Brumbies academy duo make step up

“This is the next step on my journey to become a rugby player and I am grateful to the Brumbies for giving me a chance.”

The Brumbies management certainly believe that the pair have what it takes to make it at the top level and to become an integral part of the Brumbies family.

“The signing of both Darcy and Mack will continue the fine tradition we have here at the Brumbies of giving young players the chance to shine at the top level of the sport,” Brumbies CEO Michael Thomson commented.

“The Brumbies have often been the starting point for young talent to carve a great career in the game, both domestically and internationally, and we have been pleased with the way that the duo has progressed through the under-20 program.

“Our coaching staff work extremely hard with our younger age groups in an effort to prepare them for life in Super Rugby and Dan [McKellar] and Stephen [Larkham] had no hesitation in bringing in a number of these young players in pre-season last year.

“It’s a part of our culture that we embrace and something we will aim to continue to do.”
