Winger Suliasi Vunivalu has agreed to a contract extension with Rugby Australia and Queensland Rugby, ensuring his presence until the conclusion of 2025.

Despite experiencing injury setbacks upon his return to rugby, the Queensland Reds standout was granted an opportunity to participate in the Wallabies training camp squad this year, after a call up from new head coach Eddie Jones.

Vunivalu, who made his debut in 2021 following a successful rugby league tenure with the Melbourne Storm, has recorded an impressive tally of 15 tries in his initial 26 appearances for the Reds.

In the ongoing Super Rugby Pacific season, the 27-year-old has demonstrated flashes of his exceptional abilities, featuring in ten matches for Queensland.

"I'm enjoying my time in rugby," Vunivalu told in an official statement released.

"I've learned plenty with the Reds and Wallabies and know there's a long way to go If I want to achieve my goals.

"We've got a great group of players and staff at Ballymore. I'm enjoying working alongside them every day.

"It's an exciting year for the Wallabies with the World Cup. I'm doing everything I can to be a part of it after the Super Rugby season."
