Waratahs have announced the signing of Australian second row Miles Amatosero ahead of the 2024 season.

Amatosero started his professional rugby career with Clermont Auvergne in 2020 and went on to make his debut against Toulon. He has gone on to make 26 appearances for the club across three seasons.

"Firstly, I am incredibly excited about the opportunity to return home to Australia and represent the Waratahs and also be closer to my family. When I left a young age, it was hard to be away from them," he told the club's official website.

My sister has had two kids now, and I haven't really been around for much of that, my brother turned 18, so I’m keen to get back with them and have them in the stands.

“I’m excited about the prospect of living out my dream of playing for Australia is all I want. I've always said, 'Man, I wish one day I could be a Wallaby.’”

Waratahs Head Coach Darren Coleman is excited about the inclusion of Amatosero to the squad.

“Miles is an exceptional talent, and his return to Australian rugby is a significant milestone for the NSW Waratahs. His size, physicality & athleticism at such a young age make him a valuable asset to our forward pack”.

“I’ve enjoyed getting to know Miles, he is very motivated to grow his game and push for higher honours, but first and foremost he needs to get home, work hard and force his way into our strong forward pack, then good things will come from this”.
