The Force have players currently under scrutiny from the Australian Rugby Union integrity Unit after some unacceptable behaviour in their Bloemfontein hotel.

Various incidents transpired after their loss to the Cheetahs that have led the players to be investigated by the Australian body according to Mail Online.

Pekahou Cowan had the captaincy taken away from him after he was part of a group of players that were not at the team hotel before the 1am curfew.

Adam Coleman and Francois Van Wyk were squabbling loudly while, Dane and Ross Haylett-Petty were involved in some horse-play that turned sour when a vase was broken.

According to speculation a player that has yet to be named  was locked out of their room and relieved himself in the hotel corridor.

The Perth franchise has yet to drop anyone due to the transgressions but the ARU could still get further involved once it’s done with its findings.
