Kyle Godwin, one of Australian Rugby’s rising stars, will link up with the Plus500 Brumbies in 2017.

Born in Zimbabwe, Godwin has been one of the Western Force’s best players since making his Super Rugby debut as a 19-year old in 2012 against the Queensland Reds.

Later that year, the talented playmaker represented the Australian U20s team at the 2012 Junior World Championship in South Africa, starting every match at flyhalf scoring 21 points throughout the tournament.

After scoring his first Super Rugby try against the Crusaders in the final round of the 2012 season, Godwin was named RugbyWA’s U20 Player of the Year and runner-up in the PG Hampshire Award (WA Club Rugby Player of the Year).

Touted as one of the brightest prospects to have come out of the Western Australian Pathways program, Godwin captained WA and represented the Australian Schoolboys side in 2009 (alongside Scott Sio) and was a member of the side which narrowly beat New Zealand Schoolboys 28-24.

The 24-year old had a breakout season in 2013 for the Force and was recognised as the club’s most outstanding player with the inaugural Nathan Sharpe Medal, Members’ Most Valuable Player Award and Rising Star Award.

In 2014, Godwin was called into the Wallabies 30-man squad for The Rugby Championship. A shoulder injury later ruled him out of the Wallabies Spring Tour of Europe and possible national debut.

A crafty centre who can play flyhalf, Godwin will add versatility and strength to an already potent Brumbies backline in 2017.
