Transfer News: Giant Wallaby lock set to move to Europe

Wallabies and Brumbies lock Rory Arnold has announced that he will sign for French club Toulouse after the end of the 2019 Super Rugby Season.

Arnold, who has nineteen caps for his country and is expected to push for a place at the Rugby World Cup in Japan this season, has been an integral part of the Brumbies since joining the club in 2015.

Once the tallest player in Super Rugby, the hulking 2.08m forward made his Brumbies debut in the season-opening 47-3 hammering of the Reds back in 2015 and has since been a mainstay of the team as they push towards a third Super Rugby crown.

“Rory has the made the decision that he feels is best for the longevity of his rugby career,” Brumbies CEO Phil Thomson commented.

“We would like to extend our best wishes to Rory and thank him for his commitment to the Brumbies for the past four seasons. We are looking forward to him performing strongly for us during the 2019 Super Rugby season.”

“We have no doubt that Rory will put in his usual dedicated and high-energy displays this season as part of Dan McKellar’s continuing evolution of the Brumbies playing style.”
