Julian Huxley, the prodigal son of Brumbies Rugby, returns to the nation’s capital after four seasons with the Queensland Reds. Huxley, a flyhalf, who can also cover fullback and centre, completed his best season of professional football with the Reds in 2006 before carrying his outstanding form across for the CA Brumbies in the Australian Provincial Championship. Blessed with an astute kicking game and radar goalkicking boot, the 27-year-old playmaker featured in six Super 14 matches for the Reds last season after collecting the coveted Pilecki Medal in hid first season in Queensland in 2003, presented to the Players Player of the Year. With previous representative honours including competing for the Australia A and the Australian Sevens sides, Huxley capped off 2006 with the vice captaincy of the Prime Minister’s XV side that defeated Japan, 61-19.

Born in Sydney, Huxley followed the same route as CA Brumbies captain Stirling Mortlock, playing his junior rugby with Lindfield and attending the Kings School. In 1998 Huxley moved to Canberra to study Commercial Law at the Australian National University and played with the Canberra Kookaburras and the Brumby Runners under coach Laurie Fisher. ‘Hux’ joined the CA Brumbies on a full contract in 2002, kicking six penalty goals in their 25-18 loss to the Highlanders on debut. After moving to the Reds in 2003, Huxley missed the 2004 season with a broken jaw and knee injury. Playing across a number of positions during his time with the Reds, he is expected to figure heavily with the CA Brumbies in 2007.

Huxley, a keen golfer with a handicap of six, also enjoys playing his guitar along to Jack Johnson and Ben Harper. He is also studying a Bachelor of Business (Property) through the University of Western Sydney.
