The Brumbies have announced that their exciting young back rower Colby Faingaa has decided to be the one that didn’t get away after his brothers got sick of waiting for a chance with the Brumbies and headed off to star for Queensland.
Faingaa is a local product having grown up in Queanbeyan. A St Edmund’s College old boy, Faingaa said he was proud to be given an opportunity to represent his local region for another two years.
“My family live just over the boarder in Queanbeyan and I’ve lived in the area all my life, so being given the chance to represent the ACT for another two years is very exciting,” Faingaa said.
“Committing to a two-year deal was one of my goals at the start of the year – it’s just part of what I want to do in rugby and where I want to get to.”
