    Sydney - The Waratahs have added to their playing stocks for 2017 with the announcement of flyhalf Bryce Hegarty re-signing for a further season.

    Hegarty first joined the squad in January this year. He earned two caps for the ‘Tahs in the first few matches of Super Rugby 2016 before being struck by a season ending ACL injury in round two against the Brumbies.

    The 24-year-old utility back has previous Super Rugby experience, having played 33 times for the Melbourne Rebels, securing 49 points for the club, including seven tries. He joined the Waratahs after a stint overseas in the Japanese Top League.

    Recently back running, Hegarty will be ready in time for the 2017 pre-season. Waratahs head coach Daryl Gibson said he was keen to see Bryce back on the park for the Sydneysiders.

    "Bryce has been working hard on his rehabilitation and returning as a better athlete," Gibson said.

    "His season was cruelly cut short this year, but he is on track for a return in pre-season and is keen to perform for the team in 2017.

    "Bryce brings a lot of experience and guidance in a position where, nationally, depth is being tested. So I'm really looking forward to how he can add to the new energy of the team next season."
