Clyde Rathbone has announced that he is staying with the ACT Brumbies.Australia winger Clyde Rathbone has announced that he will stay with the ACT Brumbies for another two seasons.
Rathbone, who skippered the South African Under-21 side, had been a target of the NSW Waratahs, Queensland Reds and new Super 14 outfit Western Force but he will continue to play in the Super 12 franchise.
The news comes as a much-needed boost to the Super 12 champions after losing scrum-half Matt Henjak and number eight Scott Fava to the Western Force and fly-half Sam Norton-Knight to the Waratahs while experienced flanker Owen Finegan has moved to Newcastle.
"The Brumbies gave me the opportunity to play rugby in Australia and provided a pathway for me to represent the Wallabies," Rathbone said.
"They have been very loyal to me and my family and by staying loyal to them I can repay them for the opportunities they have given me."
