SANZAAR have reportedly proposed a new structure which does not include the Perth based team.

News Limited report competition will be reduced to 15 teams with SANZAAR due to make a decision by April 6.

The Southern Kings and either the Cheetahs or Lions are also set to be scalped.

The Force have come out firing in response to the reports, however, the writing is believed to be on the wall.

"Under no circumstances do we believe today's speculation around the future of the Western Force to be true," the statement read.

"Two and half weeks ago, through a national phone link-up all clubs were told that the ARU through the governing body, SANZAAR was investigating a number of issues and those issues had to be resolved prior to a decision being made to reduce any of the Australian franchises.

"There has been no further contact from the Australian Rugby Union to any of the Western Force players or staff, so at this time there is no further comment on the matter until substantiated facts are put forward."
