Brumbies have confirmed that Australia international Joe Powell has penned a new deal with the Super Rugby club.

The 24-year-old made his debut with Canberra Vikings and made his Super Rugby debut for Brumbies in 2015. His breakthrough season though came in 2017 when Brumbies went on to claim the Australian Conference title.

“I am extremely happy to have signed for a further two years for the Plus500 Brumbies,” Powell told the Brumbies’ official website.

“This club gave me my start in Super Rugby and I have thoroughly enjoyed playing in Canberra for the past four seasons. The atmosphere around the club is fantastic and we have a great group of young and hungry players.

“I am looking forward to helping the club push forward in our aim to claim another Super Rugby title.”

The success in the 2017 season also saw him earn a call-up to Australia squad and his debut came against Fiji in Melbourne in June and has played four Tests until now including the recently concluded third Test against Ireland in Sydney.

“It’s great news that Joe has re-signed with the Brumbies,” said Brumbies head coach Dan McKellar.

“He has come through our pathways system, has been a contracted player for a number of years and is now a Wallaby and he’s just getting better and better every week.

“He’s working hard on his game and still has a way to go to reach his full potential but one thing with Joe is he’ll never let you down in terms of effort and attitude. It’s great to have him here for the next two years and hopefully for a long time after that.”
