George Smith playing in Japan

In Canberra: George Smith

Former Australia back-row forward George Smith has rejoined the Brumbies on a short-term contract.

The 32-year-old Smith, a 110-test veteran, is on a contract at Japanese club Suntory which allows him short deals outside of the domestic season.

Smith, who played 128 games for the Brumbies before leaving in 2010, will come in as cover for the injured Ita Vaea, who has a heart problem.

Brumbies coach Jake White said Smith "has won Super Rugby Championships, he's won big games for the Wallabies and he's played in a Rugby World Cup final, so I want him to bring that winning culture back here to the Brumbies."
