This change will be a huge development for my personal growth," Spink said in a statement."The opportunity to play in the Super Rugby competition and play against Australian and New Zealand teams along with the pacific national teams is definitely a season to be excited about."With Simon working under Steve Hansen in Japan, that influence is incredible to learn from, and I can't wait to meet him and the coaches and start improving my game."It's a challenge; Super Rugby is something I never thought I would get the opportunity to play in; it's a different style and brand of rugby, a lot quicker, it's more attacking and flowing rugby. The age profile of the group looks quite exciting, being 23 I think I'll fit in comfortably with the squad and the combinations already formed."It comes as the club also confirm the signing of prop Wilton Rebolo, the first Brazilian to join a Super Rugby club.The 27-year-old tight-head prop joins from Major League Rugby side United Rugby New York, representing Brazil on 33 occasions."It has always been my dream to play in Super Rugby; my teammates from Brazil all have this dream. The Force is a great team, and I feel lucky to have been given this opportunity," Rebolo believes. "I am excited to play and will bring a lot of enthusiasm. I am a big enforcer at scrum time and can't wait to learn from Simon, especially in strategic game play."I think I will gain a lot of experience at the Force; this will progress my level within the Brazilian team and significantly increase the quality of my game." Force head coach Simon Cron was excited by the pair of signings as they look to build for the future.“Sam (Spark) is a big body, he is extremely explosive and a good ball carrier,” Cron added. “For us he brings a level of experience at a young age that we think will be extremely beneficial for our squad.“Wilton is fast, explosive and brings a great deal of size to the squad. He is defensively strong and in attack he has really good feet. The biggest thing for us is to capitalise on his strengths and help him improve in the areas of set piece as he starts to push several players in the squad for a starting spot.“One of the things we need in our squad is what we would call ‘street fighters’, so we need guys that are going into contact drills hard and continuously hit hard, he is obviously one of those players.”Click Here: Jadon Sancho jersey sale
