Graham has faith in new signings

November 04, 2011 17:28:01 UK

Western Force coach Richard Graham has claimed that his current squad is the best assortment of players that the club has ever had in its entire five-year history.

The Force have had an uninspiring record in the Super Rugby so far. They have never even qualified for the finals but Graham believes that his current crop of players is fully capable of achieving glory next season. They are 5001.00 to win the Grand Final in 2012 while Crusaders are 8.00 and Reds are 5001.00.

There's no doubt at the moment we've got the strongest squad that we've had.

They have lost two major players in the 2011 post-season period, with the departures of Wallabies playmaker James O'Connor and winger David Smith. But Graham is of the opinion that the 13 new signings he has made have offset that loss.

Graham said: "I'm obviously extremely confident (of improvement). I think we'll get better results. Last year, we drew two games, we lost two games by one and lost another three by less than seven, so we're not a long way away and we've just got to believe in what we're doing."

He continued: "There are not necessarily high profile players ... but there's no doubt at the moment we've got the strongest squad that we've had."

However, he has admitted that there is a lot of work to be done on the training grounds before he can mark his players as battle-ready.
