The Western Force have attracted another South African to get involved with their team ahead of the 2014 Super Rugby season, or so it seems.
Reports doing the rounds indicate that former South African and Australian cricket coach, Mickey Arthur, is in talks with the Force to join the coaching staff. The capacity of such an appointment is still unknown, but Arthur has already been instrumental for his potential employees.
Arthur is said to have been involved in Sias Ebersohn’s move from the Cheetahs last year, and would like to join the Western Australian team by helping them with any other recruitment from South Africa.
After Arthur’s sacking as Australian cricket coach, he has made it clear that he would not like to leave Perth, and this along with his ties with Froce coach Michael Foley, could see Arthur make the switch from cricket to rugby, and we could see the Force signing even more South African based playersTweet
