Brumbies Rugby is excited to announce winger Andy Muirhead has re-signed with the club until the end of 2024.
A star for Souths in Brisbane, Muirhead first came to the ACT to join Canberra Royals, hoping to earn an opportunity in Super Rugby, and got his first opportunity as injury cover at the end of 2017, scoring a double against the Jaguares in just his second game for the club.
Now a member of the Brumbies leadership group, and a firm fan favourite, Muirhead brought up 50 games for the club in round one this season, and incredible achievement for the proud Indigenous man.
Brumbies winger, Andy Muirhead said: “I’m truly grateful to be able to keep playing my rugby here in Canberra with the Brumbies.”
“The Canberra community have really embraced me, and the club obviously means a lot to my family and I after they gave me my chance to live out a dream to play Super Rugby.
“I want to thank Dan and the coaches for their belief in me over the years and my teammates for their support, and I look forward to giving my all in a Brumbies jersey for at least another two years.”
Brumbies head coach, Dan McKellar said: “It’s fantastic for the Brumbies to have Andy re-sign with a club which I know he cares deeply about.”
“It’s a testament to his commitment and work ethic that Andy has turned himself into a top-class professional player and a real leader in our group.
“Having his experience and leadership around Brumbies HQ will be really important for the club and he’s become a valuable member of the community so to have him sticking around is awesome.”
The Brumbies will take on the Blues in round 14 of Harvey Norman Super Rugby Pacific at GIO Stadium, Canberra on Saturday May 21 at 7.45pm AEST.
