The Brumbies have confirmed that experienced centre Tevita Kuridrani will depart the club to join the Western Force for the 2021 season.
The powerhouse was a long-term target for Sale before they signed Manu Tuilagi while Harlequins were also reportedly interested.
Kuridrani joined the Brumbies in 2012 as a wing who was overlooked elsewhere, and quickly became one of the best outside centres in the world, scoring 28 tries in his 135 appearances in Brumbies colours.
Kuridrani said: “It has been a true honour to play for the Brumbies, a club that gave me a chance to play Super Rugby, and to live out my dreams.
“Leaving my family in Queensland to come to Canberra was difficult, but I can honestly say it was the best decision I ever made.
“I will cherish the memories I’ve made at this club forever, and I just want to thanks everyone who has made my journey with the Brumbies so special, not least the Canberra community who always made we feel at home here.
“While I’m sad to be leaving the club, I feel the time is right for me in my career to have a fresh challenge and I’m excited for my new opportunity with the Western Force.”
