Australian forward Scott Fardy has confirmed he will join Leinster next season
The veteran has signed a two-year deal to base himself in Dublin
Fardy hasn’t given up hope of playing in the 2019 World Cup.
ACT Brumbies flanker Scott Fardy will leave Canberra at the end of the season after agreeing to a two-year deal with Irish giant Leinster.
The 32-year-old, who has played 19 times for the Wallabies, is believed to have agreed a two-year deal with the province, which would make him eligible to play in the 2019 World Cup if he then returns to Australia.
“It’s still a big year ahead at the Brumbies and I’m looking forward to the season ahead in Canberra,” Fardy told the Canberra Times.
“I’m also excited about the chance to join Leinster next season. But I’ve got a lot that I want to achieve at the Brumbies and it should be a great year with the boys.”
The Brumbies began their Super Rugby campaign with a 17-13 defeat against Crusaders last weekend.
