Classy halfback signs on the dotted line in a big boost for Australian rugby.
The ACT Brumbies have received a massive off-field boost ahead of this weekend’s top-of-the-table clash in Super 15 rugby, with Nic White pledging his future to the club today.
The rising star of the game in Australia will be in the nation’s capital for the next year seasons, with his announcement set to also see him in the hunt for a spot in the Wallaby’s Rugby Championship squad.
White battled with Queensland Reds incumbent Will Genia for the national number nine jersey, and said if selected, he could not wait to get back into a side coached by Ewen McKenzie.
“My time with the Wallabies has been incredible. It’s a privilege to represent your country so to commit to two years with Australian rugby is something I’m very proud of,” White said.
“There were some good signs during last year’s Spring Tour and to be a part of that team moving forward is exciting.
“At both national and provincial level, I feel like I have more to build on and more to contribute, so staying in Australia was always the best option for me at this point in my career.”
The retention of White is further good news for the Brumbies after Matt Toomua revealed he too would be staying in the nation’s capital on Wednesday.
The Brumbies face the Sharks in a top-of-the-table Super Rugby clash on Saturday night.
