Western Force welcome back Ian Prior

Western Force captain Ian Prior will return to his team's starting XV for Friday's Super Rugby AU clash with the Waratahs on the Gold Coast.
The inclusion of Prior, who missed the past two Super Rugby AU matches through injury, is one of seven changes - five to the starting line-up and two on the bench - from the team that faced the Melbourne Rebels two weeks ago.
The match also marks the return of Force legend Pek Cowan to the starting line-up. The 10-time-capped Wallaby prop made his 131st appearance for the club coming off the bench against the Rebels.
In a second change to the pack, Future Force Academy graduate Kane Koteka is set to make his first Super Rugby AU appearance of the season on Friday. The flanker has been brought into the starting side in place of Tevin Ferris, who remains on the injury list after leaving the field early in Round Five.

The squad can't wait to be back out there tomorrow night
