    Cape Town - Wallabies and Brumbies hooker Folau Fainga'a has decided to stay in Australia and remain eligible for Wallabies selection after signing a two-year extension to his current contract.

    Fainga'a was on contract through to the end of 2020 but has signed a new deal through to the end of 2022 by Rugby Australia and the Brumbies.

    The retention of Fainga'a will be crucial for the Wallabies given leading number two Tolu Latu is reportedly set to join Stade Francais, leaving only Jordan Uelese and Brandon Paenga-Amosa as the other hookers with Test expeience.

    "I am very happy to have been able to sign an early extension to my contract and am looking forward to achieving my rugby goals with both the Brumbies and the Wallabies," Fainga'a said in a Rugby Australia release.

    "It's great to have my immediate future sorted early and I am aiming to build on a personally successful 2019 season which went well for me.

    "I love the culture and the environment at the Brumbies and am confident that we have a quality group of players here who can be very successful."
