Ross Braude

Braude, 22, has committed to a second campaign with the club after making 11 appearances (10 starts) in his debut MLR season.

The league’s youngest scrum-half enjoyed a strong first season in North America, racking up 509 passes, 91 carry metres on 23 carries, 71 kicks in play (1,866 metres), 38 tackles, 13 tackle breaks and one try this past year.

The South African-born Canadian international, who is eligible to play for Canada through his Montreal-born father, has collected eight caps for his adopted nation since making his international debut against Wales in July 2021. Braude previously represented South Africa’s under-18 sevens team before joining the Arrows and opting for Canada as his test future.

The 5’6”, 185lb half-back joined the Arrows prior to the start of the 2021 MLR season from then-Super Rugby side Bulls, where he helped lead the Pretorian club’s age-grade sides to under-19 and under-21 championships in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

As a student in South Africa, Braude captained the prestigious Grey College 1st XV and twice represented Free State in the iconic Craven Week schoolboys tournament.
