The Melbourne Rebels have received a boost on the eve of the National Rugby Championship (NRC) with prolific winger Dom Shipperley recommitting to the Super Rugby club.

After joining the Rebels in 2015, the 25-year-old has put pen to paper on a contract extension which will see Shipperley remain at the organisation until the end of the 2017 Super Rugby season.

With three Wallabies caps and 63 Super Rugby appearances, including 18 tries, to his name, Shipperley will continue to add a wealth of experience and leadership to the club’s exciting backline.

Shipperley, who earned three Wallabies Test caps in 2012, has been sidelined since Round 8 when he injured his knee against the Hurricanes after scoring the club’s 100th Super Rugby try at AAMI Park.
