Brumbies snare Kyle Godwin

The Aquis Brumbies have snared the signature of one of Australian Rugby’s rising stars, with Kyle Godwin agreeing to link with the club on a two-year deal.

The crafty centre who can play flyhalf, was called into the Wallabies training squad this week ahead of Saturday night’s test against the Springboks at Suncorp Stadium. He also represented the NSW Country Eagles at Viking Park on Sunday afternoon, scoring a try against a number of his future Brumbies teammates.

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).
