Cape Town - The Brumbies have made headlines by securing the services of highly-rated Australian schoolboy sensation Reesjan Pasitoa.

According to the RugbyPass website, the 17-year-old flyhalf will join the Brumbies in 2020 after he has completed his studies in Brisbane. 

Pasitoa has already represented Australia at U-18 level and recently toured with the Australian Schools side that toured Ireland and Scotland. 

Brumbies coach Dan McKellar said he was looking forward to Pasitoa's arrival. 

"We are very happy to have an exciting prospect like Reesjan Pasitoa join the Brumbies," he said.

"We started watching Reesjan closely 6 months ago and from day one we were impressed by his skill level, natural instincts and character.

"For a player of such a young age he has a maturity beyond his years, a good kicking game both out of hand and off the tee, good catch pass and importantly he is a genuine threat with the ball."
