Alaalatoa commits to Brumbies


Highly rated prop Allan Alaalatoa has signed a new contract with Brumbies until at least the end of 2019.

Alaalatoa was billed as a star of the future after making his Super Rugby debut in the semi-final against Chiefs in 2014.

Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham has backed the 22-year-old, who impressed for Australia during the 2014 Junior World Cup in New Zealand, to go from strength to strength after he committed his future to the Canberra-based side.

"Allan is a fantastic young player who has been with the club for two years now and has developed his game to a world-class standard," Larkham said.

"He has huge potential, and will play a key role in our push for the Super Rugby title over the coming years."

Alaalatoa said: "I made my debut here a few years ago and I'm really happy to have re-signed for another three years.

"This club means a lot to me and I'm looking forward to the next three years with the Brumbies."
