Brumbies have confirmed that lock Cadeyrn Neville has penned a new deal with the Super Rugby club at least until the end of the 2022 season.

Neville started his Super Rugby career with Rebels in 2012 and switched to Queensland Reds ahead of the 2016 season and has played 63 games for the two clubs combined.

He was part of Japanese Top League for three years and returned back to Super Rugby when he joined Brumbies ahead of the 2020 season.

"I feel like I've only just started scratching the surface here, so I'm really excited to see what the team can achieve here over the next couple of years," said the 31-year-old to the club's official website.

"Having been away for a few years, it’s been nice to be home in Australia and my family and I have settled into life in Canberra really well.

"I've been really impressed with everyone in the organisation and I believe we're capable of some really good things, which made it an easy decision to stay."

Brumbies coach Dan McKellar expressed delight in retaining the services of the 6ft 7in lock at least for the next two seasons.

"Keeping Cadeyrn at the club was a top priority for us so we’re delighted he’ll be sticking around," he said.

"He was outstanding for us this season pre-COVID, particularly that last game against the Waratahs where you could tell he was getting comfortable within our structures."

Brumbies hold the top place in Super Rugby AU with five wins from six games and will face Western Force in the ninth round at GIO Stadium on 28th August.
