The Wallabies legend has shelved retirement plans and will play on for the Los Angeles Giltinis as a 39-year-old.
“I was really content with the way things finished. It was such a super season to end up with a championship,” Giteau, who debuted for the Brumbies in 2001, said.
“My wife Bianca has changed her life to suit me many times but when she was keen and the kids were pumped for more of LA, it made the decision an easy one.”
