Perth - Flyhalf Sias Ebersohn has extended his stay with the Western Force after recommitting to the Western Australian franshise for a further three seasons.

South African-born Ebersohn joined the Force from the Cheetahs for the 2013 Super Rugby season.

The 25-year-old has played 29 matches for the Force, combining with the 30 he played for the Cheetahs between 2010 and 2012.

Speaking to the Force’s official website, Ebersohn said he’s pleased to stay in Perth for an extended period.

“When I came here two years ago, it was an exciting new adventure for my wife and me. Now, Perth feels like home; I love living here, my wife loves it here and I love playing with these guys at the Force. We have fantastic supporters at the Force too and it’s special to be able to play for them and in front of them, particularly at home.

“We had a good season this year but we all feel like there’s unfinished business and room for improvement. Everyone’s hungry to get stuck in and play for each other again, which is one of the best things about playing with this bunch of guys.”
