The Brumbies have re-signed promising lock Blake Enever until 2020.

Queenslander Enever joined the Brumbies in 2015 and has shown his potential in that time, standing out for the Vikings in the NRC.

The 25-year-old has played 10 games this season for the ACT franchise, as part of the team’s rotation policy.

“I am very happy with re-signing for the Brumbies and am looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead as a senior player in the squad,” Enever said.

“There’s a lot of exciting times ahead for the Brumbies and I am looking forward to being part of it.”

Brumbies CEO MIchael Thomson said Enever was a long-term prospect for the Canberra side.  

“We are extremely happy that Blake has decided to commit himself to the Brumbies,” he said.

“He has exactly the kind of qualities that we are looking for in a Brumby. He is young, enthusiastic and has a tremendous skill-set both at the set-piece and in the loose. His attitude is first rate and we anticipate a very exciting future for him.

“We have a well-earned reputation for giving young talent the opportunity to shine and I am sure that Blake, along with all of our other recent re-signings, will help to drive the club forward into the future.”

The Brumbies are taking on the Asia Pacific Dragons in Singapore on Thursday, kicking off at 9pm AEST, streamed LIVE at brumbiesrugby.com.au.
