Will Miller comes out of retirement to rejoin Brumbies

Date published: April 6 2021

The Brumbies have announced that 2020 Super Rugby AU winner Will Miller has rejoined the club for the remainder of this season.

Miller has been signed as injury cover for Jahrome Brown who has suffered a shoulder injury in the side’s win over the Western Force a fortnight ago.

28-year-old Miller joined the Canberra-based club at the end of 2019 and featured in every game for the club last year before retiring after the Championship win and returning to his family’s dairy farm in Berry.

Brumby number 224, the 28-year-old has rejoined the side this week ahead of the Grand Final rematch against the Queensland Reds in Brisbane on Saturday night.

Excited to be back

Miller said: “I’m really excited to be back in Canberra and back at the Brumbies.

“I certainly wasn’t expecting an opportunity like this when I retired last year and I’ll be doing everything I can to make the most of it and contribute where I can.”

Brumbies coach Dan McKellar said: “We couldn’t be happier to have Will back at the Brumbies, he’s a really well liked member of the group and a solid footballer with great skills.”

“At the same time, we’re really disappointed for Jahrome, he had a great pre-season and start to the year and was in really good shape after working hard in the off season.”
