Cape Town - The
Crusaders have signed utility back Braydon Ennor on a two-year deal,
which sees him join the 2017 Super Rugby champions for the 2018 and 2019
Originally from Auckland, Ennor joined the Crusaders Academy in 2015
with a Woohoo NZ Tax Refunds scholarship and, following a stellar club
season with the University Club, he was selected by Canterbury for the
Mitre 10 Cup this season.
Ennor was also part of the victorious New Zealand Under-20 team that lifted the Junior Rugby World Cup in Georgia in June.
Crusaders Head Coach Scott Robertson said Ennor is a young and
exciting player who has a great skill set, and who offers real
versatility to the squad and coaching group.
“Braydon is a really dynamic player, who can play wing, midfield or
fullback, so it’s great to have a player with the ability to play any
of these positions. He is genuinely fast, and knows his way to the try
line, which he has shown in his rugby this season at club, under 20s and
in Mitre 10 Cup," he said.
Ennor said he was looking forward to joining the Crusaders in
November following the conclusion of the Mitre 10 Cup season with
“It’s such a great opportunity to join the Crusaders and it has been a
goal of mine since moving to Christchurch in 2015. I’ve been around the
team as part of the training group this season, and now being part of
the squad is a really exciting opportunity.”
Ennor is set to play for Canterbury tomorrow night at AMI Stadium as
they look to defend the Ranfurly Shield against Counties Manukau.
