The Brumbies have announced two more South African tinged recruits:
The University of Canberra Brumbies 2013 playing roster is now full, with the announcement that Stephan Van Der Walt and Mark Swanepoel have occupied the final two EPS positions.
Van Der Walt arrives from Queensland where he has been playing with Queensland Country and the University of Queensland. A former Sunshine Coast boy who migrated to Australia with his family from South Africa at the age of 8, Van Der Walt has the size and speed to make it as an outside centre or wing at Super Rugby level.
Swanepoel joins the University of Canberra Brumbies from New Zealand where he has been representing Canterbury in the ITM Cup. A former Western Force player who claimed four caps between 2009 and 2011, Swanepoel was on the cusp of featuring for the Crusaders in 2012 before returning to Australian shores in search of more opportunity.
