Braude, 22, is returning to the Arrows for a third campaign after featuring in 21 matches (20 starts) for the club since debuting in 2021.
“I’m looking forward to representing the Arrows for another season in Major League Rugby,” said Braude. “This is a very talented group of players, and I’m confident we’ll perform to our potential and push hard to bring the Shield to Toronto.”
The five-foot-six, 185-pound halfback has been a fixture for the Arrows since his breakout season as a 21-year-old, producing 540 carry metres on 70 carries, 140 kicks in play, 91 tackles, 34 tackle breaks, six linebreaks, four tries and two breakdown steals over his first two years with the club.
The South African-born Canadian international, who is eligible to play for Canada through his Montreal-born father, has collected 12 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.
Braude 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.
