The Force will take a squad full of fresh faces into their title defence at the Mauritius Tens.

Openside flanker Kane Koteka will lead a team of Pindan Premier Grade stars that have excelled in Perth's club competition this year.

Coach Kevin Foote has handpicked this team with the future of the Force in mind, as there is a crop of potential gems to be uncovered here.

“The club players have been fantastic,” Foote said.Promising Force prospect Onehunga Havili will travel to Mauritius. Photo: Getty Images“They have shown such great commitment and I am very happy with where the team is at heading into the tournament.

“We’re excited to be coming in as past champions, but we know this is going to be a tough tournament and we’re playing some classy opponents.”
