Cape Town - The Western Force have announced the signing of South African defence consultant David Wessels ahead of the 2013 Super Rugby season.

According to the Planet Rugby website, Wessels previously held the same position with the Stormers (2008-09) and the Brumbies last season during which Jake White's Brumbies conceded the fewest points in the Australian Conference and the second least in the Super Rugby competition.

Wessels has also held the role of assistant coach for Ikeys in the Varsity Cup for three seasons.

Wessels joins Force coach Michael Foley on a coaching panel that already features former Bath coach Steve Meehan (Backs/Attack Coach), two-time Rugby World Cup-winning strategist Phillip Fowler (Rugby Strategist) and former Wallaby front-rower and incumbent Forwards Coach, Nick Stiles.

Cheetahs flyhalf Sias Ebersohn will represent the Force in next year's Super Rugby tournament, which they will open against the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth.
