Nic White mark for Brumbies and Wallabies rugby by the end of 2023

Nick White is in the box seat to cement his place as Australia’s first choice No. 9 after signing an extension with Brumbis and Wallabies by the end of next year.

White said it was a long process to decide on a proposal from Japan but he felt he always wanted to be committed to Australian rugby with the World Cup by the end of next year.

The 31-year-old has already gained experience playing abroad – returning to Australian rugby in 2020 in France and England.

White has played in the 20198 Rugby World Cup and his experience will be a big boost for Dave Rainey’s team. Although many believe the Reds’ scrum half Tate McDermott is a superior running back, White’s passing and overall excellence puts him ahead of Renee.

White has played 94 times for Brumbis and played 48 Test caps.

“Brumbis is my home, I love the club and my focus is now on the Blues this Saturday and the exciting challenges ahead of us,” White said in a statement.

Renee said: “Nick is one of the best halfbacks in the world and rebuilding him in Australian rugby is a huge positive for Wallace and Brumbeys.

“She has amazing work ethic, she has high expectations of herself and demands the same from those around her.

“White is a top man, his competition is contagious and he’s playing under the house right now.”

Brumbis head coach Dan McKeller was equally happy.

“Everyone at Brumbis is excited to have White at a club, which obviously means a lot to her and her family,” McClellan said.

“We need world-class players in your team to compete at the top level and we talk a lot about whites in that bracket.

“With his professionalism and dedication, he has got a lot more to give to the game and he will be a key player for Brumbis as long as he wears ACT colors.”
