Adele, Aerosmith, John Farnham and now Miley Cyrus.
Shortly after their belting 28-3 win over Melbourne on Saturday night, the boys celebrated by belting out a passionate rendition of ‘Wrecking Ball’ in the changerooms.
And so the tradition lives on! 🎶 (Make sure you watch it till the end, they really come in like a Wrecking Ball 😉)#REBvFOR #ForceForever #LevelUp #SuperRugbyPacific #SuperRugby #SuperRugbybackinWA @MileyCyrus pic.twitter.com/h91dgmg3ya

Clairsy & Lisa asked Vice Captain Kyle Godwin on Tuesday, who explained that it was a club tradition after a win and the song is decided by the club’s song master. You read that right.
Godwin really wants Tribute by Tenacious D to get a run and, honestly, we couldn’t possibly get behind that more.
With the Reds coming up on Friday night, we’ll be ready to hear another classic track from the Force. In the meantime, here’s some more to get us hyped…
Wrap from Saturday night’s win against Rebels
Force’s thumping 28-3 win over Melbourne, taking the line on to set up an early second-half try that deflated the Rebels in their return to AAMI Park on Saturday night.
Western Force have left Melbourne as the only winless Australian Super Rugby Pacific team, securing a 28-3 win in a disappointing homecoming for the Rebels.
Western Force thumped it in on Saturday night, ruining the Rebels’ first home game in 287 days.
The Rebels had been looking to rebound from a heavy opening loss to the Queensland Reds but were no match for the Force who snatched a 28-3 win at AAMI Park.
The Force led 13-3 at halftime and that was blown out just two minutes into the second half as the Force took advantage of Melbourne losing Reece Hodge to a yellow card.
The Wallabies utility was sent for a stint on the sidelines for a cynical foul after he slapped the ball away from Reesjan Pasitoa following a break by the young Force playmaker.
Our mate Kyle Godwin then dotted down following a dominant Force scrum and with Ian Prior adding the extras the visitors had a commanding 17-point lead.
Further souring the Rebels’ night, Hodge was then given his marching orders in the 76th minute when he was pinged for a deliberate knockdown, with two yellow cards equating to red.
