Lock Adam Coleman will continue to play Super Rugby for the Western Force after signing a one year contract extension with the Perth based franchise.

Coleman’s Super Rugby contract extention also includes the option to sign on further so he could continue to play for the Force for years to come.

Immediately the contract means that the 204cm second rower will remain with the club until the end of the 2017 season, as he looks to build on his solid form throughout the 2016 season and shoot for a spot in the green and gold.

The 24-year-old has been one of the Australian conference’s in-form locks, sitting third in the entire competition for lineouts won, while amassing 35 games since signing with the Force in 2014.

Coleman has typified his game style with a strong work ethic, huge defensive efforts and strong leadership.

Coleman says he is excited to re-sign with a young and improving Western Force side.

“I’m really happy to be staying on for another year,” he said. “I’m really enjoying playing Super Rugby and really enjoying my time here at the Western Force so I want to put all my time in here and make the most of it.”

With nearly three solid seasons of Super Rugby under his belt, Coleman has no hesitation to admit that a Wallaby jersey is an ambition and after being selected in the initial train-on squad for the Rugby World Cup last year, the dream isn’t out of reach.

“I’ve always got aspirations to play for the Wallabies but my main goal as it always has been is to play well for the Force and making sure we are succeeding. If I can do my job well for the Force and then Wallabies opportunities come later down the track then I’ll take it as it comes.”

Western Force Head Coach Michael Foley says that the re-signing of Coleman was a priority for the club.

“As we’ve seen over the past three years Adam has made massive progress and you have to secure talents like that early,” he said.

“The progress he has made is noticed by everybody and the fact that we’ve been able to resecure his services and have a player that has developed here and cares about the team is really important.”

“If Adam keeps playing the way he is, there’s no doubt he is an international prospect of the future.”
