Elsom returning to NSW

5:48 am on 14 September 2011

The Wallabies flanker Rocky Elsom is returning to the New South Wales Waratahs next season after signing a two-year deal to return to the club where he started his Super rugby career and the Australian Rugby Union.

Elsom, who was stripped of the Australian captaincy last month, leaves the ACT Brumbies after two seasons in Canberra, although he played only once for the franchise this year, thanks to a hamstring injury.
