Godwin ready to revive career with Brumbies

RUGBY: Centre Kyle Godwin is hoping working with Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham will take him to the next level after confirming his switch from the Western Force.

The 24-year-old, part of the Wallabies squad for Saturday night's Rugby Championship game against South Africa at Suncorp Stadium, has played all of his Super Rugby with the Perth-based franchise since moving from Zimbabwe as an eight-year-old.

He said it would be a bit of a culture shock but was something he was looking forward to.

"I've lived in Perth my whole life, I live 10 minutes away from training, so it's going to be a big change moving to Canberra,” he said.

"The opportunity to grow as a person and as a rugby player at the Brumbies is something I could not ignore.

"The opportunity to be coached by Stephen Larkham, someone who played in a position similar to me, was definitely another reason for the decision.

"I've loved every minute at the Western Force and the club will always be very special to me, but the move to the Brumbies is the best decision for my career.”
