Fresh off of leading Sydney University to victory in the Shute Shield, Guy Porter has signed with the Plus500 Brumbies for the 2020 season. 

The 22-year-old centre who can also cover wing and fullback, has been a consistent performer both in the Shute Shield and the NRC over the past couple of seasons and joins the Brumbies as part of the wider training squad. 

“It’s a dream come true to have signed with the Brumbies, “ Porter said. 

“I’ve worked for this goal for many years now, so to sign my first professional contract means the world to me and I’m just so grateful for the opportunity the Brumbies are giving me. 

“Joining a club with this kind of history and standing in the game is a massive challenge for me, but’s it’s something I’ll relish and now all I want to do is get down to Canberra and get started.” 

Porter, who will graduate with a law degree this year, will add depth to the Brumbies squad, something Head Coach Dan McKellar believes is crucial to success. 

“We’re excited to have Guy join our program and make the step up to Super Rugby,” McKellar said. 

Guy has been a standout performer for Sydney Uni for a number of seasons now. He has the ability to cover a number of positions in the backline which adds genuine versatility to our group. 

“At the Brumbies, we don’t just look at the player, we look at the character as well. Guy clearly has a good head on his shoulders and has already proven to be a quality young leader. 

“To be named Captain of a club like Sydney Uni at the age of 22 and lead them to a Premiership tells us a lot about the quality of the individual we are bringing to the Brumbies.”
