Rugby Australia and Brumbies Rugby are thrilled to announce the re-signing of halfback Nic White until the end of 2023.

The Brumbies take on the Blues at GIO Stadium on Saturday night. You can get your tickets here.

The 31-year-old returned to Australian rugby in 2020 after stints in France and England, playing in the 2019 Rugby World Cup before helping guide the Brumbies to a Super Rugby AU title.

Scone-born and a proud member of the Maitland Blacks and the Queanbeyan Whites, White burst onto the scene in 2012 after making his Brumbies debut in 2011, earning his first selection for the Wallabies in 2013 against New Zealand.

A pillar of professionalism at both club and international level, White has represented the Brumbies on 94 occasions to date and could reach 50 caps for the Wallabies in the upcoming England series if selected for all three tests.

Wallabies and Brumbies halfback, Nic White said: I’m really happy to be staying at the club and in Australian rugby.”

"It’s been a long process, but my goal has always been to stay at the Brumbies and to continue to earn the right play for my country.

"The Brumbies is home to me, I love the club and my focus now is fully on the Blues this Saturday and the exciting challenges we have ahead of us.”

Wallabies coach Dave Rennie said: “Nic’s one of the best halfbacks in the world and to have him recommit to Australian Rugby is a massive positive for the Wallabies and the Brumbies.”

"He has amazing work ethic, has high expectations of himself and demands the same from those around him.

"Whitey's a top man, his competitiveness is infectious and he's playing the house down at the moment."

Brumbies head coach, Dan McKellar said: “Everyone at the Brumbies is excited to have Whitey stay at a club which clearly means a lot to him and his family.”

“We talk a lot about needing world class players in your team to compete at the top level and Whitey’s in that bracket.

“With his professionalism and dedication, he’s got a lot more to give to the game and he’ll be an important player for the Brumbies for as long as he wears ACT colours.”

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.
