The Western Force are set to unveil former Highlanders and Hurricanes centre Jayden Hayward as their latest  signing.

Hayward, 25, will join the Force as their second overseas  development player on a two-year deal.

Former Cheetahs flyhalf Sias Ebersohn is the Force's other  development player, while All Blacks scrumhalf Alby Mathewson is  their marquee signing.

Hayward's arrival completes the Force's 30-man roster, although  one more player will be signed to their extended playing squad of  five.

The Force will employ a revamped backline in 2013 after signing  Ebersohn, Hayward, Mathewson, Junior Rasolea, Sam Norton-Knight, Ed  Stubbs and Chris Tuatara-Morrison during the off-season.

What do you make of the Blues signing Jimmy Cowan?

It's a great move. His experience is needed.

The jury's still out for me. Let's wait and see.

It's a desperate move. Respectfully, Cowan is past it.

The Blues have bigger worries than halfback.
