Wallabies backrower Lopeti Timani has knocked back interest from cashed-up European clubs to remain in Melbourne for another two Super Rugby seasons.

Timani's contract extension will keep him in Australia up to the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

The 26-year-old made his Wallabies debut from the bench against Argentina in September on the back of 12 appearances for the Rebels last year.
