Australia duo Saia and Anthony Faingaa have agreed new deals with defending Super Rugby champions the Reds.

Hooker Saia and centre Anthony have extended their stay in Queensland by at least 12 months despite being overlooked by the ARU for a top-up contract.

The twins, 25, were had attracted interest from clubs in France and Japan but they have opted to remain loyal to the Reds.

Reds coach Ewen McKenzie said: "Anthony and Saia could have commanded more money overseas but they've shown once again that they're both young men with plenty of character by making a decision best suited to their future aspirations in rugby as opposed to a decision based on money.

"Playing for Queensland obviously means a lot to them and they're typical of the type of players and personalities we want to continue attracting and retaining at this organisation.

"Their decision also further reinforces the efforts being made in the contracting space with their value to the Reds extending far beyond their on-field talents."
