Scottish-born lock or flanker Murray Douglas arrives at the Brumbies for the 2019 Super Rugby season having played a major role in the Hurricanes run to the semi-finals of the competition last year. The combative Douglas began his Super Rugby career in Melbourne with the Rebels making three appearances for the Victorian club in 2017 following his debut against the Chiefs. His switch to the Hurricanes for 2018 showed his versatility as he became a go-to player off the bench for Chris Boyd in his final season at the helm of the Wellington franchise. Comfortable with ball in hand, Douglas likes to take the game to the opposition and is a physical presence in, and around, the breakdown. At 1.98m and 115kg Douglas, who counts Edinburgh and Melbourne Rising amongst his former clubs, adds considerable height and bulk to the line-out and is an effective option at the set-piece. He is all set for a stellar first year in Brumbies colours.
