Former Western Force Super 14 player James Stannard has joined the battle for the Brumbies' halfback jersey.

The ACT franchise announced on Friday it had signed the 25-year-old on a one-year deal.

Stannard played 10 matches for the Force, making his debut this Super 14 season.

He faces stiff competition for a starting Brumbies jersey from Josh Holmes and Pat Phibbs.

Originally from Queensland, he said he was looking forward to returning to the east coast.

"I'm really looking forward to getting down there, getting stuck into the training and proving myself before the start of the Super 14 season," he said.

"The Brumbies have a history of developing players and playing a very free running style of play which are two things that appeal to me."

Head coach Andy Friend said Stannard's continual improvement augured well for his time at the Brumbies.

"James has proven himself at Super 14 level and shown what a tough and competitive half he is.

"He's stepped up with each opportunity he's been given from club level and the ARC through to Super 14 and we're keen to see him continue to develop as part of the CA Brumbies."
