Dave Wessels has made his first appointment since being named Western Force coach, luring Ulster assistant Joe Barakat to the Perth-based Super Rugby franchise.

Barakat has been an assistant coach at Ulster for the past two seasons, with his primary responsibility being in defensive strategy and the contact zone.

He previously coached at the NSW Waratahs in Sydney, and he also had a five-year spell in Japan.
