Western Force secure Ian Prior signing

The Western Force sign Brumbies scrum-half Ian Prior on a two-year contract.

Australian scrum-half Ian Prior has completed a move from the Brumbies to the Western Force.

The 22-year-old, who has agreed a two-year contract, has admitted his delight at finalising the terms with the Perth outfit.

"I was really excited to sign with the Force and be a part of an up-and-coming team," he told the club's official website.

"When I came to the Brumbies they were in a similar position and I've always enjoyed the challenge of contributing to an always-improving team. I spoke to Luke Morahan in depth and we had similar views on contributing to a young and up-and-coming team and helping contribute to a winning culture based on our experiences."

"Based on their performances this season, the Force is heading in the right direction; they're building the right culture under Michael Foley and that really appealed to me. They're playing a positive brand of footy this season which is great to see as a player joining the side next year."

Prior is yet to gain full recognition for his country.
