Rugby Australia and New South Wales Waratahs have jointly announced that scrum-half Jake Gordon has signed a two-year contract extension until the end of 2025.

Gordon made his Wallabies debut in 2018 during the November series game against Italy and since then has gone on to play 20 times for his national side. He will now remain committed to the Wallabies at least until the end of the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia.

"Jake is an experienced player and to have him re-sign with Australian Rugby is positive," said Australia head coach Eddie Jones.

"He is a leader at the Waratahs and someone who will be important for them throughout the Super Rugby season."

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old's club debut for Waratahs came in 2017 and has featured for them in 78 games scoring 25 tries. He was appointed captain of the side ahead of the 2021 season and was awarded the Waratahs best back for their 2021 and 2022 campaigns.

"I'm really excited to be re-signing with the Waratahs and Australian Rugby for another two years," said Gordon.

"I've been fortunate enough to play for this team for a number of years now and I believe that we have a group of players and coaches who are all committed to building something special here in New South Wales.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time for Australian Rugby and something that I’m desperate to continue to be a part of."
