Stephen Larkham offered unlikely return by Brumbies coach

5:43 pm on 11 May 2012

The great Wallabies No.10 Stephen Larkham could come out of retirement and pull on an ACT Brumbies jersey again.

Brumbies coach Jake White's trying to lure Larkham back to plug a gap at first five after he lost Matt Toomua and Christian Lealiifano to season-ending injuries.

Larkham turns 38 this month and is now White's assistant coach. White says he's a real option to fill in. Larkham last played for the Canberra-based side in 2007.

The Brumbies are also searching for an offshore-based Australian to fill the role, with Matt Giteau among the possible options.
