International Rugby: Rodda ready for bright future

Australia second-row forward Izack Rodda has committed his future to the Wallabies and Western Force by agreeing a new two-year deal.

The 25-year-old ruled himself out of the international picture in 2020 as he headed to France to join Lyon, however, a year later he was back in his homeland with the Force, with the next World Cup a clear priority.

Rodda has won more than 30 caps for the Wallabies to date and has been a regular part of the national team squad under Dave Rennie in recent months, having also been a member of the Australia squad at the 2019 World Cup.

He said after deciding on his immediate future: "I'm really excited to commit long-term to the Wallabies and the Western Force.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed the last six months or so, firstly with the Wallabies and now with the Force in Super Rugby Pacific.

"It feels to me like both teams are building something special and that's something I'm looking forward to being a part of.

Meanwhile, Wallabies head coach Rennie, whose side are 10/1 to win the 2023 World Cup, added: "We've been really impressed with Izack's attitude and work-rate since coming into the environment last year.

"He's a world-class lock and his long-term commitment to Australian rugby can't be understated. While just 25 years old, he's played nearly 40 tests and has already been to a World Cup.

"His confidence has grown as a leader and that's evident in the impact he's having at test level and at the Force."
