Canberra Super Rugby franchise the Brumbies have signed winger Andrew Muirhead on a one-year deal for the 2018 Super Rugby season.
Muirhead, who made his debut for the club during their tour of South Africa and Argentina in 2017 and made an instant impact with a brace of tries off the bench in Buenos Aires, put pen to paper on his twelve-month deal to stay with the club.
Enjoying an excellent season with his club side, Canberra Royals, Muirhead arrived in Canberra from Brisbane to attempt to break into the Super Rugby competition and, when he took to the field as a late replacement for Henry Speight against the Kings in Port Elizabeth, he realised his dream.
“It was fantastic to make my Super Rugby debut for the Brumbies in South Africa and then to come off the bench and get some good minutes under my belt in Argentina was amazing,” Muirhead said.
“To get on the field in Super Rugby was one of my main ambitions but now that I have had the opportunity I am aiming to get into the team on a regular basis.
“I would like to thank the Brumbies for showing their faith in me to give me that chance.”
