White re-joins Brumbies on tour in South Africa

Brumbies scrum-half Nic White has joined the rest of the Brumbies Super Rugby touring squad in South Africa ahead of their clash against the Stormers at Newlands.

The Brumbies flew into Africa on Monday morning ready for a big week on the Cape, the Stormers preparing to right the wrongs of last week after falling to the Cheetahs.

White returns for the Stormers match this weekend after three weeks out, his ankle injury now firmly beaten.

He said the Stormers presented the Brumbies with a significant challenge.

"We haven’t managed to win over here since 2010, it’s a very hostile environment and the crowd always plays a part," White said.

"They’re in a very similar situation to us, having come off a tight loss to a domestic rival so they’ll be right up for the game on Saturday."

The Brumbies start their two-game tour against the Stormers, before heading to Johannesburg to face the Lions next weekend.

Brumbies touring squad:

JP Smith, Stephen Moore, Ben Alexander, Jordan Smiler, Sam Carter, Scott Fardy, David Pocock, Ita Vaea, Michael Dowsett, Christian Lealiifano, Joe Tomane, Robbie Coleman, Tevita Kuridrani, Henry Speight, Jesse Mogg, Josh Mann-Rea, Allan Alaalatoa, Ruan Smith, Blake Enever, Jarrad Butler, Nic White, James Dargaville, Nigel Ah Wong, Rod Iona, Rory Arnold, Sean Doyle.
