Brumbies have confirmed that flanker Jahrome Brown has signed a new two-year contract with the Super Rugby club.
Having started his career with New Zealand provincial side Waikato in 2017, the 24-year-old made a switch to Brumbies in 2019. He went on to play for the club four times in the 2021 season before a shoulder injury restricted his appearances.
He will now remain with the Canberra based club at least until the end of the 2023 season.
“I’m really happy to be staying in Canberra with the Brumbies for at least the next two years," he told the club's official website.
“The Brumbies gave me a chance coming across from New Zealand in 2018 and I’m grateful to have worn the colours and will continue to put my best foot forward for the club.
“We have a special group here where we enjoy working hard together, so being part of that every day is awesome and I’m just really excited to continue to represent the Brumbies.”
Brumbies head coach Dan McKellar is thrilled with Brown extending his stay at the club.
“We’re thrilled Jahrome will be sticking around at the Brumbies for at least the next two seasons.”
“Jahrome has become an important player in our group and while he's been unlucky with injury at times the last couple of seasons, he’s impressed when on the park and has continued to set really high standards in training.
“He’s tough, he’s physical and he has a great engine so retaining him to complement our young backrows was really important for us".
