Having missed out on the Wallabies squad for the Rugby World Cup, Samu will be targeting a return to the international squad.
“I am very excited by the opportunity to extend my current Brumbies contract and commit myself to the Brumbies for the next three years,” he said.
“I feel I have settled in well in Canberra and I have enjoyed every minute of my time here.
“We have a strong bond within our playing group and a lot of quality in every position and I am looking forward to being able to contribute towards the club’s success.”
