Born and bred in Canberra, Joe Powell is being touted as one of the next big things for Australian rugby.

Powell was elevated into the Brumbies Super Rugby squad in 2015 after an injury to Nic White. He made his debut against the Melbourne Rebels at GIO Stadium just a week after his 21st birthday and went on to appear in three matches for the side he has supported his whole life.

In 2016, Powell will link with the Brumbies on an Extended Playing Squad (EPS) contract.

A star at rugby nursery Marist College, Powell was a member of the Australian Schoolboys shadow squad in 2012 after turning in some big performances for the ACT Schools side at the national championships in Sydney.

After finishing school he linked with Tuggeranong Vikings in the John I Dent Cup where he made his first grade debut in 2013. Powell took over the halfback spot full-time in 2014, replacing club legend Beau Mokotupu.

In 2014 Powell was a member of the Australian U20’s side which contested the Junior World Cup in New Zealand, impressing many onlookers with his performances at the tournament.

He capped off a big year by winning the local competition with the Tuggeranong Vikings and being selected as one of the youngest players in the inaugural University of Canberra Vikings Buildcorp National Rugby Championship (NRC) squad.

In 2015 Powell was a standout for  UC Vikings in the Buildcorp NRC and was rewarded with the side’s Best Back award.

Powell had been working as an apprentice carpenter before putting down the tools to focus on his rugby career with the Brumbies.

Joe’s cousin Katrina Powell is a former Hockeyroos captain and led the team to Commonwealth Games gold as well as the Champions Trophy in 2003.
