    Brumbies open to Giteau stint

    Cape Town - Brumbies coach Stephen Larkham says that he would be 'open' to Wallabies legend Matt Giteau returning to Canberra.

    The Brumbies are apparently keen to lure some experience back to the club in the forms of Giteau and winger Drew Mitchell. Giteau is leaving French giant Toulon and is set to take up a contract in Japan after the season.

    Larkham says that he would like Giteau to play for the Brumbies in between his contracts and that he would love to have the stalwart back in the Brumbies mix.

    "Potentially, I'm always open to someone like Matt coming back," Larkham told the Canberra Times.

    "He's a bit of a local legend and held in high respect among the boys. This generation really respects him and I'm sure they'd love to play with him.

    "All options are open. I've spoken to Gits before about coming back to the timing hasn't quite worked. I know he's off contract with Toulon and has a bit of a break for Japan.

    "It's a conversation I'll try to have with him in the next week. I've spoken to him about coming back through [Canberra] before going to Japan."

    According to the Canberra Times the Brumbies boss is also keen on signing Mitchell who is still contracted to Toulon. Although, it has been reported that the winger would rather go back to the Waratahs if he returns to Super Rugby.
