Brumbies have confirmed that Australia fly-half Noah Lolesio has signed a one-year contract extension with the Super Rugby club.

“Canberra certainly feels like home for me and it’s the best place to continue to grow as a player and a person on and off the field," he told the club's official website.

"I’m grateful to have my future sorted for next year and want to thank the Brumbies and Rugby Australia for their ongoing support.”

A product of Brumbies academy, Lolesio started his professional rugby debut with Canberra Vikings in 2019 before making his debut for Brumbies in 2020 in which he helped the team win the Super Rugby AU title.

He also signed a joker deal with French club Toulon during the 2023 Rugby World Cup before rejoining Brumbies ahead of the 2024 season. The 24-year-old overall has played 63 times for the Australian franchise. In the ongoing 2024 season, he has amassed 140 points in 14 games with a successful goal kicking percentage close to 85.

Lolesio made his Australia debut in 2020 and has featured in 17 Tests for the Wallabies.

"We’ve got a really special group of players at the moment and we are quite pleased to have Noah continue his journey with the Brumbies as we build something special here in Canberra," said Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham.

"He has been an integral part of our squad since making his debut in 2020. The playing group, support staff, Members and fans will be excited of the news heading into this week's Semi-Final against the Blues," said Larkham.

“The next period in Australian Rugby presents some once-in-a-career opportunities and I’ll be working hard to give myself the best possible chance to be a part of them but for now my focus is on finishing off the Super Rugby Pacific season in a positive fashion.”

Brumbies will be taking on Blues in the 2024 Super Rugby Pacific semi-final at Eden Park in Auckland on Friday.
