Nic White to Captain Brumbies against Rebels


Nic White will become the 12th Brumbies Captain this Friday night when the Rebels visit Canberra Stadium. With Ben Mowen on duty for the Wallabies, White has been handed the Captaincy from Head Coach, Jake White.

Now in his third season of top-grade rugby, having made his debuts against the Reds in 2011, White brings energy, experience and enthusiasm to the role. At 22, White is the youngest Brumbies skipper to land the position but already displays leadership qualities that have seen him cement the starting nine with the ACT based club.

Closing on 30 caps at Super Rugby level, White's first appearance at Canberra Stadium was this corresponding fixture in 2011.
