Australia captain James Horwill has signed a new contract to remain with the Reds for a further two seasons.

The 27-year-old lock has also committed his future to the Australian Rugby Union, making him available for selection for the Wallabies through until the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Horwill has made 87 appearance for the Reds, having made his debut in 2006, while he has gone on to skipper both club and country.

"I've made no secrets about what playing for the Reds and Wallabies means to me, so I couldn't be happier to have the contract finalised and my future settled," said Horwill, who has also been capped 77 times.

"We've created a pretty special environment here at the Reds over the past few years but we still feel there is plenty we can achieve as a group, beginning with winning another Super Rugby title this year.

"On a personal level, to play 100 games for Queensland would be a massive honour, so to now have an opportunity to be within reach of that mark is something that will be exciting as the time gets closer."
