Brumbies have confirmed that hooker Connal McInerney has penned a new two-year deal with the Super Rugby club.
McInerney has previously represented Canberra Vikings and New South Wales County Eagles with his Super Rugby debut for Brumbies coming during the last season where he impressed as a replacement hooker.
The 23-year-old said the decision to remain with Brumbies was straightforward as he looks to propel his career with the Canberra outfit.
“I am extremely excited about continuing my rugby career with the Brumbies in Canberra,” he said.
“I didn’t expect to play Super Rugby last season, so to get that opportunity was a bonus. It was just an incredible feeling to win my Brumbies cap at GIO Stadium and then to join up with the team for the second half of the South African tour.
“I have learned a lot of the other hookers at the club and off the senior professionals and I am looking forward to developing my game throughout my time at the Brumbies.
"It’s a great club, one that I am proud to be a part of, and I am excited about what the future holds.”
Brumbies managed a third place finish in the Australian Conference with seven wins from 16 games during the 2018 Super Rugby season.
