BIO

One of Australian Rugby’s brightest young stars, Joe Powell had a breakout year in 2017 with the Brumbies and Wallabies.

A Canberra local who attended Marist College, Powell represented the Australian U20’s in 2014, establishing himself as their first-choice scrumhalf for the Junior World Cup in New Zealand and earning plaudits for his performances throughout the tournament.

Powell burst on to the scene with Brumbies in 2015 after being signed on a short-term contract to cover for an injury to Nic White. The scrumhalf made his debut against the Rebels that year to become Brumby #178.

In 2016 Powell was signed to a fulltime EPS contract prior to the with the Brumbies, impressing enough in limited action to receive a call up to the Wallabies squad for the June test series.

Powell stepped up to the starting scrumhalf role for the Brumbies in 2017 after a knee injury ruled Tomas Cubelli out for four months. The 23-year old took full advantage of his opportunity, outperforming his peers and helping the Brumbies to the Australian Conference title.

His form would earn him another Wallabies call-up for the June Test series, making his Test debut against Fiji in Melbourne, just rewards for his impressive form in Brumbies colours.

Now one of the premier scrumhalves in Super Rugby, Powell will play a key role in the Brumbies charge towards Super Rugby glory in 2018.
