Australia winger Clyde Rathbone has announced that he will stay with the ACT Brumbies for another two seasons.

Rathbone, who skippered the South African Under-21 side, had been a target of the NSW Waratahs, Queensland Reds and new Super 14 outfit Western Force but he will continue to play in the Super 12 franchise.

The news comes as a much-needed boost to the Super 12 champions after losing scrum-half Matt Henjak and number eight Scott Fava to the Western Force and fly-half Sam Norton-Knight to the Waratahs while experienced flanker Owen Finegan has moved to Newcastle.

"The Brumbies gave me the opportunity to play rugby in Australia and provided a pathway for me to represent the Wallabies," Rathbone said.

"They have been very loyal to me and my family and by staying loyal to them I can repay them for the opportunities they have given me."
