In recent history, the Australian Rugby Union changed the rules to allow foreign players and developing foreign players to join Australian teams in the Super Competition.
The long trip with the Western Force to South Africa found us in a new country, new time zone, and with a different currency.
Being a sportsman provides the opportunity to influence others and have a voice that is heard more widely than many in society. For better or worse what we say and do will reach more people through media coverage, articles written, tweets, blogs and websites.
As we enter the fifth week of Super Rugby we find ourselves packing our bags again and heading to the airport for another leg of the competition. We have already racked up 22,653 kilometres flying distance, and it is only week five.

It is the Western Force’s first ever change of guard, with the announcement that David Pocock will replace Nathan Sharpe as captain for 2012.
