Having overcome a series of niggling injuries which included bulging disks in his back and a broken elbow, Conrad Hoffmann is on track to resume his professional rugby career with the University of Canberra Brumbies in 2014.
A talented scrumhalf who can pass, run and kick, Hoffmann goes head-to-head with current Wallabies scrumhalf, Nic White and fellow new recruit Michael Dowsett.
Hoffmann made his Super Rugby debut in 2011 with the Sharks in Durban after spending for years with the Stormers and Western Province. A move to the Sharks provided him with the vital breakthrough he had been looking for at Super Rugby level.
Proving the rugby world is smaller than you’d think, Hoffmann has previously played with three of the University of Canberra Brumbies players – JP and Ruan Smith in junior rugby and Matt Toomua with the Western Province in the Currie Cup in 2010.
Hoffmann brings plenty of rugby based experience to the University of Canberra Brumbies in 2014 and is likely to be a regular in the club’s match-day 22 during the 2014 Super Rugby season.
