Western Force have announced the signing of Australia international Nic White on a two-year contract.

White made his professional rugby debut with Brumbies in 2011 and had racked up over 100 Super Rugby appearances for the club spread across two stints. He was part of the Brumbies squad that went on to win the Super Rugby AU title in 2020.

He also had stints with Montpellier and Exeter Chiefs between 2015 and 2020.

The 32-year-old's debut for the Wallabies came in 2013 against New Zealand in Sydney and has 59 Test caps to his name. He was also part of Australia's 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign.

"This is an awesome opportunity for myself and my family. I am thrilled to stay in Australian Rugby and play for the Force next season," White told the club's official website.

"I am really looking forward to coming over and being a part of the hard working environment Simon [Cron] has created. The club is moving in the right direction, and I can't wait to be a part of it.

"What I feel like I can bring to the Force is my experience. I've been to three clubs now, Montpellier, Exeter and Brumbies and have tasted success at all three, so I feel like I have a fairly good understanding of what success looks like and how much hard work goes into building a successful club and culture."
