Ryan Louwrens returns for his third year with the Force following a breakout season in 2015. After the heartbreak of rupturing his ACLt which ended his 2014 campaign, Louwrens made the most of his opportunities last season. Waiting patiently for his chance, Louwrens made his Super Rugby debut off the bench against the Chiefs in Hamilton. The South African born scrumhalf tallied seven caps after that Round 11 debut and wasted no time getting his name on the board, scoring tries against the Blues in Auckland and in the Force’s victory over the Waratahs at nib Stadium.
