Super Rugby AU: Wallabies star James O’Connor set to re-sign with Rugby Australia through to 2023 Rugby World Cup

James O’Connor has won over Australian rugby, now he’s set to be rewarded.

The prodigal son of Australian rugby returned home on a two-and-a-half-year deal ahead of the 2019 World Cup on a fraction of his true value.

He did so because he wanted to fulfil his potential and wear the Wallabies jersey.

After his botched comeback in 2015, he sacrificed an estimated $500,000 to return to the Reds in a deal that was contributed to by Rugby Australia.

Now the 30-year-old is in conversations to stay at the Reds and is set to earn a significant top-up that will keep the playmaker in Australia until the 2023 World Cup.
