Staniforth to stay with Western Force

Former Wallaby Scott Staniforth revealed he seriously considered making the switch to the NSW Waratahs before re-signing with the Western Force for the 2011 Super 15 season.

Staniforth, who returned to the Force early last season after a short stint in Japan, started his Super rugby career at the Waratahs and said he was tempted to return to NSW after receiving an offer from his old club.

"Definitely with family back in Sydney and the coaching structure there (at the Waratahs) was where I started out in my club football so there was a strong pull there," Staniforth said.

"But we decided to stay.

"There was a lot of factors actually (in deciding to stay in Perth).

"There was football, family and life after rugby.

"You can't get rid of me. I tried to leave a couple of times but no, I'm having one more run around."

Staniforth's decision to stay is a major boost for the Force, who have already lost outside centre Ryan Cross to the Waratahs.
