“I’m very happy for my family and I to be staying here in Queensland for the next couple of years,” Salakaia-Loto said.
“What we’ve got building at the Reds is exciting and I’m very fortunate to be a part of what’s to come in the near future.”
Reds head coach Brad Thorn said: “It’s good to see Lukhan Salakaia-Loto commit to Queensland for another three seasons.
“Lukhan’s come through with Queensland Under-20 and NRC and gone on to play for his state and country.”
Salakaia-Loto becomes the 13th player to re-commit with Queensland on a long-term deal.
