    “Let me put it this way, A Springbok team contains Afrikaners, Englishmen, coloureds and blacks. It has parochial foes in Bulls, Sharks, Stormers, Cheetahs and Lions. It is a recipe for war! Yet in all the years of John Smit’s captaincy, there has never been one unhappy customer, not one voice of rebellion against his leadership. He is the glue that holds the Springboks together. The man is a legend!”- Jake White

    Formal Announcement :

    Originally from Queensland, he said he was looking forward to returning to the east coast.

    "I'm really looking forward to getting down there, getting stuck into the training and proving myself before the start of the Super 14 season," he said.

    "The Brumbies have a history of developing players and playing a very free running style of play which are two things that appeal to me."

    Head coach Andy Friend said Stannard's continual improvement augured well for his time at the Brumbies.

    "James has proven himself at Super 14 level and shown what a tough and competitive half he is.

    "He's stepped up with each opportunity he's been given from club level and the ARC through to Super 14 and we're keen to see him continue to develop as part of the CA Brumbies."

    Stannard signs with Brumbies for a year

    AAP - October 24, 2008, 12:44 pm

    Former Western Force Super 14 player James Stannard has joined the battle for the Brumbies' halfback jersey.


    The ACT franchise announced on Friday it had signed the 25-year-old on a one-year deal.


    Stannard played 10 matches for the Force, making his debut this Super 14 season.
    He faces stiff competition for a starting Brumbies jersey from Josh Holmes and Pat Phibbs.


    Originally from Queensland, he said he was looking forward to returning to the east coast.


    "I'm really looking forward to getting down there, getting stuck into the training and proving myself before the start of the Super 14 season," he said.


    "The Brumbies have a history of developing players and playing a very free running style of play which are two things that appeal to me."


    Head coach Andy Friend said Stannard's continual improvement augured well for his time at the Brumbies.


    "James has proven himself at Super 14 level and shown what a tough and competitive half he is.

    Possibly, but knowing our record with #9's I wouldn't have thought the two needed to be linked?
    Plenty of others have three Scrummies and he has the extra string to his bow covering 5/8 which we aren't brimming with either.
    I suspect there may be more to it than just getting another?

    Yeah its pretty tough keeping your squad numbers low(ish) if you carry 3 scrumhalves and 3 hookers so we have 2 seniors in each and an apprentice for each (Turner and Whittaker).
