    Cape Town - The Waratahs have announced that scrumhalf Jake Gordon will be in the sky blue jersey for another two years after agreeing a new contract.

    Gordon who joined the Waratahs in 2015 as part of the extended playing squad, says he’s pleased he has been able to settle on where he’ll play his rugby the next few seasons. 

    "It’s been a dream of mine to play for NSW since I can remember and I’m really excited to be a part of the Waratahs," Gordon said. 

    "When I look at our playing roster with Kurtley Beale, Israel Folau and Michael Hooper to name just a few, they’re the players who drove my ambition to play at this level. Now I’ll have the chance to play alongside them for the next few years. 

    "The Waratahs are known for playing an open style of running rugby and that suits my game, so I’m really looking forward to being part of the team and continuing to learn and play in a great team environment." 

    Gordon has been capped 10 times for the Waratahs, including six times as the starting halfback in Super Rugby, scoring 25 points from five tries. 

    Waratahs head coach Daryl Gibson says Gordon is a quality player who is not only talented but an athlete of exceptional ability as well. 

    "He is a really strong player and someone we can build the future of the team around," Gibson said.

    "Jake’s real strength is around the ruck and his running creates a lot of opportunities for other players with the space he creates. 

    "He had a break-out year last year in the Shute Shield and the NRC as he’s continued to play well with the Waratahs. His determination to succeed and his hard work along with his talent will help drive him towards a Wallaby jersey."
