The prostitute of the “reds” Richie Asiata was awarded a new contract in Queensland for his impressive season of super rugby in the Pacific.
The Asian and his Reds frontman Zane Nonggor, who dropped out of the season due to a knee injury, have both re-signed with Queensland until the end of 2024.
The Asian broke his arm before the season, but returned in time to the “reds”, whose clubs suffered from long-term injuries received by Josh Nasser and Alex Mafi.
“Richie has worked very hard on his game and on himself physically over the last 18 months,” said Reds general manager rugby Sam Cardingley.
“He has put himself in a great position with injuries to the hookers this season and he has been rewarded with several strong performances.
“We look forward to its growth over the next few years.”
The Asian said re-signing in Queensland means a lot to him.
“My family lives here, which was the main reason to stay in Balimor and continue to play for his home state,” said the 25-year-old prostitute.
“I look forward to what we can achieve as a team in the next few years here in Queensland.”
The development of Nonggora under the guidance of the clash coach of the Reds Cameron Lilikrap and the star of the props of Queensland and Walabis Taniela Tupou liked Cordingley.
“He went through the Queensland system as a young rider who played for one of the best in the world (Tupou), so he needed to be patient,” Cordingley said.
“He was recently awarded his first start and showed remarkable progress. We expect to see how it will improve in the future. “
Nonggor said: “I am very excited to re-sign at the Queensland Reds. This is my home state and I feel that over my time here I have greatly improved my feet.
“It’s unfortunate that I’m injured now and can’t play, but the guys have kept my spirits up and now I can really focus on rehab, play club rugby and make sure I’m ready for a full rehab. pre-season and 2023 season ”.
The Reds are hoping to avoid a fourth defeat in a row from the New Zealand opposition if they meet on Saturday with the “blues”, who took first place in Eden Park
