Former Wallabies winger Clyde Rathbone will pull on a Brumbies jersey for the first time in 19 months when he plays in a sevens trial match on Friday.

Rathbone, who has played 26 Tests for Australia, has recovered from a long-term knee injury and will play in the Brumbies' match against the Australian sevens side in Canberra.

The South African-born flyer last played in week nine of the 2007 Super 14 competition.

He will join four of the Brumbies' new recruits for 2009 in the squad - Ben Hand, James Stannard, Sitaleki Timani and former Australian sevens captain Shawn Mackay.

"Friday's trial will have little bearing on our selection for the Super 14 season but it will give these guys a chance to blow out the cobwebs, get some football under their belts and get some match fitness," Brumbies coach Andy Friend said.
