Despite having less than 80 minutes of Super Rugby experience, the powerful center in last year’s Wallabies took part in seven tests in 2021.
“I thought someone was lying and lying, when Dave messaged me last year, kept silent with myself,” Ikitau told reporters on Tuesday.
Ikitau tried to score twice in Saturday’s 30-17 defeat to the Springboks and is building a strong midfield combination with Samu Kerevi.
Ikitau, 22, has been highly praised by head coach Dave Rennie. This two-year contract clearly shows that he can play for the Wallabies at the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.
Obviously, Ikitau signed his last contract for his outstanding performance against the Springboks over the weekend.
“I scored two tries, but they were team attempts, I think I was just in the right place,” said Ikitau.
Everyone works hard to get ahead and get better to make the team better. No one can consolidate except ‘Hoops’ own position.” Rennie expressed his joy at Ikitau in a statement Tuesday morning.
“Until the end of the 2023 rugby world cup his family as he is committed to Australian rugby, we are happy about Len,” said Rennie.
“He has a very mature attitude towards daily progress, is a humble young man, and is a talented young man. This pair of kangaroos and Brumbies supporters it’s all exciting.”
Ikitau fought side-by-side with Darcy Swain at the Brisbane Men’s Academy, then promoted with the Brumbies team’s towering runner-up. Swain said when asked about his first impression of Ikitau, He has a big left foot and two big shoulders.
“This is ridiculous for an 18-year-old boy. I now even weigh 120 kilograms per person, the men’s 140 kilograms for eight people bench pressed. I can do it not.
“So his physical fitness, one of the best physical centers in the game. He’s a great unit, Ability and he’s getting better, on top of that he also has excellent skills, and better and he’s always had this from a young age.”
Ikitau made his debut against the French team at AAMI Park in July and is likely to start again for the Kangaroos in the penultimate game of the Australian Rugby Championship against Argentina next Saturday.
The Wallabies have tested with the Pumas twice in 2020 and they will now face the South Americans in back-to-back matches.
