Biography

The Cornish Pirates captured the signature of Canadian international Brett at the end of April, 2015, on a contract that saw him cross the River Tamar from relegated Plymouth Albion.
Starting his rugby at the age of 12 for the Lindsay Rugby Football Club, he was educated at Lindsay Collegiate & Vocational Institute and at Shawnigan Lake School (the same school as fellow ‘Canuck’ Matt Evans attended). He also played at the University of Victoria for four years, as well as representing Ontario Blues.
Family support has always been forthcoming and there have certainly been influences, as Brett comes from a very athletic background. His dad was an ice hockey player and an uncle, Jeff Beukeboom, had an extremely successful National Hockey League (NHL) career. More recently, Brett has not only captained Canada but also proudly played alongside his younger brother Matt, who debuted for Canada in the 2017 Americas Rugby Championship.
Having made his debut for the Pirates immediately post the 2015 Rugby World Cup, by the end of the 2016-17 season Brett had made 43 appearances for the club.
