Michael Foley has reportedly been dumped as coach of Super Rugby's perennially under-performing Western Force.

News Corp Australia says players have been called to a meeting at the Perth-based franchise on Thursday to inform them of the decision.

Foley is in his third season with the Force, who are last on the Australian conference and third-last overall with a 2-10 record this season.
