More Ikeys to go West?

The Western Force have been using their defence consultants David Wessels and Kevin Foote as talent scouts, tapping into their knowledge of South African rugby.

Wessels joined the Force this season after two years with the Stormers and a season at the Brumbies.

When Wessels returned to South Africa, former Springboks sevens captain and Ikey Tigers coach Foote took over.

The franchise are waiting for the signatures of two Ikeys: tighthead prop Chris Heiberg and centre/full-back Marcel Brache, who have both been members of Stormers Super squads. Versatile Brache who was first spotted in the UCT Internal League side Nadoes has advanced to play Varsity Cup for the Tigers and has since captained the WP Vodacom Cup side and vice captained the WP Currie Cup team. 

The Force have also been able to sign Cheetahs lock Wilhelm Steenkamp, 28, because the Australian Rugby Union has relaxed restrictions on the number of overseas players that the club can sign for next season.

They can field two marquee and six development players who would become eligible for the Wallabies, an increase from one marquee and two development players.
