New deal: Nic White

Wallabies scrum-half Nic White has joined teammate Matt Toomua in signing a new contract with the Brumbies and ARU on Thursday.

White, who has taken over much of the goal-kicking duties for the franchise this season, has put pen to paper on a deal that sees him through to the end of 2016.

"My time with the Wallabies has been incredible," said White. "It's a privilege to represent your country so to commit to two years with Australian rugby is something I'm very proud of.

"There were some good signs during last year's spring tour, and to be a part of that team moving forward is exciting. At both national and provincial level, I feel like I have more to build on and more to contribute, so staying in Australia was always the best option for me at this point in my career."

Wallabies coach Ewen McKenzie said he was delighted by White's decision.

"Nic is an extremely competitive person who boasts a unique set of rugby skills," said McKenzie. "He possesses attributes that are important to any team and so isn't surprising to see the level of consistent success he's had at the Brumbies and more recently at Test level.

"The exciting part is that we are yet to see the best Nic has to offer as he's only now in his fourth year of Super Rugby since his debut in 2011. He has great potential and we expect him to continue growing as a player over the next few years.

"Nic obviously has strong aspirations to be part of the Wallabies journey so we're thrilled he has signed a new two-year deal."
