SA-born flanker signs with Force
South Africa-born flanker Chris Alcock has switched Super Rugby sides -moving to the Western Force from the New South Wales Waratahs.
The Force said on Wednesday that the 24-year-old Alcock, born in Durban, had signed a two-year deal.
The openside flanker played 25 matches for the Waratahs since making his provincial debut against the Cheetahs two years ago, after he was taken from Sydney grade rugby for the beginning of the 2010 season.
Alcock, who played 12 matches in 2012, starting in the No 7 jersey for the bulk of the season, follows former Waratahs coach Michael Foley west to Perth for the 2013 season.
