Jesse Mogg wants to stay at the Brumbies because of their strong culture and hopes off-contract teammates will choose to do the same.
 
Mogg's contract runs out at the end of the season but he signalled his intention to remain in Canberra beyond that.
 
It is a show of faith in the club that gave him a chance after he had been overlooked by his home state Queensland and moved to the nation's capital for one last go at it.
 
The 24-year-old made his Wallabies debut last year and has one of the most damaging boots in the game.
 
Star playmakers Matt Toomua and Christian Lealiifano are also off contract at the end of the year.
 
Toomua has been linked with a return to his home town of Melbourne and it is believed Lealiifano was also weighing up offers from the Rebels and overseas.
 
Scrum-half Nic White and versatile forward Scott Fardy  will also be on the long off-contract list at the end of the season, along with Scott Sio, Fotu Auelua, Clyde Rathbone, Henry Speight and Joe Tomane.
 
Mogg was hopeful they would also want to remain part of a team emerging as a serious title contender.
 
"Obviously my preference would be to stay, I think we've built a really good, strong culture at the club and we've got a strong group," said Mogg
 
"I think everyone's preference would be to stay, but that's not up to us as players, that's up to the coaching staff and the office side of the Brumbies.
 
"I'm concentrating on the footy at the moment and we'll go from there.
 
"You can't really control what everyone else does, but if you're playing well and you're offering things to the side they'll want to keep you."
 
Mogg said the Chiefs game was the start of a stretch of games that would define the Brumbies' season and he emphasised the importance of a good start against the reigning champions.
 
After the Chiefs they travel to Christchurch to play the Crusaders, before hosting the Sharks and then touring South Africa.
