The Melbourne Rebels are excited to announce the re-signing of centre Campbell Magnay.

In his second year with the Rebels, Magnay made five appearances during the Super Rugby AU competition, making four starts and playing over 300 minutes.

Melbourne Rebels Head Coach Dave Wessels said:

“It’s great to have Campbell recommit to the club. He's an important and influential member of the team. He's still young and we’re excited about what he can become in the next few years if he continues to work hard and enjoy his rugby.”

Magnay began his playing career in Queensland and, at the age of 17, became the youngest player to take part in the inaugural season of the National Rugby Championship in 2014.

A highly touted junior, Magnay was a valued member of the Junior Wallabies squad at the 2015 World Rugby Under-20 Championships held in Italy, joining fellow Rebels, Cameron Orr, Brad Wilkin and James Tuttle.

Since moving to Melbourne, following three years with the Queensland Reds and two seasons with Japanese side, Suntory Sungoliath, Magnay has gone on to play 16 games for the Rebels and looms as an exciting prospect heading into next season.

The twenty-three-year-old says he’s thrilled to be extending his stay with the Rebels.

“I’m very excited to be staying in Melbourne and working to cement myself as one of the best centres in Australia,” said Magnay.

“I’ve enjoyed my last few years at the club - it’s a very professional environment and I couldn’t ask for a better group.

“To be a part of the first Rebels team to make a finals series was really special and we definitely won’t be taking a step backwards next season.

“Every year we have gotten one step closer and I’m confident 2021 will be our year.”
