Foley commits to Force

Former Waratahs coach Michael Foley has signed a three-year deal with the Force.

Foley quit his head coaching post at the Waratahs on Tuesday. He has replaced Richard Graham at the Force and believes the team can improve on its mediocre record in Super Rugby, as well as its style of play.

‘While my expectations are realistic, I’m very excited about this challenge,’ Foley said. ‘It’s my role to set up a program that builds towards success. The coaching staff will be looking to promote an exciting brand of rugby that captures the imagination of our fans and wins games as well.

‘To that end, we will be looking to recruit an attacking coach with a record of producing that style of game. I want our fans to be excited about the style of footy we’re playing and keen to be a part of the club.’
