    Sydney - Wallabies hopeful Jake Gordon has signed a two-year contract extension with Super Rugby's Waratahs as he pushes for a place in this year's Rugby World Cup.

    The 25-year-old scrumhalf, who made his Australia debut against Italy in November, said he wanted to "play more and more Test footy".

    "The World Cup is a pretty big goal of mine and something that I'm desperate to be part of," Gordon said.

    "But right now I'm just focused on playing the best possible footy I can at club level, and hopefully the higher honours follow."

    Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said Gordon had shown he was "ready to step up to Test standard on a consistent basis".

    "Re-signing with the Waratahs is a clear indication to me that he's committed to becoming a Test match regular," Cheika added.

    The Rugby World Cup will take place in Japan from September 20 to November 2.
