Wallabies prop James Slipper has signed a contract extension through to the end of 2023, giving him the chance of appearing at his fourth World Cup, Rugby Australia said on Tuesday.
Slipper is Australia’s most capped prop, making 114 Test appearances since his debut in 2010.
Wallabies coach Dave Rennie said the 32-year-old retained his hunger to succeed and was constantly looking to improve.
“James is a top man and massively respected member of our mob and we’re thrilled he’s recommitted to Australian rugby,” he said.
“There’s no doubt he’s one of the leading props in World Rugby with his rare ability to start a Test match on both sides of the scrum.”
Slipper said he would remain with Super Rugby’s Canberra-based Brumbies team as he targets next year’s World Cup in France.
“I have a strong desire to be part of a successful 2023 World Cup campaign with the Wallabies and I believe playing my rugby here in Australia will give me the best chance to do that,” he said.
