The NSW Waratahs have continued to shape their roster ahead of the 2022 season, locking in the services of Lalakai Foketi for a further season.
The talented Waratahs centre, currently in Dave Rennie’s Wallaby squad for the French series, has penned an extension to his existing deal ensuring he will wear the Sky Blue to at least the end of the 2022 season.
The former the Australian U20 representative got his first taste of Super Rugby in Melbourne with the Rebels before three seasons with the Bay of Plenty in the Mitre 10 Cup, as well as a season in France with Bayonne.
Foketi would make his debut for the NSW Waratahs in 2018 under Daryl Gibson, playing 12 matches in his first season for the side and has established himself as a mainstay since.
In a difficult season for the NSW Waratahs in 2021, Foketi has been a shining light, forming an exciting partnership with Izaia Perese in the midfield, ultimately earning a call up to Dave Rennie’s Wallabies squad for the inbound French series.
