BIO

Henry Speight has fast become one of, if not the best, outside back in the world.

Now a member of the Wallabies 2015 Rugby World Cup squad, Speight has signed a new three-year deal with the Brumbies which is sure to delight fans far and wide.

2016 poses as a year to remember for Speight who’s new contract will allow him to potentially play for the Australian 7’s side at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Since 2011 the Fijian Flyer has captivated audiences with his magical left-right steps, awesome fend and hard running style. More impressively, he continues to build on his already robust defensive game to prove that he is one of the most reliable Brumbies players in all facets of the game.

The former ‘Bro with the Fro’ is a crowd favorite and is constantly found, post-game, as the last player out on the pitch signing autographs and taking photos with the fans. His work off of the pitch and within the community continues to boost his popularity amongst his fellow Canberrans; most recently with Henry shaving his afro for a local Fijian foundation, Walk On Walk Strong, raising over $30,000 for children with cancer.

Silky, as he is known in the sheds, has accelerated in leaps and bounds since moving from Waikato, in the ITM Cup. As the top Australian conference try-scorer in 2012 and 2013 only injury halted his impressive Super Rugby form in the 2014 season. Suffering a broken jaw against the Waratahs was a minor set-back for Henry, though he came back with some blistering performances towards the season’s end.

Unfortunately due to visa ineligibility issues over Henry’s involvement in the ITM Cup, it was a long wait for his Green & Gold debut.
