Wallabies star Folau Fainga'a has committed his immediate future to Rugby Australia and Super Rugby side Brumbies after signing a new deal at least until 2022.

The 24-year-old started his professional rugby career for National Rugby Championship side with New South Wales Country Eagles in 2016 but shifted to Canberra Vikings a year later. He made his debut in Super Rugby for Brumbies in 2018 and finished the 2019 season as the club's leading try-scorer with 12 touchdowns.

His consistent performances in the domestic circuit earned him Australia debut during the Rugby Championship last year against New Zealand and has gone on to play 12 Tests. He was also part of Australia's recently concluded World Cup campaign in Japan.

“I am very happy to have been able to sign an early extension to my contract and am looking forward to achieving my rugby goals with both the Brumbies and the Wallabies,” he told the official website of Rugby Australia.

“It’s great to have my immediate future sorted early and I am aiming to build on a personally successful 2019 season which went well for me.

“I love the culture and the environment at the Brumbies and am confident that we have a quality group of players here who can be very successful.”
