• Sias stays put in Perth

    Former Cheetahs flyhalf Sias Ebersohn has extended his contract with the Western Force until 2017.

    The 25-year-old has played 29 matches for the Force over the past two seasons, and will become eligible for Wallabies selection at the end of 2015.

    'When I came here two years ago, it was an exciting new adventure for my wife and me,' said Ebersohn. '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.'
