Turning point

Aap
Wednesday, March 26, 2014

PERTH - When Western Force players need a dose of inspiration during a game, they just take a quick look at skipper Matt Hodgson.

Hodgson has been at the club since their inception, meaning he has experienced plenty of lows over the past eight years.

He was there when the Firepower collapse cost players six-figure sums.

He experienced the 2008 player revolt against then-coach John Mitchell and the subsequent departure of a host of stars.

And then there's been the woeful on-field fortunes — eight straight years without a finals berth.

But 2014 is shaping as a turning point for the Perth-based franchise, with a three-game winning streak lifting the Force to within two points of third spot.
