Melbourne Rebels have announced that fly-half Carter Gordon has signed a new contract with the Super Rugby club until the end of 2024.

Gordon started his professional rugby career with Queensland County in 2019 and went on to play for Queensland Reds in the 2020 Super Rugby season.

He made a switch to Melbourne Rebels in 2021 and has made 20 appearances for the club over the last two seasons.

“I’ve really enjoyed my last two seasons at the Rebels,” said Gordon to the club's official website.

“I’ve learned a lot from the players and coaches, and you can feel we are building something here, so I’m absolutely stoked to call Melbourne home for another two years.

“It’s been awesome also having my brother (Mason) at the Club. We’ve pushed each other our whole lives, so to be able to do it in this environment is great and something we don’t take for granted.

“I’m now focused on getting my body into a really good place, so I can hit the ground running and give myself every opportunity to play some good rugby next season.”

Melbourne Rebels head coach Kevin Foote is delighted with Gordon extending his stay at the club.

“It’s great to have another exciting talent like Carter stay on in Melbourne and commit to the Rebels for another two years,” said Foote.

“Carter is a player with tremendous potential and someone who’s really grown in his second season at our Club as both a playmaker and someone who remains composed under pressure on the Super Rugby stage."

Melbourne Rebels finished the Super Rugby Pacific season at 10th place after managing four wins from 14 games.
