Brumbies prop Scott Sio has extended his contract with the Canberra franchise for another two Super Rugby seasons.

The news comes on the back of both Jarrad Butler and Henry Speight re-committing to the club, both for two years, to all but cement a quality line-up.

In the last month the Brumbies have re-signed, Jarrad Butler, Henry Speight, Christian Lealiifano , Matt Toomua and , Nic White on two year contracts while Jesse Mogg and Scott Fardy have signed one year deals.

The youngest of the Brumbies prop-stocks, Sio came to Canberra on an EPS contract at the start of 2012 but has since gone on to become a regular in the Brumbies front row and an option for Ewen McKenzie's Wallabies.

With four Wallabies caps and a Super Rugby Finals series under the belt, Sio boasts a wealth of experience for such a young player.

Sio said becoming a better prop was one of the major reasons behind him re-signing with the Brumbies.

"With Ben Alexander and Stephen Moore here, I really couldn't ask for a better place to be for the next two seasons," Sio said.

"Already they've had a huge impact on my own career and along with Laurie Fisher and Dan McKellar, I think they provide me with everything I need to become a much better player.

"When I got here I'd only just started playing prop - I was still tossing up whether or not I should have a crack at hooker. I grew up playing No.8 and a bit of flanker, so I was certainly pretty raw in terms of rugby knowledge.

"But I feel comfortable in the front row now, particularly at loose-head. It's where I feel I can keep improving and have the biggest impact for the team moving forward."

The son of former Samoan international prop, David Sio, Scott comes from a proven bloodline of quality rugby players.
