Brouwer featured in two matches in the shortened 2020 campaign, and has made 18 appearances over his two seasons with the club. Regarded as one of the most dominant scrummagers in Major League Rugby, the hard-nosed forward has also made 157 tackles (93.5% completion) and racked up 250 carry metres on 69 carries throughout the 2019 and 2020 seasons, along with scoring a pair of tries. His impressive performances throughout the club’s inaugural season landed him a spot on the All-MLR 1st XV.
The 38-year-old prop has garnered 11 caps for Canada, and holds the mark as the national team’s oldest debutante – a distinction he earned in February 2016 when he stepped on the field against Brazil at the age of 33 years, 72 days.
Brouwer is a graduate of the Ontario Blues senior men’s provincial program and the McMaster Marauders post-secondary program, and played his grassroots rugby with his hometown Lindsay Rugby Football Club.
