The Brumbies have signed winger Lausii Taliauli to a new one year deal for the 2017 Super Rugby season.

Taliauli is a former Australian Sevens squad member before signing with the Brumbies for the start of the 2015 season, debuting in round one.

The 23-year old says he’s looking forward to his third season with the Brumbies.

“It’s a huge honour to play for the Brumbies and I’m really looking forward to 2017,” Taliauli said.

“I’ve really enjoyed my first two seasons of Super Rugby here in Canberra. It’s the perfect fit for me to stay here and continue pushing myself here at the Brumbies.

“Talking to the boys, we are all looking forward to getting stuck into next season together.”

Brumbies Head Coach Stephen Larkham was thrilled to have the speedster re-sign, having showed a lot of potential in his first two seasons.

“We are definitely impressed with what we’ve seen from Lausii over his first two seasons of Super Rugby,” Larkham said.

“We’ve seen that he is a player who can make a real impact either as a reserve or in our starting side.

“We have some great competition for our wing spots in 2017 and having Lausii recommit to the squad adds great depth out wide for the squad.”

Taliauli is currently playing for the Canberra Vikings in the Buildcorp NRC.
