Kellaway will be playing for the Melbourne Rebels during the 2020 Super Rugby season.

Andrew Kellaway has recently been playing for Counties Manakau in New Zealand

Kellaway, who has recently been playing for Counties Manukau in New Zealand's Mitre 10 Cup, is now looking forward to adding to his tally of 25 Super Rugby appearances, all of which came with the Waratahs.

"Wanting to be back in Australia and trying to get my name on the national radar was a huge driver behind coming home," Kellaway said.

"I think the Rebels were unlucky to miss the finals in 2019 and I'm excited about what the group they've built can achieve moving forwards."

Kellaway enjoyed his the experience he gained during his time in Northampton and is now ready for another shot at life in Super Rugby.

He will be up against a host of Wallabies, including Dane Haylett-Petty, Marika Koroibete, Reece Hodge and Jack Maddocks, for a starting role at the Rebels.

"The UK was huge for me in terms learning about what I enjoy most about rugby and, I suppose, getting back to what it's all about which is enjoying the process and letting performances speak for themselves," said Kellaway.
