Western Force name squad to tour South Africa

Perth based Super Rugby franchise the Western Force have named their 28-man travelling squad for the two-match South African leg of the Super Rugby competition.

Flanker Angus Cottrell (ankle), fullback Dane Haylett-Petty (foot) and winger Luke Morahan (hamstring) are set to make their returns from injury and will travel to ‘the Republic’ with the 23 players involved in last night’s match against the Melbourne Rebels.

Lock Wilhelm Steenkamp, who started off the bench in last Friday’s match against the Brumbies, has been selected in the Force squad, as has Greater Sydney Rams prop Guy Millar, who will provide additional coverage in the front row following Francois van Wyk’s season-ending pectoral injury suffered against the Queensland Reds a fortnight ago.

Haylett-Petty has been absent from the Force line-up since their Week One win over the NSW Waratahs, while Cottrell and Morahan sustained their injuries against the Reds and Brumbies respectively.
