Staying put: Sekope Kepu

Wallaby prop Sekope Kepu has recommitted to the Australian Rugby Union and the Waratahs for a further two years.

After celebrating his 50th appearance for the Waratahs against the Brumbies earlier this month, Kepu will stay in Sydney until the end of the 2015 season.

Now in his sixth year with the Waratahs, the 27-year-old father of three says his belief in the special times ahead clinched his decision.

"I've debuted and progressed with this club and I want to stay on and try to accomplish all the things that I first wanted to do here. The organisation is building something special. I guess I want to be around to be part of that," said Kepu, who was born in Sydney but raised in Auckland. .

"The Waratahs gave me my first opportunity. It's the reason I came over, it's something I love."

Since making his Super Rugby debut for the Waratahs against the Highlanders in 2008, Kepu made his international debut against Italy in 2008 and has since appeared in 23 Tests including six of Australia's seven Tests at the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
