The Western Force have secured the signing of former Australia Under-20s scrum-half Ian Prior from the Brumbies.

Prior, who has previously had a spell at the Reds, has agreed a two-year deal to move to Perth at the end of the current campaign.

And the 22-year-old, who has made 25 Super Rugby appearances in total, is looking forward to the move.

"I was really excited to sign with the Force and be a part of an up-and-coming team," he told the official Force site.

"When I came to the Brumbies they were in a similar position and I've always enjoyed the challenge of contributing to an always-improving team.

"I spoke to Luke Morahan in depth and we had similar views on contributing to a young and up-and-coming team and helping contribute to a winning culture based on our experiences.

"Based on their performances this season, the Force is heading in the right direction; they're building the right culture under Michael Foley and that really appealed to me. They're playing a positive brand of footy this season which is great to see as a player joining the side next year."
