The Plus500 Brumbies are delighted to officially announce that Will Miller will join the club from the NSW Waratahs having signed a 2-year contract with the club.
The backrower, who has played 34 Super Rugby matches and has claimed six tries, featured in a dozen matches for the Waratahs last season putting in some dynamic and eye-catching displays.
The Nowra-born 26-year-old had previously played for the Rebels, making his Super Rugby debut for the Melbourne-based club in their 2017 season-opener against the Sharks in Durban.
“I’m really excited to get down to Canberra and rip in,” Miller said.
“The Brumbies have had a spectacular year in 2019, and I look forward to helping build on that moving forward.”
Miller will join the Brumbies for their pre-season campaign which will begin in November this year and adds more depth to the club’s back-row stocks.
“With the departure of David Pocock, we wanted to bring in a backrower who has an on-ball presence and Will certainly will bring that,” Brumbies Head Coach Dan McKellar said of the signing.
“He is a very skilful player and a good link between the backs and forwards. He has the ability to play on an edge and he can be very creative in attack.
“Will has played a lot of rugby over the past few years and he’s played a significant role in the development of his club side Norths, helping them to a Premiership in the Shute Shield in 2016.
“He’s a good country boy who’s worked hard at club rugby to get his opportunity at Super Rugby level and has proven that he belongs at this level.”
You can catch Will in action for the Brumbies in the 2020 Super Rugby season and the best way to do so is to purchase a Plus500 Brumbies Membership.
Full membership details on the 2020 season will be available soon via the usual channels.
