Tom Kingston: Will swap the Waratahs for the Rebels
The Rebels have confirmed the signing of former Australian Under-20s winger Tom Kingston on a two-year deal from the Waratahs.
Kingston has scored six tries in 27 appearances for the Waratahs since making his debut against the Blues.
However he will now make the switch to the Rebels as a direct replacement for Richard Kingi.
Rebels general manager of rugby Sam Cordingley said: "We have been watching Tom's progress for some time, his early season form suggested that he probably could have seen more game time this season.
"He is a quality person and a fantastic athlete who will realise his potential with regular time on the park in a Rebels jersey.
"With the departure of Richard Kingi there was an opportunity to recruit a quality outside back and Tom is certainly that. We are all thrilled to have Tom at the club over the next two years."
