Former Australia international Clyde Rathbone is bidding to win a contract with the Brumbies for the 2013 season.
The 31-year-old retired in 2009 after a series of injuries, while the winger had also been battling against depression.
However Rathbone, who has been capped 26 times, is now training with his former club the Brumbies in a bid to claim one of the vacant spots in the back division.
An official at the Brumbies told AAP: "He's one of several players looking at filling our last few positions.
"Clyde will continue on when we get back into full pre-season training in October and see how he goes."
