Former Australia Under 20 international lock Jed Holloway has made a return to Waratahs ahead of the 2022 season after signing a two-year contract.

Holloway was previously part of Waratahs between 2013 and 2020 and has gone on to play 58 times for the club and head to Japan in 2021 alongside Australia skipper Michael Hooper to play for Toyota Verblitz.

The 28-year-old also played for Southern Districts between 2013 and 2019 and also had a loan stint with Munster. He also represented Australia U20 in South Africa during the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship.

“Ever since I started playing rugby, I wanted to be a Waratah. The team gave me a huge opportunity 10 years ago, and I’m extremely grateful that they are willing to take another chance on me now,” Holloway told the club's official website.

“I think both the Waratahs and myself have a lot to prove next year, but I believe we have all the pieces to make it happen.

"I learned a lot from some great people in Japan, and I’m excited to join the team and start putting that together”

“DC (Darren Coleman) has nothing but success on his record, he is a proven culture builder.

"To see what he has built at the Giltinis and to hear the hype he has brought to rugby in America in one year is amazing. I have no doubt he can do the same at the Waratahs next year”
