Perth - Former All Blacks flyhalf David Hill is set to join the injury-ravaged Western Force Super 14 team, local media reported on Monday.

Hill, who made one Test appearance as a replacement for the All Blacks in 2006, has joined the Perth-based franchise from Japanese club Toshiba, Australian Associated Press reported.

He will replace former Springbok flyhalf Andre Pretorius, who tore his hamstring and was ruled out for the season before it began.

The Force have already lost several other front-line players, in centre Ryan Cross (shoulder), wing Cameron Shepherd (thigh, six weeks), and loose forwards David Pocock (finger, six weeks) and Richard Brown (shoulder, six weeks), this season.

The Force host New Zealand's Chiefs in the third round of this year's Super 14 on Saturday, after losing their opening two matches to the Brumbies (24-15) and the Hurricanes (47-22).
