Australian Schoolboy’s scrumhalf Lachlan Albert has signed with the Brumbies, agreeing to a three-year commitment to the club starting in November 2019.
Albert, who was part of the Australian Schools team that toured the United Kingdom in late 2018 alongside another Brumbies signing in Reesjan Pasitoa, is currently studying at Riverview College in Sydney before coming to Canberra.
The highly-regarded scrumhalf will be involved in the Brumbies pre-season training program which commences mid-November as part of the Brumbies Development Program.
“I’m so excited by the prospect of moving to Canberra to join the Brumbies,” Albert said of his signing. “It has been a dream of mine to be given an opportunity like this and it’s humbling to know that the Brumbies are supporting me in working towards becoming the best player I can be.
“After watching the Brumbies campaign this year and becoming familiar with the positive environment they have created, it clearly speaks for itself, and I am beyond excited that I get to grow as a rugby player and a person with them.”
Brumbies General Manager, Professional Rugby & Pathways, Chris Tindall welcomed Albert joining the Brumbies. “Our coaches were very impressed by Lachlan both in his playing ability potential and his character in his desire to learn and drive to work hard to be the best he can be.
“We are pleased to have Lachlan join our Brumbies Academy Development Programme to work with him, along with our local Academy players, to help them develop towards playing Super Rugby with the Brumbies and for the Wallabies.”
