Force lock down young guns Burey, Poolman

The Western Force are continuing to build for the future after re-signing breakout star Max Burey and George Poolman on two-year deals.

Burey became their first-choice flyhalf after a superb second-half of the season for the Force.

Splitting his time between the club and Sevens, the 24-year-old debuted against the Crusaders in round 11 before starring in their wins over the Fijian Drua and Brumbies.

He produced one of the tries of the season to finish the Super Rugby Pacific season, re-gathering what looked to be a certain 50-22, grubbering ahead before finishing off a remarkable individual effort.

As for Poolman, he has gradually emerged as a key member of their squad, one of few to feature in every game in 2023 from the bench.

He scored his first try in Super Rugby during their victory over Moana Pasifika in round three, eager to translate his debut season into a maiden start.
