The move will see the 43-year-old remain in charge until the end of the 2020 season, after taking over from former coach Michael Cheika in 2016 following three years as his assistant.
Since he took the reins, he has guided his team to 10th and 16th place finishes before getting them to the semi-finals last time around.
Club boss Andrew Hore spoke of his delight at Gibson’s extension following the announcement.
“We are really pleased to have Daryl staying on board until the end of 2020,” he said.
Hore continued on to praise Gibson for his contribution towards developing youth players at the club.
“Daryl has been a big driver in opening up our players and support staff to importance of giving back to the grassroots and helping reinvest in the game at the community level. He’s instilled purpose and identify in all that our players and support staff do,” he said.
“For Daryl, the focus has been on putting the structures and systems in place to not only bring through the younger talent, but invest in coaching and support staff,” he added.
Gibson also spoke of his delight in continuing his stay in New South Wales.
“It is a real privilege to continue to serve NSW rugby for another season,” he said.
He also mirrored Hore’s comments about the importance of grassroots rugby.
“I’ve been very open that I want to bring the next generation through as well as bed down the systems we have been working hard to put in place to keep our best rugby talent in the game,” he continued.
He finished up by speaking of his hopes for what is to come.
“We have some great people in our ranks and I am excited to be working with them and hopefully delivering some more great results as we build towards the future,” he said.
The Waratahs will be looking to start the season off with a bang when they host the Hurricanes on Saturday with added energy knowing that Gibson is staying on.
SANZAAR to Consider Japan’s Rugby Championship Inclusion
Following their hugely impressive Rugby World Cup performances from Japan SANZAAR are set to not only consider the team’s inclusion in the Rugby Championship but are also to reconsider the Sunwolves future according to reports
Following Japan’s brilliant World Cup campaign where they reached the last eight of the competition for the first time in their history, SANZAAR are apparently set to consider bringing the country into the Rugby Championship to help them develop their game.
The report claims that SANZAAR are set to meet in Tokyo on Friday where they will also discuss the possibility of reintroducing the Sunwolves to Super Rugby.
Speaking to Newshub, World Rugby chief executive Brett Gosper is hoping that Japan will be able to compete at the highest level and rues the fact that the Nations Championship proposal was shut down.
“Certainly if I was in their shoes I’d be very keen to have Japan in my competition sooner rather than later. That’s entirely their call. We proposed a nations championship that had Japan very much playing at the top table and maybe they’ll see it that way for their own particular championship” he said.
The inclusion of the Sunwolves would be huge for Japan after the franchise failed to agree a new contract with SANZAAR to extend their time in the competition where they have only won eight of 62 games since 2016.
However, considering the success of the national side this tournament it seems only fair that they should be given a chance to continue their development to the top tier and that will only happen if their players are playing against the best week in week out.
The Japanese were unfortunate to go down 26-3 to the Springboks on Saturday in the quarter-finals, but following their incredible performances where they played a fast and exciting style of rugby, earning many fans worldwide, people will hope that this is only the beginning of their rugby story.
Brumbies Sign Rugby League Star
The Brumbies have signed a Rugby League star for the 2020 Super Rugby
The 24-year-old is a five-time capped Tonga and six-time capped New Zealand international and has put pen to paper on a three deal with Canberra-based side which starts next year.
Brumbies head coach Dan McKellar is delighted to have the utility back join the franchise as he adds further depth to the squad.
“He is a point of difference player with a physical profile to add to our squad. He is a very powerful and dynamic footballer who has the ability to stress any defensive line. At this stage, we see him as a utility back and we will be open-minded about the position he plays,” he said.
While the player himself, who has played league for the New Zealand Warriors as well as Melbourne Storm is excited to start this new chapter in his career.
“I have heard very good things about the Brumbies and how they have developed their players … I can’t wait to get to Canberra to start my professional rugby union career,” he said.
The back had a fantastic record with the Warriors side scoring 45 tries in only 93 matches, but failed to appear for Melbourne Storm. However, Brumbies fans will certainly be excited about having a new player with a lot of potential.
White’s Future Finally Sorted Out
Wallabies scrum-half Nic White has confirmed what team he shall sign for come the end of his contract with Exeter
White has signed a two-year deal that will see him through until after the 2022 Super Rugby season with his former employers, whom he lined-out for previously between 2011 and 2015.
The 29-year-old has admitted that he is delighted to be moving home in a couple of years time but is looking forward to the remainder of his time with the Chiefs before then.
“The Brumbies is home for me, and Canberra is home for my family, so to know that my future is set and that I’ll be back at the Brumbies. It’s so exciting. Right now, I’m completely focused on the Rugby World Cup and the Wallabies, and I look forward to getting back to the Chiefs and ripping in with them, but again, knowing I’ll be returning to a place and a club I love is really special,” he said.
White re-signed with Rugby Australia in order to take part in this year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan and has since gone on to become the nations first-choice scrum-half ahead of Will Genia.
Brumbies head coach Dan McKellar is excited for White’s return and believes that he will bring a lot to the squad.
“We are thrilled to have Whitey returning to the Brumbies,” head coach, Dan McKellar commented. “He’s a world-class player, a player who demands very high standards of himself and expects the same of others. His work ethic, competitive nature and leadership will be so important to our squad when he returns,” he said.
During his first stint with the Aussie franchise he scored 162 points over 67 appearances before playing two seasons with French Top 14 outfit Montpellier and is currently starring for Exeter in the English Premiership.
Having made his Wallabies debut in 2013, he has gone on to feature in 29 tests and is set to play his 30th game for his country when they take on Uruguay on Friday where he is in the starting line-up as the Aussies look to end the pool stages with another win and having a chance to finish top of Pool C.
