James Dargaville is happy to be back fit and running again after a shoulder reconstruction kept him out of action for more than five months.

The young wing has firmly set his sights on a solid Super Rugby campaign for the Brumbies.

“It’s been a little while since I injured my shoulder in the first round of the NRC competition last year,” Dargaville said.

It was good to get a run against the Waratahs in Mudgee and then to back that up at the Brisbane Tens a week later was fantastic."

Whilst not getting carried away at the possibility of a starting spot for the Brumbies in their season opener against the Crusaders in Christchurch, the former Vikings player is happy to play anywhere for the team.

“Just being a good Rugby player and fitting in is the most important thing. We have some great players here so if I can get a spot on the wing or anywhere else then that would be great.”

“The main focus will be to get the team in the best possible position to win games.”

“It’s a very exciting time to be a Brumby.”

The Brumbies kick off their 2017 Super Rugby home campaign against the Durban Sharks at GIO Stadium on March 4. Memberships can be purchased at www.brumbies.com.au
