Fugro-TSM is a proud Major Sponsor of the Emirates Western Force, Western Australia’s very own provincial Rugby Team competing in the southern hemisphere’s premiere rugby competition SUPER RUGBY which boasts the strongest provincial sides from Australia, New Zealand and South Africa competing with each other for honours. By supporting Rugby in Western Australia we believe we are assisting in the promotion of healthy lifestyle activities, contributing to the State tourism and the local economy and helping Western Australia forge its brand as a competitive sporting state that is “building Wallabies” to go on to represent their Country.
A three-Conference system is in place where the five teams within each country make up nationally-based Conferences and play their four “local” rivals on a home and away basis (eight games in total).
They will also play four of the other five teams in each of the other two Conferences on a home or away basis (another eight games).
This leads to an overall program of 16 games per team in the regular season, as opposed to the previous 13 – and separate Australian Conference, South African Conference and New Zealand Conference tables will chart the fortunes of teams in each country.
A three-week finals series involving six teams – as opposed to the current two-week playoffs for four teams – will further increase the length of the season.
At the end of the regular season matches, the top team in each Conference will qualify for the finals.
The other three teams to qualify will be the sides with the most number of competition points – regardless in which Conference they are based.
The Conference winners are also assured of a home finals match. Therefore, at least one finals match will be played in each country each year.
We are proud to support the Emirates Western Force in 2012 . Please join us in the “Sea of Blue” at NIB Stadium for all our home games.
