Brumbies head coach Dan Hawke said: "It's exciting for us to be able to confirm our squad for the 2021 season."

"We're happy with the makeup of the group, with the experience we have and also the youth, we feel we can grow into the year. 

"There's plenty of players in the squad who will be pushing for higher honours and that all starts with this team, this group and we can't wait to get started."
