Rugby Australia and the Brumbies have received a boost ahead of the Super Rugby AU Final, with back-rower Rob Valetini re-signing until the end of the 2023 World Cup.
The 22-year-old has emerged as one of the premier back-rowers in the country since making his debut in 2018.
The Melbourne-born Valetini was Man of the Match during the Brumbies 22-9 win over the Western Force in Qualifying Final.
Valetini was delighted to lock down his future in the nation's capital for the next two years.
“I couldn't be happier to be calling the Brumbies home for at least two more years," he said in a statement.
"The coaching and staff here have really helped in my development as a player and also as a person and I feel I've got a lot of improvement left in me.
"The club and Rugby Australia have showed a lot of faith in me and I look forward to repaying that."
Valetini made his debut for the Wallabies in 2019 against Samoa, with coach Dave Rennie confident that he will add to his four caps if he continues his impressive form.
Rennie added: "From an Australian Rugby point of view it's incredibly pleasing to re-sign a player of Rob's potential."
"We saw really big shifts from Rob in the last weeks of our campaign in 2020 and to his credit he's worked incredibly hard in the off season and has been a stand out performer for the Brumbies week in week out.
"His impact on the game, with or without the ball is impressive and that's exciting for the Wallabies moving forward."
