    Ebersohn sent packing from Perth

    2015-06-29 11:25

    Perth - The Western Force have released flyhalf Sias Ebersohn from his contract, allowing him to return to his native South Africa.

    The 26-year-old, who joined the Force from the Bloemfontein-based Cheetahs ahead of the 2013 Super Rugby season, played 43 matches - scoring 212 points - across his three seasons for the Western Australian franchise.

    Ebersohn made a strong contribution to the Force over the past three seasons, including playing a key role during their most successful season in 2014.

    But he underperformed in 2015, with the Force opting to let him go.

    The Force said on their official website that they have identified the need to inject additional experience into their young backline.

    “Having already signed Jono Lance for next season, the Force are currently in the process of recruiting players that will provide the team with that experience. On behalf of the club, we’d like to thank Sias for his contribution to the Force, and wish he and wife Elette all the best for the future,” read a statement from the Force.
