Former South African Under-21 fly half Isma-eel Dollie is temporarily, or maybe permanently, lost to South African rugby. Dollie has signed a one year contract with the Brumbies Academy in Canberra after he secretly left Cape Town a couple of days ago.

According to the Kaapse Son newspaper, Dollie has decided to try a new career abroad after he was once again overlooked by Rassie Erasmus for the Stormers’ training squad.

Dollie was apparently offered a contract for the 2009 season by the Boland Kavaliers, but declined as he was hoping to be part of the Stormers squad for next season.

After Erasmus overlooked him for a second season in succession, Dollie got frustrated and sent a CV as well as a DVD of his career to the Brumbies.


The article also reveals that Dollie is considering Australian citizenship as some of his family already stay Down Under.

Brumbies spokesman Nick Smith confirmed that Dollie signed a three year contract at entry level.

“Admittedly level one and two contracts were already signed when Isma-eel arrived,” he said.


Earlier this year Dollie was part of Peter de Villiers’ Springbok training squad, but disappeared into no-man’s land.
