Scrumhalf Ryan Lonergan is set to take the next step in his rugby journey as he puts pressure on the current incumbent of the number nine shirt Joe Powell ahead of the 2020 season.
The older Lonergan, his younger brother Lachlan recently joined him in the Brumbies senior squad, enjoyed an excellent 2019 National Rugby Championship campaign, kicking well from the tee and following on from a magnificent Griffin Legal John I Dent Cup with the Tuggeranong Vikings.
His goalkicking ability is well-known, he strikes the ball sweetly from the tee and out of hand, and that is an added bow to an all-round scrumhalf game that is improving year on year.
Lonergan kicked his first Super Rugby points in 2019, a conversion against the Reds at GIO Stadium, one of five appearances he made as the team reached the semi-finals.
Highly regarded, Lonergan could well be set for a breakthrough year at Super Rugby level should his rapid ascent continue.
