Scott Sio will remain with the UC Brumbies for two more seasons.

UC Brumbies prop Scott Sio will remain with the UC Brumbies for another two seasons after re-signing on Wednesday.

The news comes on the back of both Jarrad Butler and Henry Speight re-committing to the club, both for two years, to all but cement a quality line-up.

In the last month the UC Brumbies have re-signed:

• Jarrad Butler, 2 years
• Henry Speight, 2 years
• Christian Lealiifano, 2 years
• Matt Toomua, 2 years
• Nic White, 2 years
• Jesse Mogg, 1 year
• Scott Fardy, 1 year

The youngest of the UC Brumbies prop-stocks, Sio came to Canberra on an EPS contract at the start of 2012 but has since gone on to become a regular in the UC Brumbies front row and an option for Ewen McKenzie’s Wallabies.

With four Wallabies caps and a Super Rugby Finals series under the belt, Sio boasts a wealth of experience for such a young player.

Sio said becoming a better prop was one of the major reasons behind him re-signing with the UC Brumbies.

“With Ben Alexander and Stephen Moore here, I really couldn’t ask for a better place to be for the next two seasons,” Sio said.

“Already they’ve had a huge impact on my own career and along with Laurie Fisher and Dan McKellar, I think they provide me with everything I need to become a much better player.

“When I got here I’d only just started playing prop – I was still tossing up whether or not I should have a crack at hooker. I grew up playing No.8 and a bit of flanker, so I was certainly pretty raw in terms of rugby knowledge.

“But I feel comfortable in the front row now, particularly at loose-head. It’s where I feel I can keep improving and have the biggest impact for the team moving forward.”

The son of former Samoan international prop, David Sio, Scott comes from a proven bloodline of quality rugby players.
