Rodda re-signs with Wallabies, Reds
Wallabies and Reds lock Izack Rodda re-signed with Rugby Australia, putting pen to paper on a deal until the end of 2020.
Rodda only made his Test debut last year, but has already made 10 appearances for Australia.
The 22-year-old said he was surprised by his own rise as he eyes a spot in the Wallabies' squad at next year's Rugby World Cup.
"I'm very excited to re-sign for two more years and I'm really looking forward to sticking with the Reds and the Wallabies," Rodda said.
"The Reds gave me my first crack and my first contract. I was one year out of school and I haven't really looked back since.
"It's an unreal program that's been growing each year and now that Thorny [Brad Thorn] is the boss, it's just going in the right direction as a club and all the players want to be there to keep growing that great vibe.
"Honestly, if you had asked me three years ago where I would be, I wouldn't have said here with the Wallabies.
"It's come very fast but I have loved every moment of it. In saying that, I still need to work very hard to keep my spot. There's a lot of competition in my position coming through both the Reds and the Wallabies so it's going to keep me on my toes.
"I want to try get in the World Cup squad then cement a spot in the 23, and hopefully win a World Cup."
After a much-needed win over South Africa, the Wallabies are preparing for a meeting with Argentina in the Rugby Championship on Saturday.
