The Brumbies have signed Waratahs flanker Will Miller to replace David Pocock, who is retiring from Australian rugby.
The Brumbies have signed NSW Waratahs flanker Will Miller on a two-year deal as they prepare for Super Rugby life without David Pocock.
Miller is a highly regarded backrower but has been stuck behind Wallabies and Waratahs skipper Michael Hooper for the past two years.
The 26-year-old made his Super Rugby debut for the Melbourne Rebels in 2017 before moving to Sydney and heads to Canberra with Pocock retiring from Australian rugby.
“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.”
Brumbies coach Dan McKellar said he was keen to sign a pilferer to try and replace Pocock’s immense presence at the breakdown.
“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,” McKellar said.
“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.”
