ACT Brumbies utility back Jordan Jackson-Hope is set to sign a deal in Japan, but the Canberra club will leave the door ajar for his potential return next year. Jackson-Hope is on the verge of joining Toyota Shokki after getting limited opportunities to play Super Rugby this season. However, he could still return to the Brumbies next season if the parties can agree to a new contract. The Brumbies have continued their contract signings and movements, locking prop Tom Ross into a new two-year deal after making his professional debut this season. There has been a wave of player movement in the final rounds of the regular season, with Henry Speight and David Pocock both announcing they won't return to the Brumbies next year. Lachlan McCaffrey and Matt Lucas signed contract extensions last week and the Brumbies are still working to finalise a deal for Nic White to return to Canberra next season. BRUMBIES NEWS Tevita Kuridrani is believed to be close to signing a new Brumbies contract. Ross is part of a group of rising Canberra juniors who have impressed Brumbies coach Dan McKellar. He made his debut against the NSW Waratahs earlier this year and the former Australian under-20s prop is expected to get more game time next year. "Playing for the Brumbies has been my dream since I was a kid, so to re-sign here is incredible and I'm just so grateful for the opportunity," Ross said. "Making my debut this year, with Mack (Hansen) was amazing, and to do it in a win against the Waratahs made it that much better. "I'm enjoying the challenge every day of proving myself against guys like Scott Sio and James Slipper. I know I've still got some developing to do but I know that this is the best place for me to continue to get better as a player and a person." The Brumbies can all but secure their finals spot if they beat the NSW Waratahs in Sydney on Saturday night. The Brumbies are five points clear in the Australian conference and will earn the right to host a week one finals match if they stay at the top of the table. SUPER RUGBY ROUND 17 Saturday: NSW Waratahs v ACT Brumbies at Parramatta, 7.45pm.
