force backline from generating offense during the late stages of the season. Their defence was able to travel.
Albert Nikoro will especially be able to help the backline through his utility back style of play. He is able to dress at wing, fullback and outside centre, which could help the squad, as the season gets tougher.
The pair have signed for two seasons, giving them plenty of time to develop and help the Force secure their maiden Super Rugby playoff berth.
