Wallabies star Israel Folau is staying put for another four years.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that 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.

It's a coup for Rugby Australia after recently re-signing captain Michael Hooper and prop Allan Alaalatoa on for five-year deals.

Folau has scored 34 tries in 69 tests for Australia after making his debut 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.
