Rebels sign Brumbies flanker Faingaa



The Melbourne Rebels said Sunday they had signed flanker Colby Faingaa from Australian rivals the ACT Brumbies for the 2014 Super Rugby season.

The former Australian under-20s captain, the younger brother of Wallabies and Queensland Reds twins Saia and Anthony, will join the Rebels on a one-year contract.

Rebels head coach Damien Hill said Faingaa, 22, was a great signing for his club because of his versatility and his desire to improve himself.

"He is a tremendous openside flanker who can cover all positions in the backrow, which is a skill not many forwards possess in this competition," Hill said.

Faingaa has played 26 Super Rugby games for the Brumbies and joins London Irish prop Max Lahiff, Leinster hooker Tom Sexton and former Wallabies scrum-half Luke Burgess in Melbourne's ranks next season.
