Hailing from Queensland, Australia, Brent arrived at Sardis Road after spending some time at London Irish.
A powerful presence on the field, Brent has a marvellous International pedigree, brother Matt is a legendary Australian International, and although Brent once held the ambition to play for his Birthland, he recently set his sights on following in Sonny Parker's footsteps by committing himself to the Red Jersey of Wales.
Of Pontypridd, Brent commented:
"Pontypridd is more my style. The people are really friendly and I feel really at home. The supporters are fantastic and when you hear that huge roar when you push in the scrums it's really inspiring.
Who knows, maybe I can persuade my brother Matt to come to Pontypridd one day, when he's finished with the Wallabies!"
Capped for his adopted country on August 28th 2003 in a World Cup warm-up match at Wrexham against Romania, Brent left Pontypridd in 2003 to join the Celtic Warriors regional team, before linking up with West Glamorgan's Ospreys region when the Warriors franchise collapsed.
Brent currently plies his trade with Manchester's Sale Sharks.
