Wallabies flanker Scott Fardy says the lure of continuing to work under Brumbies coaches Stephen Larkham and Laurie Fisher is behind his desire to remain in Canberra.

The 29-year-old, who played in 10 of the final 11 Tests of the year, is coming off contract at the Brumbies at the end of the 2014 season.

Fardy, who made his debut against the All Blacks in the 2013 Bledisloe Cup opener, joined the Brumbies from Japan on an extended-player squad deal worth just $40,000 for the 2012 season. While he is yet to commence negotiations over his next contract, Fardy made his preference clear in a Canberra Times report.

''We haven't started [negotiations], but I'm obviously keen to stay here,'' he said. ''I've got two good coaches I'm happy to play under and that's what drives my decision. 'With Laurie and [Larkham] here I'm very happy and hopefully for a long time after this. 'From what I've seen the work-rate [at training] has been there over the pre-season and I can't see things changing too much.''

Fardy is not the only Wallabies player at the Brumbies who is coming off contract at the end of next year, with five-eighth Matt Toomua, inside-centre Christian Lealiifano, prop Scott Sio and fullback Jesse Mogg also on the market. Brumbies team-mates Henry Speight, No. 8 Fotu Auelua and Clyde Rathbone will also be looking for new contracts in what could provide a salary-cap headache for the club.
