    Cape Town - Australian Super Rugby outfit, the Force, are eager to lure more Western Province players to Perth for next season.

    They recently signed WP centre Marcel Brache and prop Chris Heiberg as part of their renewed focus on developing alternate avenues for selecting players.

    According to Die Burger's website, the Australians are now also after promising youngsters, fullback/flyhalf Dillyn Leyds and prop Francois van Wyk.

    Kevin Foote, a former Ikeys coach who will be assistant coach at the Force next year, confirmed that they have offered the WP duo contracts. Leyds - a former Baby Bok - is currently part of the WP Under-21 side, while Van Wyk was part of WP's Vodacom Cup squad earlier this year.

    Foote said the offers are only for one year. "It's a very good opportunity for them. They could always return," said Foote.

    The Force also have South Africans, Sias Ebersohn (flyhalf) and Wilhelm Steenkamp (lock), on their books.
