Wallabies winger Andrew Kellaway has signed a contract extension with Rugby Australia and Melbourne Rebels until 2024.

Kellaway has currently recovered from a foot injury and is set to feature for the Rebels in the upcoming round for his first outing in the Super Rugby Pacific competition.

Having started his career with New South Wales and Waratahs in 2014, the 26-year-old featured for Northampton Saints and Counties Manukau before joining Rebels in 2020. He also had a brief stint with Japanese club Green Rockets Tokatsu in 2021 before resuming his Super Rugby duty with the Melbourne club.

Kellaway admitted that extending his career with Rebels was a straightforward decision.

"It's been a whirlwind 10 months for me personally, and I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity the Rebels gave me to return to Super Rugby last season and really excited about what we can achieve together in the future," he said.

"I feel like Melbourne is home for me now and I'm looking forward to adding as much value as I can both on and off the field over the next three years."

The 6ft fullback made his Australia debut during the series against France in July last year and has featured in 13 Tests until now and Wallabies head coach Dave Rennie is pleased to have his services until 2024.

"Andrew's a top man and a mature rugby player who has quickly become an important member of our mob on and off the field," Rennie said.

"His journey to becoming a Wallaby is well documented and a new contract is reward for his self-belief, determination and hard work.

"We all saw the impact he was able to have in his first year at Test level and his work ethic and professionalism will ensure he continues to put himself in the best position to do that moving forward."
