NEWS: The Melbourne Rebels have kept faith in international quality wing Dom Shipperley by re-signing him for the 2017 Super Rugby season.

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

Shipperley has played three tests for the Wallabies in 2012, and he was among the club's most dangerous players in the early rounds of this past season.

He has 63 Super Rugby appearances, including 18 tries to his name.

"It's exciting, especially with a couple key playmakers here next year and a couple good friends as well, so it's good to keep the group together," Shipperley said.

"I am really keen to get back on the field, enjoy my rugby and help drive the club."

Shipperley has been sidelined since Round 8 when he injured his knee against the Hurricanes after scoring the club's 100th Super Rugby try.

"Dom is very highly regarded in our organisation. A smart person and player who brings consistency, balance and professionalism every day," Rebels General Manager Baden Stephenson said.

"Dom was in great form prior to his injury so we look forward to seeing him return and play an influential role on and off the field in 2017."

Shipperley will resume training shortly before an expected return during the 2016 NRC with the Melbourne Rising.
