Wallabies star Israel Folau has committed to Rugby Australia for next year’s World Cup and beyond.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports the 69-test veteran has signed a new deal until the end of 2022.
Folau will continue to play for the Waratahs in Super Rugby.
Folau has scored 34 tries in 69 tests for Australia after debuting against the British and Irish Lions in 2013, joining rugby after stints in the NRL and ARL.
Folau’s wife, Silver Ferns shooter Maria Folau, recently signed a new contract in the Australian Super Netball to play with the Adelaide Thunderbirds.
Meanwhile, Australia takes on the All Blacks at 7pm Saturday in Yokohama, Japan.
